1 out of 45 attractions in Chikamagalur


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.

Our first destination was Mullayanigri, the highest peak of Karnataka. Guys, the roads again were so smooth , and so swift, like roads made for utmost pleasure with the light drizzling rain. WOW. We had to take jeep in the last patch toward the peak as private cars couldn't be taken up there. We were welcomed by the clouds . Once we reached above the peak it was so chilly , and everything was covered with clouds. It looked phenomenal. We ate garam garam MAGGI with that chilly weather. Guys, it was just Amazing..

Collectively, these peaks are known as the Chandradrona Mountain Range as they naturally form the shape of a crescent moon.
