Devang Sanghrajka Riverside Camping in Sakleshpur, Chikmagalur | Get 20% off
The drive to the location is scenic and if you love driving, then it is a double-treat. We reached around 2 PM in the afternoon last weekend and yes, it was raining but intermittently. We enjoyed the rainy weather a lot. Kids had an absolutely wonderful experience with some of the activities on site like playing in the slushy mud, rain dance, and of course we spend a good amount of time in the water stream that passes around this camping site. No, it's not a river... it is a big water stream that flows from the hills around the site. The staff is extremely helpful, and Aditya who manages the site is a great person. He can also talk in Hindi and English fluently, not just Kannada. So, you will never have to worry about communication issues. The food was super delicious all through lunch, dinner and breakfast... served hot. In fact, when we arrived at the site we were the only guests there and that earned us brownie points in specifying the menu for both lunch and dinner. We did not stay in the tents that were available as we had two kids who were less than five years old and didn't want the weather to affect their health. Next time for sure though. The cottages were well-maintained and we stayed in one of them. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking with the stream flowing right in front of the cottages. Overall, a fantastic place to unwind and relax... and have fun with the various activities. A big thank you to the staff for making our stay a memorable one. I for one would surely like to revisit this place and stay for more than a day. And, in the rainy season! Cheers!
This homestay is at the top of the hill and a maximum of 12-15 people can be accommodated at a time . You feel at one with nature and can sit watching the hills for ever . The couple who host this place are very warm and make you feel at home. Extremely clean and tasty food add to the experience. I would love to go back and recommend this to any one who wants a calm get away with their family and friends.
A secluded home stay in the middle of jungle and mountains with little to no connectivity to the city. The jeep ride from hanbal to the spot is hell of a journey, you’ll remember forever. The view point from the spot is amazing and out of the world. However, beware of leeches if you’re going in monsoons. It’s a perfect weekend gateway if you want to relax with your family and friends.
"Amazing place. But the 5 star is specifically meant for the extremely courteous staff. Really loved it. "
"The place is awesome. Its a nice homestay with nice people, the owner himself is so humble that you can't make out that he is the owner. In this budget you can't expect more, in this monsoon the place is a delight to be experienced. Now few things to know before you come here,\n\n1. Its actually in Mudegere, a village which is at the hill top, not in the heart of Chikamagalur. \n\n2. The road to the homestay is very curvy and narrow, in Google map you try to search Girisiri Homestay, Aramane, get the location and from there its 2 Kms up. The homestay is called Bomrukallu, but it won't show up in map, you can ask the local people if you find any.\n\n3. Only Airtel worked, no jio, Vodafone. You won't find any network there.\n\n4. it's only one night stay, 2 days one night means 24 hrs.\n\n5. If you like having snacks in room, better to get them early coz you won't get anything there in the hill top.\n\n6. Please get all your daily products for your daily use, because it's not a hotel that will provide you everything. They are normal people and welcome you normally. Its a simple room which they will be providing.\n\n7. Its a first come first serve system, means they have 4 rooms and whoever goes first gets the best room, I am saying this because there are two rooms which has a shared bathroom. But yaa, you have a huge dining area and sofa set there. Rooms are having 3 beds, so if you have a big family, 4- 5 person can easily use them, sufficient pillows are there. Couple can use only one bed and use the other beds as a dumping spot.\n\n8. If you have an idea to book ? tent, please throw it out at once. Because you will be highly disappointed. The tents are there, but it's not in the Forrest, the tents are there where they also park there car most of the time.. Yaa and it's in the ground, of course you will get pillows and matress but litches can be your partner while it's dark. I think you got the Idea.\n\n9. Food is fine, but who will come here to have food, Its the nature which is important. Nature is so amazing that you will not waste any time sleeping or just sitting inside the room. Its a buffet what they will serve, and both veg and non-veg will be there. Omlete and rotis are easy to get. The food is like Ghar Ka Khana.\n\n10. They will provide a guide to show you the falls and the valley, don't dare to miss it. It is going to be one heck of an experience. You will love it. Parking can be a problem there, so please check the place carefully before you park, coz you have to come back using the same road. Don't try much reverse thingy because there will be no one to help you out in the jungle. \n\n11. Please get your football, badminton rackets and playing cards if you love to play because they have a shortage of it and there is a big lawn available for your use. \n\n12. Mosquito, I couldn't find one but suggest you to take a repellent and coil or liquid or something, coz they won't provide you that.\n\n13. Free evening snacks and bonfire, you will love it. Tea and coffee whenever you ask, actually you don't have to. They are already pretty humble.\n\n\nHugh.. That's a lot of information. Hope you guys got the idea. I will be giving few pics, you can get to know it more. Lastly this is a nice place to visit, you will enjoy it for sure... Thanks for reading..\n"

The campaign was great and the activities were sorted out. We went on a Thursday which ensured that we had the whole place to us and hence we were more at peace. The food can be improved.

I have to give 4 star just because the place . One the most amazing place to stay. It is literally near a mountain river. Kayaing was amazing. Night stay in camp was perfect, you can also choose to stay in room, but trust me camp is perfect. Washroom was common but was clean. Bonfire experience is also magical. Now the one start i deducted because of thrillophilia. Before booking they will take care of all you queries and everything. As you know you won't know the location before booking, so booked it. I got confirmation and all got the contact information but they was not reachable. I tried calling thrillophilia multiple times after booking to let me know about the exact location and also poc. But till finally i got the details when I was about to reach I had to wait for 1hr on the road to get the details as in where to go.
Easily accesible stay in Chikmagalur, we got the stay package at an amazing offer. We were served authentic south Indian food which was very delicious. Also, the package was inclusive of alot of activties but Mud Volleyball happen to be our favourite out of all. We really enjoy the experience. Thank you Thrillophila for amazing deal and the host for such an amazing welcome.
"very nice place to chill , very friendly host and an thrilled ride on Jeep"
Very nice camping experience with in the river side. Organisers are friendly. Food is really awesome. Campfire with music. Kayaking on lake. Carrom. Cricket. Volley. Rain dance. And other games are available. You can go for trekking in morning. They keep toilets clean but it’s common for all so waiting time is little worry.
