It is located in the Sahyadri mountain range of the Western Ghats, about 60km from Karwar port, 40km from Sirsi, and 31km from Kumta. The two unique rock outcrops near the village are a tourist attraction and easily approachable by a small trek through 0.5km of thick forests from the nearest road head.Yana is famous for these two massive rock outcrops known as the Bhairaveshwara Shikhara and the Mohini Shikhara . The huge rocks are composed of solid black, crystalline Karst limestone. Bhairaveshwara Shikhara is 120m in height, while the Mohini Shikhara, which is smaller, is 90m in height. Yana is also well known as a pilgrimage centre because of the cave temple below the Bhairaveshwara Shikhara where a Swayambhu linga has been formed. Water drips from the roof over the linga, adding to the sanctity of the place.During annual festivities held here during the Shivaratri, a car festival is also held. The place and surrounding hillocks are also known for ever green scenic forest.
