2 out of 18 attractions in Shimoga


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.

Reached Kodachadri early in the morning, arrangements for jeep ride were made in between had a fresh up at the stream very next to jeep stand and started our journey to peak of Kodachadri, our journey was most adventurous through the hilly rocky terrain with hairpin bends thanks to Mahindra for making such machines which can easily roll over obstacles and reach destiny once we reach the destination of 8 odd kilometres we should further trek the remaining part of hill after which we can see Peeta of Shri Shankaracharya while on our way of trek we can have photo shoot too.After the trek once we reach back to jeep stand we further proceeded towards Kollur and then towards to Udupi (land of Krishna) as we had time to visit we went of to the St.Marry's Island where we had some time to chill and get one more photo session we were back on Udupi around 6pm and then further proceeded to visit Udupi Sri Krishna Temple and back to our hotel room and end the busy day.
