Welcome to one of the toughest and challenging treks in South India, where the climb will leave you wanting for breathes, and the scenery might just take your breath away. Kumara Partha's peak is nearly 1712 m above the sea level. Otherwise known as Pushpagiri, is the second highest peak in Coorg. It is located in the Somwarpet Taluk, 20 kms from Somwarpet in the northern part of Kodagu district on the outskirt between Dakshina Kannada and Kodagu districts. The nearly 6-7 km (one side) trek to Kumara Parvatha is not a child's play, but the feeling after summiting the peak is one of a kind. The trail is completely covered by the green meadows, and forest nearby is rich in flora and fauna. The enchanting peak is divine and sure to leave an impression.

Day 0: This overnight journey to Kumara Parvatha base begins from Bangalore on Friday.

Day 1: Reach Homestay, freshen up and have some breakfast, and start the trek with packed lunch. The trek to Kumara Parvatha takes you through the lush green forests and meadows, with steep pathway. A close work between body and mind is required. Encounter several water streams, adding a bit of blue to the greenery around. Monsoons can be really chaotic because of leeches. As you reach the Pushpagiri peak, the scenery will blow your mind. Time to unleash the photographer in you and capture some smiles. Then head to Shesha Parvatha, this being a difficult trail, entirely because of the steepness, is quite alluring. Descend after exploring and head back to the Homestay to spoil yourself with some scrumptious local cuisine. Unwind by the campfire and have the most tranquil sleep (believe us).

Day 2: Wake up early to leave for Mallalli falls, explore the place and come back to home stay for breakfast. Pack up and prepare to leave for Bangalore and take with you a tale definitely worth sharing.

We went for a day trek through Escape2explore. Starting from Bangalore at around 6:30am, we reached Ramanagara base at 8:30am. We were 6 people and were the only ones for the day trek that day. They offered breakfast where people from the previous night's trek were also present. Breakfast included Idli Sambhar, pakoras and bread omelette with tea. It was normal. After the breakfast, we started with rappelling. We had a couple of guys from their side to help us do it and it was definitely worth an experience. We had great fun and had an amazing start to the outing.

After rappelling, we started with the trek. One guy from their side took us through the way. The cool weather with a slight drizzle made the trekking experience wonderful. Clicking pictures in the meanwhile, we took around an hour to reach the top. It started raining at the top adding cherry to the cake. After spending some time, we started descending. It became a bit slippery due to the rain but it was not difficult to keep your feet firmly and get down.

After the trek, we got back to the base at around 2pm to have lunch. They asked our choice and we opted for vegetarian food. We were famishing till that time and the food was good. It was home-made food having Aloo sabzi, dry cabbage vegetable, paratha, rice, pulao and curd rice. They offered some fruits as well. Post lunch, we went for shooting for some time.

Some of us were interested to go for Go Karting and ATV. There was a Play zone nearby and their guy himself took us there. It was not included in the package though and we paid separately there. It was equally good to add to our fun. We then proceeded to the last thing - Kayaking. The guy properly instructed us about how to do it. The water was very dirty though due to rains. Nevertheless, we went for it and it was fun to kayak through.

In the evening, we had tea and returned back to Bangalore around 7:30pm. We would have reached earlier had we not gone for Go Karting. But it was worth our time.

Overall, it was a day well spent and it felt like doing so many things in one day. They handled everything professionally and we had a great day out. :)
