It's the best and a little difficult treks of South India, nevertheless you get to see greenery all around and a tremendous view when you complete the trek. You have lot of camps organised to Kumara Parvatha. One should be part of the trek and reach the peak at least once.

One can understand his limitations with this trek. It is almost 13 Km trek where you can see, hillocks, valleys, forests, butterflies etc. At the top of Kumara Parvatha, you can have a beautiful sun rise and sun set. Preparation for the trek is a must. Food and water needs to be carried. Even though there are two water sources... More

But the view we get is one of awe and wonder. Its as if we are standing in above clouds and the chilling winds makes it... More

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

Though it's considered one of the toughest treks in South India, all the pain vanishes into oblivion once you reach the top. The trek became all the way to more exciting as it was raining heavily and we were shivering at some point or the other. However, we moved ahead.The trip challenges both physical and mental endurance but you are... More
