Famous Sunset of Agumbe

The locals say that Agumbe is world famous for its sunset. In fact, even the information board at this sunset point claims this. Now, there are a lot of sunrise and sunset points all over the country. But, frankly, only a few of them are really noteworthy. But, Agumbe is very special!!

 
According to me, the Agumbe sunset figures right in the top. In fact, it is only a close second behind the sunset I saw over the Indian Ocean at Lakshadweep Islands. Kanyakumari and other places take a back seat in front of Agumbe.


The Sunset point is located about 2 kilometres outside of Agumbe at what is known as the 14th mile. A platform has been created for the tourists to enjoy the pristine view. For those who are adventurous enough to climb a steep flight of stairs, an even higher view point waits for them.

 
The sight of the setting sun against the open horizon and surrounded by the Western Ghats is so good that it can actually give you goose bumps. It is said that on a clear day, you can actually see the Arabian Sea from here. And the Arabian Sea, my friends, is more than 40 kilometres away as the crow flies. Now, ain’t that something!!
