Crazy Roads of Someshwar Ghats

This is a downright crazy stretch between Agumbe and Someshwar. It just lasts about 10 kilometres, but offers a thrilling experience. And even better if you are on a motorcycle.

The extremely steep roads, the umpteen number of hairpins and dead turns, the choppy concrete roads thanks to the heavy rains and the dense forest cover all around makes these ghat roads a magical place.

It is at the beginning of these ghat roads that you will see the famous sunset point of Agumbe. And it is here that you will get a crash course on overtaking in short, steep and winding roads.

My friends and I rode on these ghat roads multiple times during our recent visit and we loved the thrilling experience it offered.
