Amedhikallu has a huge monolith at the top which appears like a giant turtle and three large stones which give an appearance of a stove. This peak is surrounded by many other important peaks of Western Ghats. Amedhikallu is considered to be one of the scenic treks in Karnataka and is a two day trek if one wants to make it to the peak comfortably. The starting point is Shishila village from where the trail starts. The initial trail is through a fairly dense forest, but the trail itself is pretty wide.

The Great Brahmaputra Descent Siang River Expedition
An exciting journey down one of the world's greatest rivers, an option only for the true adventurer. The river, after flowing gently eastwards through Tibet, cuts the Greater Himalayas and the highest unclimbed mountain in the world, Namche Barwa before it enters Arunachal Pradesh, where the expedition begins, a few miles inside the line-of-control with China. The expedition takes you through remote hillsides dotted with tribal settlements in clearings surrounded by leech-infested rainforest. It negotiates the finest big volume white water in an area, which is surely one of the most inaccessible in the world. A 7-day self-contained run from Tuting to Pasighat (180 kms approx.) through one of the most inaccessible regions in the world makes this one of the most premier expeditions offered. Between 2002–09, we have run 08 very successful expeditions on the Upper Brahmaputra, and several people bear testimony to our operational expertise in one of the toughest logistical operations in the Indian Himalayas.
Thousand lakes trek & sightseeing
Dagala is the name in general for the mountains lying between Thimphu and Dagana. These complex and mosaic of mountains are indeed paradox that there is a saying in Bhutanese, ‘even by the time the Djop (nomad) dies of old age, he won’t have understood Dagala’. Dagala is also known for having so many lakes, hence the name Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek. It is a moderate trek with mostly short trekking days, but includes a few steep climbs. The route follows ancient path between Thimphu and Dagana. In ancient days, the Daga Penlop would be seen frequently travelling this route with a caravan of retinue as he paid his monthly or quarterly visits to his superior in Punakha or Thimphu. At every halt, legends surrounding lakes, mountains, stones and cliffs abound that you may wonder whether you have become Alice in Wonderland, adorned with a multitude of pristine, crystal clear lakes. As you walk amidst the shimmering lakes you’ll be treated with stunning views of the entire Himalayan mountain range and some of the world’s highest peaks including Mt. Everest, Jomolhari, Masang Gang, Jichu Drake, Gangche Ta and many more. During the trek an entire day will be dedicated to visiting some of the more picturesque lakes, fishing and resting. The trail also takes you through several Bhutanese villages so you can get a good idea of traditional Bhutanese village life as you make your way back from the lakes.While this is a somewhat strenuous trek, it is well worth the effort because of the tranquility and beauty of natural landscape that you will enjoy during you visit.
