Beautiful picnic trekking spot near Belgaum Nersa and Godholi

belagavi

In my constant endeavor to give readers information, which others do not, here is another effort on the same lines.

 Belgaum is situated very near to nature and many spots near about 40 kms from the city are unknown to many and undiscovered. 

Bella Vista Belagavi

Here is one great spot. 

This is the beautiful picnic / trekking spot.

It is just 40 kms. Away from Belgaum and 15 kms from Khanapur.

This is MANDAVI River, which flows to Goa. This Place is after Nersa, which is 15 kms away from Khanapur.

 How to reach there:

 40 kms from Belgaum 15 kms from Khanapur.

 After Khanapur, take a right turn. Lot of banana plantation is going on due to ample water availability. You can park your vehicle just after Nersa and either go walking or take a vehicle from Nersa because road condition is worst.

 There are locals there who can help you get vehicles, to be on the safer side it is suggested to do a pilot trip first and then one could go along with a huge group. You won’t get anything to eat so take along all your food and water, if you want go there cook you can do that also.

 The best time to go there would be after the rains, all the photos were taken on 14th June, 2009 so you can see crystal clear water there for all to indulge into. As there is no road it is best to go after the rains.

 

 Godholi:

 Hill station like atmosphere at Godholi. This place is 15 kms from Nersa.

You reach to Godholi, which is just like a Matheran, a beautiful hill station. There is a table top before Godholi where one can halt for a night. There are no resorts as yet all is in nature’s best way. You can do a campfire, but I would suggest a day out trip to be on a safer side.

  1. I wanted to know if there are any week long trekking expeditions around belgaum. Any companies, or organizations which organize the treks.

  3. I liked this place. I want to go in a week. Is it the right time to go? and plz tell me the road condition because i want to go by car.

    • I visited this place today and just loved it…
      Route:
      You need to travel towards Khanapur.Once you cross the bridge, there is right turn just after the bridge that takes you to nersa. If confused after reaching khanapur,ask for road towards rumewadi.Dont take the left turn that takes you to rumewadi village, keep moving straight.
      You can see km boards for anmod. At around 8kms approx you will find a Railway crossing gate, just 1.5 kms from there you find a road to your right that takes you to nersa(5Kms).This 5Km stretch is scenic..
      After reaching nersa you need to go through the forest(2kms) Road is bumpy..You wont be allowed at the forest checkpost initially but you need to convince them.Recently there were cases of fire and pollution, so they wont allow.
      Road condition from Khanapur is good except for the stretch from Nersa to the spot.
      Spot is very calm and with crystal clear water. It could be a half day trip.I loved it..
      And yes, I could easily take my Wagon-R. No problems..
