The Western Ghats fascinate one and all, with their impenetrable forests, stunning bio-diversity and awesome water falls. On the footsteps of this nature’s wonder, ensconced in the Kudremukh range of the hills is a small village, just 16 km from Karkala Town in Udupi District, yet miles and miles apart from any trace of the urban life. Amidst its ever-green environs and intense silence the rural agricultural life is an incomprehensible experience.
If you are ever curious of experiencing this life and being one with the nature, welcome to Mannapaapu.
