ADDRESS

Golden Wood, Harley Estate,

Hassan District, Sakleshpur

Karnataka - 573134

Harley Estate is a 800 acre coffee estate with multiple hills, miles of jeep tracks, a river that runs along and through it, and a few waterfalls. The coffee is also top notch – The Harley and Kalledevarapura estate coffees have won a huge number of awards across the world over the last decade.

 

The Estate and the surrounding areas are wonderful for walks, hikes and even day long treks around. There’s a park with a surprise at the top of the hill within the estate. There’s the Sakleshpur Railway Line hike to explore. You can ask the staff to take you on a coffee tour and learn how coffee is grown, it’s various avatars and end products – there’s even a lab in the estate for a cupping session!

 

We keep a few cycles – riding around is both challenging and fun.

 

Of course, the stream and waterfall will keep you engrossed for hours. If you’d like, we’ll make arrangements for a riverside picnic as well.

 

The estate and surrounding areas are perfect for birding. The terrace affords a great view of the canopy and the region has a huge variety – the estate has been a favourite haunt of birders from Bangalore in the past as well.

 

Outside, there’s the Manjarabad Fort that’s worth a visit on the way in / out, and you can always take a detour to stop at Shravanabelagola.

 

But most of all, sit back and relax over board games, coffee, and the bonfire. It’s a wonderful place for doing nothing.
