Getting rooms in Horanadu is nearly impossible during the season and it is always better to book rooms in advance. We embarked on a three days road trip from Bangalore and decided to halt in Horanadu on the first day. Blame our intelligence; we did not book any rooms. In fact, we did not have a planned itinerary.
After enquiring about two properties, we finally stumbled upon Nagagiri Comforts, a decent cottage situated in a scenic place. We were able to get one big room with four cots. We were four! The deal was Rs. 3000/- per room (24 hours). This price will come down during off-seasons.

The beds were good and the rest room was comfortable to use. There was a wall-mount-TV, chairs, table, mirror etc. We had no time for rest, we refreshed ourselves quickly and started towards the Annapoorneshwari Temple in Horanadu. We returned late in the night and dozed off without liquor.
I got up early next day and after a cup of coffee, surveyed the property. It is the best for a budget traveller like me. The landscapes are good and there is adequate space for car parking. The road opposite to the cottage is small and one has to be careful while crossing it. There are shops opposite that sell provisions. I could see dense greeneries behind the shops and in the surroundings.
Towards the right is the river that was releasing the early morning mist. If you are walking towards it, mind your steps to not to step on something unpleasant. People, mostly travelers, come here to refresh themselves and leave behind their marks.
After some photo sessions, it was time to start to our next destination. We had our breakfast in a restaurant nearby. While on the way to Sringeri, we stopped at a tea estate for some photo sessions again. This post is a part of our three days road trip from Bengaluru to Agumbe. We covered so many places en route; I hope you enjoyed reading all of them. If you are social, consider following me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
