YAANA

YAANA



   






 Yaana, in the heart of the thick woods of Western Ghats, is a pilgrim center as well as a tourist destination placed amongst the evergreen picturesque forest of the Sahyadri Mountains.

There is a proverb in Kannada which goes like this "Sokkiddare yaana, rokkiddare Gokarna" meaning you need to have bravery to visit yaana and money to visit GOKARNA.
   Yana, in the heart of the thick woods of Western Ghats, is a pilgrim center as well as a tourist destination placed amongst the evergreen picturesque forest of the Sahyadri Mountains. The place, small coastal town and a commercial center, is known for its imposing mountains, very different kinds of rocks and stones, gushing misty water falls and the most sacred temples.

It is situated at around 40 km from sirsi and 20 km from Kumta in uttara Kannada (North canara) district.
  
There was a proverb in this area that only those with tremendous bravery and determination can go to Yaana, personifies the trek to Yana of the past, really an adventurous deed. Yana also moves on the evolution of modern world with motorable roads, fantastic hotels and the emerging modern civilization, of course, with its own ills. 

The impressive rocks have been roughened in the due course by the extreme conditions of sun, hysterical winds and heavy rains. It is of the opinion that Yana is a must for hikers and trekkers - they will be delighted with Yana.
