Difficulty level: Moderate
Trek Distance: 22 KM (To and Fro)

Kudremukh known as the Switzerland of Karnataka is around 358 km away from Bangalore. The trek lies in Chikmagalur overlooking the Someshwara wildlife sanctuary. 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. 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 an ideal place for trekking and an overnight journey from Bangalore makes it the most convenient destination for weekend getaways. Natural grasslands and dense Shoal forests make the greenery of these undulating hills eye-catching.

Please Note: The Forest Permission has changed for this trek. Only 50 Participants are allowed in the mountain range in a Day. Although we try our best to gain permission, sometimes it happens that we do not get permission from the forest department. The decision of acceptance and rejection from DF (Department of Forest) happens at the start point check post of the trek based on the count. If in case we do not reach the check post in time to gain permission, naturewalkers would arrange another beautiful trek like Kurinjal or Bavikonda from the same region. We do not wish to change our plan at any cost but considering DF we do not own any control over the national park region.

Day 0:

Leave from Bangalore late evening. We request you to have some light food before traveling. 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 kudremukh is Kalasa, we will be passing through Hassan road to Bellur to Kalasa 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).

p1

The base camp at homestay gives a panoramic view of various peaks of kudremukh. The cold breeze of the Mullodi Hills ignites a joyful experience and prepares you for a wonderful trek.

p2

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.

p3

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.

p4

Listening to water flowing, birds flittering and the 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. Kudremukh Mountain is visible throughout the trek guiding your destination and inspiring with its beauty.

p5

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

p6

After spending some quality time at the peak, we would start descending through the same path to the homestay for a much-awaited Campfire and hot dinner. The homestay provides both veg and non-veg food for dinner.

p7

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

Day 2:

Next day, will go to a small waterfall near the homestay.

p8

Spend some time in the water get freshen up, have breakfast and 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.
