Not for nothing they say it is the toughest trek in Karnataka. Well it is. And when you have the rains to play spoiler and the leeches to bug you every meter ahead it just becomes all the more tough. But then when you are prepared for worse you just lunge forward with nothing-gonna-bring-me-down attitude. There is a 5 km... More

This is heaven on earth. The peak can be reached from somwarpet or kukke subramanya. 1. Trek from kukke is very stressful. One has to trek 14 kms to reach peak. First 7 kms is through jungle and is very steep which leads to "Bhatra Mane" where one can have lunch. One can reach kallu mantapa which is about 2... More
