THINGS TO DO IN HONNEMARADU IF YOU VISIT KARNATAKA


HONNEMARADU

Honnemaradu is a place situated close to the Udupi region of the state, Karnataka on the backwaters of the Shravathi River. The name literally means golden lake in Kannada and therefore the place overlooks the Linganamakki Reservoir. Honnemaradu is situated against the backdrop of the Western Ghats’ greenery and is a natural getaway like few others in Karnataka. 2021 is here and there is a hope that we can travel safely so this place must be on your bucket list.

Get on the water

The Shravathi River hosts many activities like coracling, kayaking, wind surfing and sailing. Since Honnemaradu is a protected wildlife sanctuary zone, these activities are allowed only in few designated areas. Choose one or more to spend a whole day round the water.

Head for the hills

Although the huge waterbody may be a highlight, so are the Western Ghats. Guided treks and hikes are on offer and Bhimanahejje Hill may be a particularly nice one. It takes about two and a half hours from Honnemaradu and presents jaw-dropping views over the Shravathi’s backwaters.

Live off nature

Well, not literally but there are options to camp on an island within the backwaters. Your dinner is going to be packed and you’ll make your way there on a coracle. Find out how to pitch a tent or build a campfire and although it’s no glamping experience, you’ll leave tons richer, with many an useful life skill under your belt.

Indulge in culture

Visit the 16th century Aghoreshvara Temple, which displays architectural styles from the Nayaka dynasty. Or inspect local chittara art, which is analogous to Warli art but with more emphasis on geometry; maybe even take a category or two to find out some basic techniques.
