The Kodachadri trail has trees along the path and you can see villages all along the route. The Kodachadri trek via Hidlumane Falls will lead through dense jungle while we approach the Falls. The trail will have lush green vegetation with water sources. The trail will get humid as we enter the forests and leaches will be encountered. The participants need to be careful for this part. The trek will open to a farm and a meadow and delicious food can be found here especially butter milk and other milk based beverages.

We will start from the backyard of the farm and then trek towards the Hidlumane Falls. The trail will be covered at an easy pace crossing several streams. The trail becomes steep with rocky terrain and then it will lead for the Hidlumane Falls.

The Kodachadri peak is around 2 km from the Sri Mookambika Devi Temple and the trail will lead to two different areas. One will lead to the Ganesha Guha temple and the other straight trail leads to the Kodachadri Peak. The drop on the left of the trekking trail for the last leg keeps the adrenaline high.

An ideal location for meditation as legend says the presence of Adi Shankaracharya.The temple of Mookambika in Kollar can be seen from a cave known as Chitramoola visible from the path near the peak.

GREAT TRIP :)

We really had a nice time at the trip... it was fun and exciting...
We had a great guide full of life who motivated and helped us complete the trek..Kayaking in the backwaters of sharavati was an joyful experience.... It was an awesome group to hang out with... we made good friends out there. The tents were quite comfortable and the food provided at the homestay was simple and good...The night ended perfectly with the bonfire and masti... sleeping in the tents and gazing at the stars gave a completeness to the purpose of this trip....Thank you krishna , kavitha for making this happen and most importantly triphippe for existing... :)
