Coming by air The nearest international airports are Bangalore (140 miles) and Mangalore (65 miles). You can also fly to Mumbai or Delhi and take a domestic flight down to Bangalore or Mangalore. If your flight lands the night before or early morning, we suggest that you check into the Taj Bangalore Airport (5 minutes walk from the terminal). Ask for their best rates possible. You will need to take a taxi to Sakleshpur. We can give precise directions to your driver over the telephone. We can also let you know if other guests are landing at around the same time, so that you can share a cab. We recommend that you leave the airport around noon, to arrive at NIRVRTA in the afternoon.
