The enthusiasm of tourists in Chikkamagalur has led to problems with disruptive behaviour and littering. The local police at Lingadahalli station have taken strict action against the tourists who were misbehaving by throwing beer bottles and plastic on the Kallattigiri Kemmannugundi road, asking them to pick up their own garbage.

Despite the beautiful tourist spots, issues with garbage and unruly behaviour have surged up in the recent day. Tourists often come during weekends and enjoy, but later they also throw garbage along the road, which disrupts the local life and the vegetation.

There was also an incident recently where tourists were causing disruptions on Devaramane near Mudigere, a popular tourist route in the district. This behaviour upset the local villagers.

Devaramane in Mudigere taluk is both a place of worship and a tourist attraction, drawing numerous visitors daily. However, some tourists were seen parking their vehicles on the road, dancing and engaging in rowdy behaviour, and causing obstacles for passing vehicles.

The local police have taken strict actions to control the disruptive behaviour of the tourists, who engage themselves in such activities. Tourists, however, should be responsible for whatever they eat and drink at such places, and maintain peace and cleanliness in the environment.
