OOty of Karnataka
A green patch of forest situated at 3400m above sea level, in the rocky region of Chitradurga - Popularly known as a 7 hill fort in history is a place called Jogimatti. Amidst prevailing heat wave and perennial drought, the green cover prevailing at the edge of the city has created a climate that resembles Ooty. Hence, the region is also called as ‘OOty of Central Karnataka’. Presence of heavy breeze, misty mountains and greenery are attracting the people from far away places. It is very clear that the forest got its name from a saint called ‘Jogi’, who was known for his social services, and a natural cave that houses a Shiva Linga and idols of Veerbhadra and Basavanna. Jogimatti is home for rare animals, including leopards and sloth bear that are on the verge of extinction, and the plants with medicinal value. In the midst of the forest, there is a waterfall called ‘Himavad Kedara’ that rejuvenates the visitor. Jogimatti is a trekkers delight and must see the place for nature lovers in the pristine state.
