Our homestay is located 3,800ft above sea level in Sakleshpur. Our homestay is surrounded by the
untouched and unexplored beauty of the Western ghats. On rare occasions you might spot a few
plants, insects and animals that are endemic to this part of the world only.
We are well connected to the surrounding mountain ranges like Rottikallu, Jenukallu, Agani,
Haalkola and Sishila betta, which only adds to the things we have on offer at Saalugudda.
We have 2 ponds of various sizes at our homestay. All of them are fresh water ponds
and provide for the most picturesque backdrop.
We want to preserve Saalugudda for as long as we can and we try very hard to
take all measures to make sure no harm is made to the nature.
At Saalugudda we avoid using plastic as much as we can as it is not bio-degradable.
Also western ghats being one of the 8 hottest bio-diversity places is still protected from
commercialisation and modernisation and we would like to protect this pristine environment as
as we can.
We make sure all our patrons are well protected and even while doing the activities
at our homestay we make sure that there are pope who accompany our guests at all times. We use
safety belts where needed and our guides personally accompany guests to each trek.
These hills were once a home to the Royal tigers, ancient tales said they
were also a tiger coven. These were trails that were once hunted on and you can still feel the
majestic presence of the tigers that once ruled this region.
