Itinerary

Itinerary

Start from Bangalore reach Kodachadri Base Fresh up and breakfast at homestay trek from homestay to hidlumane falls reach Peak sun set view-point Jeep ride back to homestay Dinner & Campfire 

Next day travel to Nagara fort back to Bangalore.

Day 0

We would be leaving from Bangalore at late evening. We request you to have some light food before travelling. This trip would be an overnight journey to Kodachadri Home stay in which we would have an informal introduction and have fun.

Day 1

Nitturu is a small village at the base of Kodachadri hill which is about 394 kms away from Bangalore. The trek is considered to be moderate for beginners. And a night journey from Bangalore makes is more convenient for trekker to explore this place and return back to Bangalore. 

The trek contains everything from forest, waterfall, green meadows, farm, rocky path and peaks. The Kodachadri peak is popular for its sunrise and sunset. As we are starting our trek in the morning we would be able to witness the sun set from the peak.

After fresh-up and hot breakfast we would start our trek. The jungle route of the trek is little ahead from the homestay on the jeep road. The jeep road is straight up to the peak. After taking a right into the jungle we would trek till the Hidlumane waterfall.

On the route of Hidlumane waterfall, we would be crossing through a small hut where you can refresh yourself with fresh butter milk. All worries fade away when cold water of fall touches your body. No other wonderful event would excite you there then adding a nature shower into your travelogue. 

The trail get a bit steep after the waterfall through the dense forest of Kodachadri.

A steep inclined walk to the peak and the sunset from the peak would definitely remind you that nothing comes for free in this world. If the Nature gives you a stunning view of sunset then it would also take some of your sweat as payback. 

After spending a quality time at the peak with packed lunch. We would hold our time at the peak for the sunset. The view of sunset from the peak would hold all your clocks and alarm and remind you that life and nature combining makes a perfect couple.

We would descent to homestay from peak in a jeep ride for a much awaited hot dinner and of course camp fire. 

Day 2

Next day, after breakfast we would hop on our bus to Nagara Fort. Spend some time at the fort and then back to Bangalore.

Agumbe Rainforest Ecology – Trek & Camping 14 - 17 Jun 2018.

Although this was our first trek with Nature Walkers, it didn’t feel like that from the very first minute we met Shane our outdoor leader and then one by one the group we were going with. Expectation I set for this trip was to relax, have some fresh air, go far away from the polluted busy environment and de-stress. I must admit I got much more than my expectations. Forest walks, a dip in a clear flowing stream of water (twice actually), a small trek to a peak where we had scenic view of nature and greenery, first aid for snake bite session, session on King Cobra, wildlife photography, night walks, butterflies, camping in tents, tasty home cooked meals. We got a chance to be interacting with the Kalinga Center (KCRE) team (Gowrishankar, Prashant and Priyanka). They shared their experiences with rescuing king Cobras, we watched an amazing documentary featuring their rescue operations. This interaction was very informative and we learnt a lot about wildlife and their ecology. We even got a chance to have a quick stop at Sringeri temple, on our way back to Bangalore.

Away from network, it was great to disconnect from the virtual world and connect with nature.

Nature walkers have an amazing zeal that is contagious. Their passion to make every experience into a memorable one is evident in their actions and their interactions. Shane made sure all of us were always enjoying, having fun, kept us engaged and kept motivating me specially during the trek, which was a piece of cake for everyone else, including my 11-year-old daughter.

Thanks to Hemant and Amrita for constantly being in touch with their recommendations and help with planning this trip. Thanks to everyone on the trip with us, specially our awesome DJ Srikanth who also entertained us with his energetic dance, our illusionist Rahul who presented jaw dropping tricks during the trip, and everyone else contributing their share of fun Satish, Sanil, Gopalan, Shane, Shreya, Lalitha, thanks for making this a wonderful experience.

If you are looking for having a fun weekend, you can blindly pick any trip with Nature Walkers and I can guarantee, you won’t be disappointed. This is the testimonial I received from every repeat trekker on our trip. I am definitely motivated to tick off every trip they organize. Keep going Nature Walkers, looking forward to a lot of fun.

I must admit that I already miss the wonderful trip we had welcoming this new year. We were informed that this trip would be more to chill than to trek and you were absolutely right Mr. Hemant.

As soon as we reached Gokarna beach we left no time in taking a dip in the sea. Then we had a long walk on the beach and a small trek to reach Yana waterfalls. It was fun diving and swimming in the fresh cold waters.

We were back to the beach to witness a beautiful sunset and the view was mesmerizing and to top it off we played beach football in this stunning setting.

We missed the rain in rain dance but danced our hearts out for more than 3 hours!!

We welcomed the new year with colorful sky lanterns and fireworks. The interesting part was that we were enjoying every moment with some amazing people who had become good friends in no time!

On our way back, we played Mafia with our huge team of around 30 people and Asav was a cunning mafia rallying till the end fooling all the poor villagers.

Lastly, I would like to thank Hemant, Anupama and Manoj for organizing this amazing trip and I should mention that I have seen very few people with Hemant’s level of patience. Also, made some wonderful friends in Nikhil, Harsh, Rupali, Tanwi, Anupama, Manish and Hemant.

I have a feeling that the best day of the year is already done with this trip, but I look forward to my next trip with NatureWalkers which is going to take fun quotient to the next level and have some peaceful time off from our hectic job schedule.

PS: I had to wait till weekend to write this review as I had to dive directly into work after this awesome trip. Also, if it wasn’t for my friend Asav I wouldn’t have made this super awesome trip.

I have always been a beach person and when you get the perfect combo of beach and trekking, nothing can be better than that. Me and my friend were part of the "Gokarna Beach Trek - 2 Day Package". We both can unanimously say that this was by far one of our best new year celebrations.

We went with an open mind and was sure to meet quite a few interesting people. Rest assured the plan of staying in tents under the starry night sky. Well! it did turn out as we expected. We met some amazing people, who within a span of 48 hours had become good friends. From strangers to friends; the journey was quick and absolutely amazing.

How could I not mention about the outdoor leaders! Hemant, Anupama, Pawan, and Manoj, they were brilliant with their work. Guiding us cautiously through the entire trip and then partying hard with us during the New Year get together. They gelled along so well with all of us.

So here are my takeaways from the trip:

- traveling on budget can be a lot of fun

- you get to meet more people than you would while travelling alone

- you get the security of traveling in a group; trust me when I say travelling in a group is the best part of the journey

- you get good recommendations on local cuisine

- you have a face off with the part of you that seem to be hiding for years; we danced our way back to Bangalore, for almost 2 to 3 hours at a stretch; not sure when was the last time I did so in such a big group

Cheers to Nature Walkers! Way to go guys. You guys are doing a brilliant job. Looking forward to be a part of a new trip soon.

P.S. With the break of dawn on 1st January, we found a messy beach right in front of our eyes. Trashes from the last night's party; paper lanterns, beer bottles and cans, water bottles, and some more stuffs we littered here and there. As proud Nature Walkers, we worked as a team to remove all the trash and the make the beach look clean, in no time. The new year did start on a good note for all of us!
