With access to many natural attractions in the Western Ghats, Shivamogga tourism rarely focuses on the city itself. The district has a largely verdant, grassy landscape, punctuated in places by craggy features, like waterfalls, ravines, and forest-covered valleys. Most itineraries in Shivamogga will include hikes around the mountainous areas and lots of wildlife-related activities, such as visits to sanctuaries, safari experiences, and spectacular bird-watching. Plan your vacation with our India trip planner and discover the best things to do in Shimoga.
