Perched atop a hillock overlooking the quiet flowing Gurupura River, coconut groves and acacia plantations, the Pilikula Nisargadhama Resort is an oasis of calm.As the veil of mist lifts, undulating hills obscured by silky white clouds come to the fore. Frequent cloud bursts leave a trail of freshness and transform the landscape into an ocean of green. While those who enjoy a slowpaced holiday can hang up their feet and unwind, the adventurous can step out to explore Pilikula Nisargadhama that showcases the culture, heritage and natural bounties of the Dakshina Kannada district of Karnataka.Located barely 15 Km from Mangalore City in the nondescript Moodushedde village, the resort is in close proximity to the city and yet a far cry from its din and grime. Pilikula is a perfect getaway for those who seek torelax and rejuvenate in nature's company.
