Kavikalgandi of Chikmagalur

Kavikalgandi is a prominent hill view point in Chikmagalur region. It is located at a distance of around 12 kms from Mullayanagiri, the highest peak of Karnataka. There is a check post in the road that connects Mullayanagir and Baba Budan Caves. Kavikalgandi horseshoe view point can be easily reached by climbing up about 50 steps from this check post.

At foothill, there is a small idol of Hanuman. Atop the hill, someone has recently drawn a painting of Swami Vivekananda. This hill is always windy and pleasant. It gives a breathtaking view of Chandra Drona mountain range.

Happy travelling.
