Beautifully landscaped gardens & panoramic views make this hill station - Chandra Drona Parvatha as Hindu puranas called it. Located in the hill ranges of Baba Budan Giri which has the legacy of bearing the Karnataka’s tallest peak Mullayanagiri - Kemmanagundi is a nature lovers & adventure enthusiast haven!

The Krishnaraje Wodeyar IV, the Maharaja of Mysore used this place as the royal summer retreat, as the result of which the hill station has got its second name as KR hills. Kemmanagundi, the name is derived from three Kannada words, Kempu - red, Mannu - soil & Gundi - place, together meaning a place with red soil.

Placed at height of 1434 m, Kemmanagundi is incredibly luxuriant and has stunning weather throughout the year. Kemmannagundi is spectacular, with very thick forests, gurgling springs, breezy climate and calm atmosphere. The Royal Horticultural Society of Karnataka has its foundation at Kemmanagundi. It's tastefully laid out gardens amid the lush green environs makes for a picture perfect getaway.

The smell of unspoilt mountain air, the chirping of birds & the sounds of gurgling streams - Kemmanagundi is sure to revitalize and rejuvenate your body, mind & soul. Nature walks, picnics & spending a relaxed evening on a hammock would be the order of an ideal day at Kemmanagundi.

Kemmanagundi is a nice place to visit in any season. The monsoons liven up with forest with the sound of waterfalls well fed by the rains & the rain kissed thick forest with its fresh look is a sight to see.

Trekking, nature walks & taking a dip at the numerous waterfalls & streams are some of the best ways to enjoy. Other attractive places of interest include the Rock Garden, Hebbe Falls and Z-Point.
