Two days adventure camp at Agumbe - [18th - 19th May 2013]  


 

About the place: Agumbe is a village located in the Shimoga district in the state of Karnataka, India. Lying in the Thirthahalli taluk and the Malnad region. Agumbe is among the places in India that receive very heavy rainfall & that is why Agumbe also popularly known as "Cherarapunji of the South". It is also the home of the Agumbe rainforest research station, the only permanent rainforest research station in India. The renowned herpetologist Romulus Whitaker called Agumbe the Capital of King Cobra. An area near Agumbe has been converted into a protected area for Medicinal Plants to help in their conservation.

Since 2005, Naxalite activity has been observed near Agumbe and hence a lot of Karnataka State Police personnel have been deployed and check posts created in all intersections. This however has not hindered visitors from visiting the region to enjoy the natural beauty of Agumbe and its surroundings.
