Welcome to The Highlands Homestay best homestay around Agumbe and Thirthahalli. It is located about 3 minutes from the Varahi back waters, less than 10 minutes away from the Malgudi town Agumbe, famous Kundadri Hills, Kuppalli and Kavale Durga fort. Shimoga-Udupi, Mangalore Highway is just 1km away. The Highlands at Megaravalli is a serene setting that takes you away from your daily hassles to a different world of bio diverse Western Ghats. You wake up to the smell of locally grown coffee, listening to the chirping birds and sip your coffee looking at the areca nut farms with a view of the mountain backdrop. You are guaranteed to remember the taste of malnad food in our homestay.

Thirthahalli and Agumbe are best known for monsoon rains, wild life, and its Western Ghats. We have plenty of activities for various types - farm walk, bird watching, badminton, volley ball , indoor games and camp fire. Agumbe, Kundadri Hills, Kuppalli, Kavale Durga, Bheemanakatte and Sringeri are within half hour. You can take a refreshing dip in beautiful waterfalls like Sirimane falls and brave yourself jumping into Jogigundi or trek to the famous Barkana falls. You can explore many sites along the river Tunga around Thirthahalli like Parashurama konda, Tunga bridge and Bheemanakatte - some of which have very historic significance dating back to the time of Mahabharat. Adventure activities like climbing, swimming or river side camping and fishing will be managed by our well experienced personnel. Our team is very passionate about the place, culture and history and we provide a guide on request to places nearby.
