Sightseeing Never Ends at Old Magazine House, Ganeshgudi
Rivers, sanctuaries, heritage sites, wildlife, natural formations and temples - if you’re looking for a trip that includes all these and more, then head straight to Old Magazine House. While staying in the ethnic bamboo huts is an experience in itself, there’s much more to explore here.
You Cannot Afford to Miss River Kali
From coracle rides to river rafting, the adventure never ends at river rafting. Lie down in the shallow gushing waters for a natural Jacuzzi experience and unwind. You can also try kayaking and fishing here. Safety measures are taken at all times and you’re guided by experts through your adventures.
Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary is a Whole New World
Replace the piercing honks with the gentle songs of exotic birds. Spot wild animals like tiger and deer under expert guidance. Explore the thick deciduous forests into the habitats of wild animals. Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary spans over 800 square kilometers and is situated at an altitude that ranges from 100 to 970 meters.
Syntheri Rock Awaits You
Syntheri Rock is a huge monolithic structure made of granite and stands 300 feet tall. The sight is made all the more beautiful as it is surrounded by Kali River amidst the thick forest. The slow erosion has given this mind-blowing structure a character of its own.
Visit the Majestic Supa Dam
Have you ever visited a dam that is surrounded by thick forest? That is Supa Dam for you. Roughly about 25 kilometers from Dandeli, it is a beautiful sight that you must experience. Don’t expect to get inside the vicinity as it is prohibited but the outside view is enough to leave you in awe of it.
Anshi National Park for Wildlife Spotting
Anshi National Park is right next to Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary. The Park is a Tiger reserve and spotting wildlife is almost a certainty here. Animals like elephants and sloth bear have also made Anshi their home. The entire reserve is spread over 340 square kilometers.
Skyes Point for a Panoramic View
Find yourself holding your breath with amazement at Skyes Point. The thick forest, deep valley and the curvy River Kali will form a scene that no words can describe. Viewing the confluence of River Kali and Nagajhari forms a great feast for eyes. Watching hornbills from this point is a unique experience.
Go Back to the Royal Times at Shivaji Fort
A mere 22 kilometers from Dandeli is the Shivaji Fort and was built by the great Maratha warrior himself. It was also occupied by the great Sangolli Rayanna at one point of its lifetime. Shivaji Fort allows you to take home a piece of history with you.
Pay Your Respects at Kavala Caves and Sri Mallikarjuna Temple
Traverse your way up 375 steps to reach Kavala Caves that host a naturally formed Shiva Linga. Coursing through the narrow tunnels to reach the Linga is quite exciting. The Kavala Caves go back all the way to prehistoric times.
Enjoy the Kadamba architecture of Sri Mallikarjuna Temple. The Temple is believed to predate even the Shivaji Fort. Navarang Mantapa is a special attraction.
