About Samse Village & Kuduremukh National Park

Upasana Retreat is situated overlooking the picturesque village of Samse, bordering the Kudremukh national park at an elevation of 960 metres above sea level.
The village is spread out across a wide area and is sparsely populated. The Kudremukh national park on the borders of the village is a densely forested wildlife sanctuary, home to a wonderful variety of flora and fauna and is also a designated tiger reserve.
Ironically,  it remains as one of the last remaining biodiversity hotspots in the country. This is the location of Upasana Retreat. Our resort is also surrounded by numerous hills with terraced tea gardens, coffee plantations and  paddy fields. Leading out from Upasana Retreat is a Hikers paradise which comprise off several lovely walks along the hills, which shelter sparkling streams and unbelievable breath taking water cascades.
