About Baba Budangiri
Here too you trek for some 2 hrs to reach the peak. Baba Budan giri, or Rajendra Hill, is a rich reservoir of iron ore, and that lends a distinctive shade to the mountain. There are not many trees on this hill. It is mainly made up of grass and shrubs, giving it an aura of being endless in space and time. The wind atop the hill almost makes you feel as if you are flying. The far and wide view from the peak brings a sudden closeness with the Creator. This is a place you feel completely one with nature.

This is the highest peak of Karnataka and is a part of the Babu Budhan Giri Range in the District of Chikmagalur. There is a small Shiva Temple on top of this hill and that point is the highest point of the state. The Mullayanagiri is perfect for hiking and it is higher than the Nilgiris but lower than the Himalayas. The views from top of the mountain with cool air brushing your face is a very nice feeling and worth all the difficulty you will face to climb the mountain.
The road got smaller and muddier as time passed until we got to the point where the road wasn't wide enough for two cars to pass each other. We even got stuck at some point when a small van from the opposite side wanted to pass by. Finally, we stopped and parked the car literally at the cliff of the hill. A foot more to the left and the car would have gone over the hill.
