 Plan The Unplanned presents Makalidurga !!

Makalidurga is a trek to one of the most enchanting places as this hill has twinkling skies, a rich history and a railway line running through the lush green grasses of the hill. Makalidurga is located only 60 kilometres away from Bangalore and 10 kilometres away from the town of Doddaballapur town. It because of this that a number of people, ranging from travel junkies to adventurers to nature lovers, make their way to this stunning hill every weekend.

Makalidurga hill stands above the rest of the world at a height of 4430 feet and has a fort located at the top of its peak. The bottom of the hill is surrounded by a lake that is in the shape of the continent of South America, while a train runs through the lower half of the hills. Everything in the middle is lush green grass and stunning views of nature all around.

Kudremukh Trek (3rd Aug - 5th Aug)I have been planning for the Kudremukh Trek for a long time. But was very hesitant to do it on my own. There is a limited (50 person) entry for the trek to the Kudremukh and I was not sure about the entry, gates and entry free. Online portals dont have specifics of the details, and the information didnt seem updated. After doing some research, I came across Plan the Unplanned (PTU), and they seemed to be the most reliable. I heard great review from friends and colleagues, so I went ahead and booked Kudremukh Trek for the weekend of 3rd - 5th August. It was a wonderful trip, to say the least. The planning and execution were absolutely on point, and Plan the Unplanned (PTU) exceeded my expectations. Below are some highlights: Very good transportation facility (AC Bus) Stay was arranged at Bella Homestay. Good clean dorm room. Separate rooms for boys and girls. We were 11 guys staying in room. But it was still decently comfortable. Great food at the homestay. Aunty makes some amazing Idllis and Tomato rice :D Permits were taken care before reaching the entry point of the trek, avoiding last minute hassles. (Such a relief) It was relatively easy for experienced hikers but moderate for newbies. But definitely one of the most scenic treks with lots of greenery and gushing water streams on the way. And windows XP theme hills ;) The fellow trekkers were good. Very motivated and great sport. Last but not the least the Trek Leader (Adith, Megha, Deepika, Yash) were awesome. They are very engaging and responsible. Kudremukh trekkers were mostly in contact with Adith & Megha. And they did an awesome job of coordination and I highly recommend them. Will plan my next trip with Plan the Unplanned (PTU) soon. - by Tapash for Kudremukh Monsoon Trek | Plan The Unplanned organized by Plan the Unplanned .
