TrekkerS’ Paradise: A splendid view of Ane Jari near Kollur.

The trekkers believe that Ane Jari is not just a trekking spot but it can be much more than that. A trek to Ane Jari can be a whole learning experience in itself. If one goes there with just one intention of trekking then they will only see a pond locked amidst dense forest, some beautiful waterfalls and hills. Fortunately, this spot has much more to offer. Many of the trekkers who have relished what Ane Jari has to offer say that it can be a wonderful spot for learning for children and grown ups.

“It is the best suited spot for nature camps for children. With a plethora of medicine herbs all over, it can be a great place to know and learn more about ayurveda medicinal herbs,” says trekker Dinesh Holla who feels that the spot has not been maintained properly by the forest department.

“If at all maintained properly the spot can be used a very apt place for nature camps. Since there are natural pathways, the forest department can also think of having safari rides here, but no thought has been spared towards the same,” says Holla.

As far as animals are concerned, one can find large number of deers and bison. Do not go by the name.

Though the place got the name ‘Ane Jari’ because of large number of elephants which once dwelled here, at present there are no pachyderm at all.

However, what visitors can see here is Arasinagundi waterfall, Kodachadri hill, Korsigudda, Nelkal waterfall, Bavadi waterfall and Devakundabetta located close to Ane Jari, which can also be good trekking spots.

Those wanting to have a feel of Ane Jari can take a bus to Kollur and hire a private cab to cover the said 6 kms distance to reach the destination. Adventurous types can trek it out as well.
