Trek on the railway track
The green route "trek on the railway track", is a stretch of track from sakaleshpur to the Subrahmanya rail road station, which was closed down in 1996 to convert the gauge from meter to broad gauge. In the 2007 the train service was commissioned and nowadays many people are use the train to reach donegal and start the trek thereafter.
This track, that traverses some distance of the Western Ghats, had been abandoned, but now the track has been converted to broad-gauge. It forms a part of 56.80 km stretch from sakaleshpur to Kukke Subrahmanya, dotted by 58 tunnels, 109 bridges and about 25 waterfalls. Since 2005 goods trains are carrying freight to/from the Mangalore port. It’s recommended to trek after monsoon season i.e. during October. The passenger trains have started playing on the route since 2008. Currently, there are two passenger trains running on this route, one from Mysore via Hassan(daily), and another from Bangalore, via tumkur and arsikere(alternate days). Another place to trek in sakaleshpur taluk is Bisle ghat or Bisle reserve forest.
