The Kanive


    "Ghatikallu" is remote beauty tucked in the heavenly WesternGhats of Chikmagalur. Ghatikallu is an imaginary name given by us to the one rock mountain, with one of the most stunning views of the valley below. There are many myths about this 'One rock Mountain' which when heard, will only kindle the nostalgic feeling of being one with history.

     

    "The Kanive" resort has the best view of Ghatikallu. Kanive means Valley and very few places can be aptly named. A resort adjoining the beautiful valley formed between the mighty Ballalarayanadurga and the Kudremukha ranges.

     

    A six hour drive from Bangalore along well connected & accessible roads can get you to Kanive. A Perfect getaway from all the hustles and bustles of a routine city life. Numerous waterfalls, trekking trails, campsites, picture perfect tea estates, serene sun set spots and so on. Trek to BallalarayanaDurga is an amazing experience with steep slopes and lush green forest. Other must see attractions include a breath-taking waterfall rejuvenating your senses and the vibrant colors of the sky at the valley view point. 

     

    To make your stay memorable we also offer options such as camp fire, camping, outdoor games, plantation walks, rafting and kayaking (seasonal activities).

     

    The Kanive is one of the best resort in chikmagalur. It is best suited for team and family outing. This place is one of the ideally places around bangalore for 2 day trip.
