Bisle View Point – Bisle Beauty Spot – Western Ghats – Elephant Corridor
On my Bengaluru – Kukke Subramanya – Bengaluru road trip I decided to take Bisle ghat while going and Shiradi ghat while coming. Bisle view point or Bisle beauty spot was on my list since a long time. So planned this way to Kukke Subramanya.
Bisle view point or beauty spot
Bisle view point is in Bisle a small village in Western Ghats, we find it while going to Kukke Subramanya Temple. Bisle Ghat is the alternate route for Kukke Subramanya, while the regular route is via Shiradi Ghat.
Tourist or adventure lovers often take this road to visit Kukke Subramanya. This route has a very less traffic compared to all other ghats in Western Ghats(Includes Shiradi Ghat and Charmadi Ghat). Going alone in bike during night time is one of the most dangerous thing.
Bisle beauty spot is a major attraction in Bisle. People who are travelling across this way definitely give a visit here to see the beautiful mountains behind the scene. From view point it looks like thick forest. But view is really amazing. Few years on our family trip i missed this place, now it was possible only because of being biker.
Bisle is even famous for Elephants, they often criss cross this area and is a elephant corridor of Western ghats. During monsoon this place is another word for heaven.
We took : Sakleshpura -> Byakaravalli -> Hethur -> Vanagoor Handpost(Diversion to right here) -> Bisle Ghat
If you are coming from Bengaluru then you can even come from this route : Bengaluru -> Channarayapatna -> Holenarasipura -> Arakalagudu -> Shanivarsanthe -> Vanagoor Handpost -> Bisle Ghat
On the way to Bisle view point just before 4 kms you will see this ridge point.
An inscription laid on a concrete platform which is mentioned the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and the Ridge. It describes which was the river flow.
Right side it is written Bay of Bengal which means the rivers or streams flowing this side will reach Bay of Bengal and Left side it is written Arabian Sea which means the rivers or streams flowing this side will reach Arabian Sea.
This was laid by the British finding that rain water splits and reaches two different seas. It is really amazing to know this stuff.
