Motorists traversing the Charmadi Ghati road have encountered an unexpected challenge: wild elephants roaming the area. Reports indicate that these jumbos have been appearing on the road’s edge just after sunset for the past two days, sparking fear and apprehension among travelers.


The presence of these elephants has led to a scramble among motorists, who now hesitate to venture onto this route after dark. Many have expressed concerns for their safety and have requested intervention from the forest department to relocate the elephants.

The situation has escalated to the point where motorists find themselves waiting for hours on the highway, reluctant to proceed amidst the looming threat of encountering wild animals.

The Charmadi Ghat road serves as a crucial link between Chikkamagaluru and Dakshina Kannada district, witnessing a steady flow of vehicles on a daily basis. However, the recent sightings of elephants have disrupted travel along this route, instilling fear and uncertainty among commuters.
