Kudremukh in Kannada means 'horse-face' and refers to an impressive scenic sight of a side of the mountain that looks similar to the face of a horse. It is a small village located at a distance of 96 km from the district of Chikmagalur and about 335 km from Bangalore of Karnataka. Nestled in the Western Ghats, the forest is spread over an area of 600 sq km at an altitude of 1,894 m above sea level.

It is ideal place for trekking and an overnight journey from Bangalore makes it most convenient destination for weekend getaways. Natural grasslands and dense Shoal forests makes the greenery of these undulating hills eye-catching.

Itinerary

Itinerary

Start from Bangalore reach Balgal jeep ride to Mullodi hills homestay fresh-up and breakfast at homestay start the trek reach top have packed lunch back to homestay camp fire.

Next day start from homestay - Hanumana Gundi Waterfalls back to Bangalore.

Day 0

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

Day 1

The nearest town to kudhremukh is Kalasa, we will be passing through Hassan road to Belur to Kasala town and from there to Balgal. Balgal is a small place at the base of Mullodi Hills which is the base of Kudremukh. From Balgal we would be taking a jeep ride to Homestay in Mullodi Hills which is about 6 km from Balgal (base). The base camp at homestay give a panaromic view of various peaks of kudhremukh. The cold breeze of the Mullodi Hills ignites a joyful experience and prepares you for a wonderful trek.

After Fresh-up and Breakfast we would embark on our journey to Kudremukh peak. On Course we would pass through about 8-9 water streams, 3-4 jungles and several peaks.

Although there are several water streams in between the trails. We would request you to carry an extra empty bottle which you can fill up to keep yourself hydrated through the trek.

Listening to water flowing, birds flittering and cold breeze makes you closer to nature and motivates you to walk all through the mountains and to the peak. The horse faced i.e. kudhremukh mountain is visible throughout the trek guiding your destination and inspiring with its beauty.

A steep inclination on the Zig-Zag trail connects you to the last trail that guides you to the peak.

After spending some quality time at the peak, we would start descending through the same path to homestay for a much awaited campfire, snacks and hot dinner. The homestay also provide non-veg food for dinner if you like.

You could also take bath, if you want as hot water is available at homestay.

Next day

After breakfast we would spend the early morning time at the Somavati River and water fall passing beside the home stay. With packed lunch we would start our journey to Hanumana Gundi Waterfalls. Spend some quality time 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!
