Yana, Karnataka

Been there recently?

Located in dense forests are the two tall rock formations that spear out into the sky from a vast area covered by evergreen forests. From above they look like two black peaks in an ocean of green. These unique and amazing natural formations formed over millions of years are named Bhairaveshwara (about 400 feet tall) and Mohini (about 300 feet tall). The Bhairaveshwara rock has cut itself into two at the centre forming a natural cave running its entire length. This spellbinding cave is narrower at the top and gains width towards the base. The natural light finding its way into the cave through some gaps at the top allows the visitors to have a clear look at the entire side portions of the rock from top to base leaving them astonished. It is a visual to remember for a lifetime. Yana is about 85 kilometres from Karwar, the district headquarters. Nearest rail link is at Kumata, 28 kilometres away. Nearest airport is at Hubballi, 165 kilometres away.
