Trek to Kodachadri
₹ 3,250
About Trip :Located in the scenic western ghats, Kodachadri (1343m) in Shimoga is one of the better known trekking destinations in Karnataka. We start from Bangalore on Friday night and reach Kattinahole, at the base of Kodachadri between 5 and 6 AM on saturday morning. At about 8 AM after freshening up, and a quick breakfast at our homestay, we will proceed to the trailhead, a quarter kilometer drive away. A quick introduction and briefing and then we enter the Jeep trail that ferries pilgrims to the temple up on the mountain. About a kilometer and a half later we deviate off the jeep trail and cross a stream to enter into the jungle (Expect leeches in the monsoon and post-monsoon seasons). The trails from here on are not very clear and it is easy to lose our way if we don't remain in one group. This stretch is about 2 kilometers long and passes through thick jungle. The trail eventually opens out to an open field with a couple of huts and agricultural land (the last signs of civilization until we hit the peak). We go past this village dwelling and re-enter the jungle to hear the sounds of the Hidlumane falls. This trail is extremely slippery with sharp rock and winds upwards towards the waterfall. Twenty minutes of scrambling and stumbling up the path and you are at the falls. After a refreshing dip in the falls, we rejoin the jungle trail to the right. The trail here on is extremely steep (60 degrees at certain points) and passes through thick rainforest. You will be climbing up rocks and branches at certain parts until half an hour later the trail leads out to the hilly grasslands of Kodachadri. Here on, the trail overlooks panoramic views and winds up and over a couple of hills. About 45 minutes later, the trail merges with the jeep trail. We regroup here and proceed to Kodachadri peak which is a 5 minute walk away from there. We will rest and have our packed lunch on the peak, after which we start heading back to the base. Being easier on the knees and easy to navigate when we begin losing light in the evening, the Jeep trail is ideal for reaching back to the base. A 3 hour hike along the trail and we are back to the base camp for a well deserved dinner and sleep. We freshen-up, have breakfast and leave our base-camp by 8 AM and proceed to the Bidanur fort built by Shivappa Naik 30 kilometers away. The fort belonged to the Keladi dynasty of 17th century and gives a complete view of the landscape in all directions. We will spend an hour here and then proceed towards Bangalore only stopping for lunch (self-sponsored) at Shimoga. With its beautiful views and evergreen jungle trails, Shimoga makes for a great introductory western-ghat trek.

Trek to Kumara Parvata
₹ 3,075
About Trip : If you aren’t very new to the world of trekking then you would have heard the name Kumara Parvata being mentioned often. Considered among the toughest treks in South India, It is a perfect mix of physical challenge and natural beauty of the Pushpagiri Wildlife sanctuary. We start from Bangalore on Friday night and reach Subramanya between 5 and 6 AM on saturday morning. At about 7.30 AM after freshening up, and a quick breakfast, we will proceed to the trailhead, a quarter kilometre long walk away from the Kukke Subramanya temple. A quick introduction and briefing and we begin the first phase of our trek to Bhattara Mane. The trail is a well trod one, and continues for a good 7 kilometers uphill, through thick jungle (Expect leeches in the monsoon and post-monsoon seasons). You know that you're nearing Bhattara mane when the jungle starts growing thinner and the incline becomes less demanding. The trail eventually opens out onto hilly grassland. On an average, this first stretch takes about 3-4 hours to cover. On reaching Bhattara mane, we will have a quick lunch, a brief rest and then we begin the second stage of the trek (Destination: The Kumara Parvatha Peak). From Bhattara mane, we rejoin the trail and proceed to the first viewpoint. A few minutes to stand in awe (and to click a few pictures) of the majesty of the mountain you are about to conquer and we hit the trail to the Forest Department to finish any formalities. After passing Viewpoint 2, the incline of the trail begins to increase gradually until it remains at a constant angle of about 45-55 degrees with hilly grassland. After about an hour, you will reach the Mantapa, an ancient black stone structure where we will have our first major respite.

Trek to Mullayanagiri
₹ 3,350
About Place: A 280 kilometer drive from Bangalore, Mullayanagiri is a peak located in Chikmagalur, Karnataka. Being the highest peak in Karnataka, it offers larger than life views and the some very interesting trails. We start from Bangalore on Friday night and reach our campsite between 5 and 6 AM on saturday morning. At about 8 AM after freshening up, and a quick breakfast, we will proceed to the trailhead, a short drive away. A quick introduction and briefing and we enter the trailhead off the ghat-road known as Sarpadhari that leads to the Mullayanagiri peak. This stretch is fairly steep (almost 60 degrees) and first passes through brush and low trees until it turns right alongside a ravine on the right. The trail can be very slippery in the monsoons. We keep climbing uphill with very brief breaks in between. The trail snakes along the side of the mountain until we reach the black cliffs of Mullayanagiri and pass through an opening between them. From here, the trail starts to relent as we pass through a small field of short flowering shrubs. Here on, we hit the last and final stretch to the Mullayanagiri peak. The incline gradually increases once again until we see the temple flag at the peak. About 15 minutes of steady plodding and we will have reached the Mullayanagiri peak. The place is extremely silent and still, almost meditative - a perfect spot for the temple to exist. After a short rest, and a visit to the temple for those that are interested, we descend the peak and head toward the Hebbe Falls. The trail goes over rolling hills, with hill grassland and stretches of shola forests on either side, all of which make for some very breathtaking scenery (the incline is quite gentle apart from a couple of very steep, risky descents). Approximately 2 hours later we reach the forest check post at Gundi where we stop for a quick lunch. A 20 minute hike downhill from here and we reach the staircase to a waterfall. After spending some time recovering and reveling in our accomplishment, we drive back to our campsite for a well deserved dinner and rest. We will wake at 6AM the next morning to freshen up, followed by breakfast. We leave the campsite for sight-seeing around and after spending about an hour or two, we will start our way back to reach Bangalore by 9 PM.

This stretch is approximately 300 meters long but will seem much more longer (just like any other final ascent.) The top is usually covered in low, moving clouds. We will spend some time at the peak to rest, have our packed lunch and enjoy the panoramic views, after which we will descend at a slow comfortable pace back to the base.A short drive later we are back at our homestay for tea and snacks, followed by dinner and a blissful night rest.
