There is a river so huge that it feels hard to believe it doesn’t flow eastward like Kaveri or Krishna. It forms gigantic Jog Falls that’s a feast for the eyes in monsoon season. The name of this west-flowing river is Sharavathy.

There is a valley so beautiful in the Western Ghats that it feels hard to believe it’s not Switzerland. The backwaters of the Sharavathy river in the valley present travelers with an unmatched beauty in terms of green mountain slopes, dense valleys and plenty of wildlife.

The nature is so pure and calm in Sharavathy valley that it feels like we travelers are disturbing this pristine setting. While we take good care of mother nature here, we will also trek, camp and explore in a true backpacker style.

Come, join Muddie Trails in this rejuvenating and detoxifying trip 🙂
