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.

Kodachadri Trek : This trek falls in the Shivamoga region of Karnataka. This trek is of 14km and the highlight of this trek is the ungarded waterfall which make the place unique for trekkers and travelers from Bangalore. its said the Peak was a meditating ground for Shri Shankaracharya and so does the small temple refers too.
Left from Bangalore on Friday night.

We reached the peak in sometime which had a temple. We saw the guy going past the temple to a point where blogs mentioned that Arabian Sea would be visible. But we lost the sight of him and returned back to the temple point and had our lunch. The usual bread and cheese along with Tea, as there was a tea shop there.
