The town lies in the Malnad region on the magnificent hills of the biodiversity hotspot, the Western Ghats. It has a temperate climate surrounded with lofty green hills full of coffee, cardamom, pepper and areca plantations . These crops which contribute mainly to the economy of the Taluk are grown in the surrounding villages and entire taluk are brought to Sakleshpur city for sale.

Sakleshpur, famous for its acres of coffee and spice plantations, has much more to offer. With many well kept secrets, be it the beautiful Green Route where trekkers find paradise or the small but enchanting star shaped Manjarabad Fort, Sakleshpur is a place to be discovered. 

Have a truly authentic dining experience at any of the small eateries here. Be sure to try the Akki Roti and Pork Curry!
