Destination Info: Kudremukha is one of the most famous trekking destinations in Western Ghats of South India. The place derives its name from the shape of the hill, which resembles the face of a horse, or as it is depicted in the local language – Kudre Mukha horse face. The Kudremukha range falls in the Chikkamagalur district, with dense forests that are evergreen owing to the high rainfall in the area. The Kudremukha National Park falls on the ridge of the Western Ghats and is rich in wildlife. It is known for its biodiversity and is one of the 34 hot spots picked by UNESCO for ecological conservation. Kudremukha Wildlife Sanctuary Park is spread over an area of about 600 sq. km and at an altitude of 1,894 m above sea level. The region is full of lush green forests interspersed with rivers, grassy slopes, rare orchids Seethale, caves, ruins. The park possesses rich flora and fauna mostly evergreen and semi-evergreen forests with shola-grassland habitat at elevations of 1400 meters above sea level. Though these hills are accessible throughout the year, the best time for trekking is from October to May, after the rains, when the hillside is lushly covered in verdant greenery and the mountain streams are flowing in full spate. The Shola grasslands help in feeding the major rivers with perennial mountain streams emptying into them. There are many established trekking and hiking trails in these mountains as the British had declared this area as a Reserved Forest in 1916, and it has been popular ever since for trekking.
