This mountain in the Shivamoga Region is one of the most spoken about treks of Karnataka. There are two temples of the Mookambika Devi and the Adi Shankara Temple on top of the peak. These temples are both covered in between dense and misty forests and this is also an adventure when you visit these. There are two routes that you can choose from while trekking here- One is the Karekatte and the other is the Marekuttaka. The views and beauty around is wonderful and it is like a nature trail cum adventure trip here.
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.
This is the central landmark of the city of ruins and also known as the Matunga Hills. The peak of this hill is a place from where you can enjoy awesome views of sunset and sunrise and also some of the most spectacular views of the city. On the southern part down the hills is the Tungabhadra River and on top is the famous Veerbhadra Temple. This temple is dedicated to one incarnation of Lord Shiva known as Veerbhadra. On another side of the hills is the Achutya Raya Temple and last but not the least is the Hampi Bazar. This old market is the starting point of people who come for trekking here.
This beautiful mountain range located in the district of chikmaglur and at an elevation of 1872m should be on top of a must trek list of every avid adventure lover this season. Two reasons, one because it's challenging and two because the natural flora brightens up from various view points. To all the adventure lovers out there, believe me U've got to go there during this season (monsoon).<br /><br />Our one day trek was organised by decathlon lead by Sharath and his team who were the best and the most experienced kind of people. <br />We started our journey towards kudremukh from Bangalore at night around 10 by bus and within 7-8 hours we reached the home stay.
We reached at the place by 5:00 in the morning but were waiting for the morning light to come so we halted for a while near a temple which is considered as landmark for Anathagiri hills. After 30 mins we started to the view point which can be reached if we take the road starting opposite to Temple.Within a minute we could experience a lot of greenary all around us. It took at least 10 min of complete off roading for us to reach the view point.
