Kabbinale, a village at the foot hills of the Western Ghats (Sahyadri) Agumbe range, is situated in Karkala taluk of the Udupi district of Karnataka state, India. In the Kannada language, kabbinale means "crushing unit of sugarcane ". This small village is around 50 km from UdupiTown, and the nearest town is Hebri, which is around 20 km from Kabbinale. The area is covered by thick rain forests, evergreen, and populated by wild animals. The last settlement, called Kuchur, is around 1500 feet above sea level. Korth Baill is the highest, and last point of village Kabbinale. It can be reached from Hebri via Mudraadi or Bachappu or Ajekar via Munniyal. Kabbinale village has been included into the Kuduremukha National Park Project and local people of several villages are opposing the Government's move to declare the villages, including Kabbiale, as tiger reserve.[1]
