You can ride in a car from Bangalore, the IT and outsourcing hub in the state of Karnataka, well connected by road, rail and air. Drive in a westerly direction, towards the port city of Mangalore. Don't rush, though - allow yourself time to visit the heritage temple sites of Belur and Halebidu before you get to the hills at the plantation and the trading town of Sakleshpur. While driving through the town, stop by at the quaint and well kept Munzerabad Club – founded in 1894. Continue on with caution - 2.7 km away, the highway has a fork to the right with signs for Kadamane. Follow the signs from here on and you will be home soon. The 250 km journey from Bangalore, should take you about four and a half hours, without the stops that I mentioned.
You can choose to make an approach from the west from Mangalore that is well linked by sea, road, rail and air. The picturesque three-hour drive on the Mangalore to Bangalore highway will take you through the lush, virgin rainforests of the Western Ghats, past the town of Uppinangadi and the Shiradi Ghats. You will leave the highway at the police outpost at Maranhalli and follow the road, all 14 km of it, to reach my bungalow at Kadamane estate, where I am the Sinna Dorai.
