Gateway of Malnad

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.

Where to stay in Shimoga

A major regional town and regular base of explorations, Shivamogga has a decent set of accommodations to cater to its guests. Lying mainly southwest of Shivamogga Town Railway Station, a set of hotels and guesthouses offers some upmarket, business-class options, as well as refreshingly simple lodgings designed for outdoor adventurers. Take a look at some places closer to the Tunga River if you want a little removal from the city, through most people are happy enough with the bit of instant green afforded by Gandhi Park in the middle of town.
