How to reach: By Car: We started from Bangalore taking the Bangalore-Mangalore road, before Bellur Cross, watch out for a sign board indicating Turuvekere. Turn left and reach Turuvekere. From there proceed towards Aralaguppe, from there, take the forest road which leads to Arsikere. From there Haranahalli is around 8kms. After Haranahalli, we proceeded towards Javagal.
Food/Accommodation: Accommodation is available in Arsikere. So plan to reach Arsikere by evening to make the night stay.
