Why Sakleshpur is called ‘poor man’s Ooty’?

               Situated in the Hassan district of Karnataka, Sakleshpur is a quaint hill station that boasts a scenic environment, pleasant climate, and lofty green hills that are full of cardamom, coffee, pepper and areca plantations.

               It’s a spectacular town tucked away in the Western Ghats on the Bangalore-Mangalore highway. Sakleshpur is known for its salubrious climate, and had earned the sobriquet ‘poor man’s Ooty’ during the British rule.

               Tourists can enjoy exploring the flora and fauna of the Bisle Reserve Forest, which is just 45 km away from the city. The view of the forest is really extravagant.

               Besides, trekking to Bisle Reserve Forest and Kumara Parvatha are also the best ways to explore the rich biodiversity of the place.

               Manjarabad Fort is another major attraction, which provides an aerial view of the Western Ghats.
