The place was awesome, it was my first trekking. when we were climbing every one of us felt lot of pain. But once we reached the top, the nature took our pain away completely. Highly recommended for all nature lovers

Liked: The exhilarating view from the view point. Disliked: The place from where you view is a concrete building that does not suit the place. Missed: Did not trek to the top of the peak. Readers, if you have it in you, I recommend you trek to the top to make the most out of your trip to Chembra peak.... More

Its a short and strenuous hike. We did this at peak monsoon (aug 1st week) and it was spectacular with lots of waterfalls, short drizzle, mist and thick green forest/hills. Currently you can hike only up to the heart lake. How to reach: Reach Meppadi (GPS: 11.554694, 76.130800) and park your vehicle in the main road. I parked it near... More

The view at top is amazing. Only 3 kms trek (one side). rest 3 kms is closed due to wild elephants as they say. so you reach only heart shaped lake not up till chembra peak. but view from there is awesome.At meppadi you have to get a govt guide for 500 INR.

The official timing for trekking is from 7.00 AM to 2.00 PM where they won't allow to trek after 2. We planned to start the trip by 8.00 but lazily we started at 9.30 AM. We need to complete some formalities with the forest office before entering the peak. The permit come for a price. Trekking charges for a group... More

Our experience of the chembra peak trek was astonishing.The trek is quite difficult if you are not used to trekking but it is definitely worthwhile. I just didn't stop clicking as each step towards the peak offered a different view and I wanted a picture of every moment spent there. The heart shaped lake on the top is said to... More
