Directions to Retreat (Anandadhama; 90km from Bangalore)

You can reach Anandadhama via Kanakapura which is 55km from Bangalore (approx. one hour time). At Kanakapura you have to take a left turn towards Sangama / Mekedatu (SH-92). The distance of 37km is about an hour's drive. Follow direction boards to Jungle Lodges & Resort - Galibore Fishing Camp. Direction boards are at all prominent places. If in doubt ask for Sangama / Mekedatu road. After reaching Sangama take right on the mud road into the forest (towards Galibore Fishing Camp) and travel for 2.5km. You will find the Anandadhama retreat on the left side. If you see a Gurukul on the right, you have just missed the retreat. Come back.
