    Drive 5 Hours To 'This Slice Of Heaven And Gape At Mountains, Waterfalls And Go Hiking

    Shortcut

    No really, because it's surrounded by the Western Ghats, Bisle Ghat is unofficially called as Heaven On Earth. It's just five hours drive from Bangalore and the drive down is through a reserve forest and waterfalls.

    What Makes It Awesome

    Tucked away deep in the Western Ghats, Bisle is just a five-hour drive from Bangalore and if you are looking for a biking destination that's not Nandi Hills, it's this. The ghat section of Bisle, which is a reserve forest near the border of Hassan, has a scenic stretch of pristine reserve forest, mountain ranges and a trekking trail. So really, it's for the bikers, trekkers, and pretty much anyone who wants to breathe in the fresh mountain air. Oh, and that view from the Bisle Ghat Viewpoint is truly spectacular. 

    You really need to see it with the fog cover slowly disappearing. Because once it does, you'll be gaping at the magnificent view of not one, but three mountain ranges -- Yenikallu Betta, Doddabetta and Pushpagiri, and Kumaraparvatha. And greens all around. Since the ghat section is what connects the temple town of Kukke Subramanya with the coffee estates of Sakleshpur, once you are done marvelling at the view, you can hit up either place.  

    What Could Be Better

    Even though Bisle Ghat is well-connected by roads, because of monsoons, most times the roads are badly damaged or filled with debris. It's advised that you talk to the localities and the forest reserve people around the region.

    Pro-Tip

    Do check with the forest department office in Bangalore on which route to take best.
