|The hillock of Posadi Gumpe, which stands 1060 feet high above sea level, is situated east of Manjeswaram and 15 kilometres south of Bekal. The hilltop offers a view of the Arabian Sea, Mangalore and Kudremukh.
As it is not a well-inhabited area, facilities are minimal. Hence, tourists who wish to trek to the hilltop in order to enjoy the lovely weather and the natural beauty of the place are advised to take food along. The nearest village is Paivalike.
The journey to Gumpe is a thoroughly enjoyable experience owing to the picture-perfect scenery along the way. The stunning variety of the shades of green, the rivulets that cross the roads at various points and the pristine beauty of the region all combine to make for a sensual treat.
