About the Place:
Bisle forest, in the heart of south-western India's Western Ghats, is home of India's (and indeed earth's) most spectacular rainforests.

To the south it merges with Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary of Kodagu (Coorg) district. To the west it has the Kukke Subramanya forest range. The dense rainforests, the hilly terrain, rich flora and fauna and innumerable water courses make it a nature lovers and a trekker's heaven.
