The place we stayed @ Thirthahalli

Bananki Home stay
It was an experience Nature?s Bounty and receive true Malnad hospitality. Come to feel the exciting beauty of the hills, rivulets, the evergreen forests or to simply relax and fill your lungs with oxygen. The lush green countryside around is the place to be for recharging the mind and the body. Bananki Home stay is far from the madding crowd, yet it is so easy to arrive here. Bananki is the name of our ancestral home.
