Sakleshpur is located in the Western Ghats, a mountain range that stretches from Kerala to Gujarat. The southern range, which includes Bisle Reserve Forest and the region around Sakleshpur is listed as one of the 18 most diverse spots in the world in terms of flora and fauna. The sub-tropical climate and heavy rains during the wet season create an environment where several unique plant and animal species flourish.
Please make sure that you are carrying all the necessary spares and rain wear. Ensure all your belongings, especially clothes & spares are packed properly. Keep extra covers if necessary(again goes with individual needs).
Depending on the intensity of the rain the Leads would decide to continue riding or halt. Please be prepared to ride in such circumstances.
