Trekking at Nemmadi Homestay, Sakleshpur, Hassan

The Green Route "Trek on the Railway Track", is a stretch of track from Sakleshpura to the Subramanya railroad station, which was closed down in 1996 to convert the gauge from meter to broad gauge. In the2007 the train service was commissioned and nowadays many people are use the train to reach Donigal and start the trek thereafter.

This track, that traverses some distance of the Western Ghats, had been abandoned, but now the track has been converted to broad-gauge. It forms a part of 56.80 km stretch from Sakleshpur to Kukke Subrahmanya, dotted by 58 tunnels, 109 bridges and about 25 waterfalls. Since 2005 goods trains are carrying freight to/from the Mangalore Port. Its recommended to trek after monsoon season i.e. during October. The passenger trains have started plying on the route since 2008. Currently, there are two passenger trains running on this route, one from Mysore via Hassan(daily), and another from Bangalore, via Tumkur and Arsikere(alternate days).

Another place to trek in Sakleshpura taluk is Bisle ghat or Bisle reserve forest.
The town itself makes for a pleasant halfway stop for travellers along National Highway 48—being the apex town in a long trail of road beginning in Bantwal near Mangalore, winding its way up the Western Ghats. As such, the town is often swathed in mist as the cool temperate surroundings are met with warm air from the coastal lowlands. The exit highway is equally picturesque with tall hedges lining both sides of the road, enclosing coffee groves within.
