The stretch is fairly steep (almost 60 degrees) and first passes through brush and low trees until it turns right alongside a ravine on the right. The trail can be very slippery in the monsoons. Keep climbing and then the trail starts to relent as You pass through a small field of short flowering shrubs. Here on, You hit the last and final stretch and through steady plodding you reach the Mullayanagiri peak. The peak is silent, calm, quiet and force you to be a philosopher for a while
After a short rest, and a visit to the temple for those who are interested, You descend the peak and head towards Bababudangiri peaks. The trail goes over rolling hills, with hill grassland and stretches of shola forests on either side.
Approximately 2 hours later You reach the forest check post at Gundi where You stop for the lunch.
