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 a high mountain pass in the Kullu District and is the one closest to Delhi. This place thus, finds a part in every tourist's travel itinerary. This is also the only pass which allows any kind of vehicle and also opens every year. The Mahakali Temple on top here is also known as Jalori Maa temple and is very popular among the tourists. The pass however remains closed during the peak winter months and thus you will have to find out before planning. There are cautions to be followed when you visit this place such as driving at first gear only is compulsory. The curvy roads give the most marvelous views of the Himalayas.

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.

Shillong Peak, the most elevated point of Shillong, is found 5 km toward the south of the city and is 1961 meters which is 6,433 feet in height. Being the most astounding crest in the locale, it is frequently encompassed with mist. The top itself is not steep, but instead semi-round like that of a crown set on the level and broad top of the Shillong Hill. The crest is open by means of the Upper Shillong or Jowai Road.

This is a flat laterite rock structure which is also rated as the second longest mountain plateau in Asia. This is probably the major most attraction in Panchghani. From this vast stretch of land you get specatcular views of the surroundings and also get telescope facilities out here. There are a number of horse takers and tonga drivers who can take you on rides. The rates are a bit high so you have to do a lot of bargaining. There are also a few cave temples around and this place is also popular as a walking path as well as a picnic spot.

Tackling the steep slopes, dense jungles, unbearable heat, incessant rains, diseases, landslides and wild animals that define the Western Ghats was an ambitious endeavor. The railway track was achieved by an amalgamation of the best of engineering expertise, machinery and skilled labourers toiling under inhospitable conditions. The majority of the workforce consisted of mainly South Asians who were involved in the daunting task of digging and moving earth and rock. At the peak of its construction there were around 16000 people, hailing from Afghanistan to Ceylon, employed in the Ghats.

Day 3 started with warm up exercise and a good short jog around the place. We saw the snow-capped Himalayas with its 2nd tallest peak – Kanchenjunga standing majestically right in the centre. After some local sightseeing, we were briefed about the trek and the route post which everyone introduced themselves. And thus, we spent our last night in the pleasant weather of Darjeeling before beginning our trek on the following day. Day 4 began pretty interestingly for me, of which I may write in April of 2014. The entire batch got ready and assembled for the flag off to begin our journey. On reaching the starting point by a jeep, we were introduced to our 2 trek guides. Both of them lean, fit & unbelievably young! One of them was 23 years old and he was responsible for leading the group. Looking at their normal backpacks, we felt a little foolish to have carried such huge rucksacks. By the end of the trek, we realized it was indeed stupid to have carried more than 2 pair of clothes as that’s the maximum required for such a cold journey.

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.

Waking up on time is really easy when you are parked on a national highway.With trucks serving as our alarm’s we were up by 6.Waking up to clean and crisp mountain air was a worthy treat.We had parked in front of a tea stall the previous night and the guy was eager for us to move and vacate his spot.Our tea was ready even before we got off the car. With a warm cuppa in our tummy’s we were ready to leave much to the chaiwallah’s delight. Next stop was Shimla for some breakfast and clean toilets. We were in Shimla in no time, and stopped at the Holiday Home hotel which is a flagship hotel of Himachal tourism. The food was really good and the toilets were clean. With our tummies tight and eyes bright we started towards Narkanda. The drive to Narkanda from Shimla was splendid, the roads were smooth and the view was remarkable. The route took us through the blissful towns of Kufri and Fagu. With the clouds hanging low over the cliffs, the temperature was dropping. Lush green mountains and the clean grey roads added to the magnificence, thanks to the much anticipated drizzle. Narkanda is a small town and serves as base for a lot of people traveling to Kinnaur and Spiti. The town was bustling and people were tanking up and gathering supplies. We met a group of people from Denmark who were doing the same circuit as us on Enfields. After discussing the route and munching on some snacks we were off again. The road towards Sangla was less road and more stones, with tunnelling work in progress we were soon back on the Indian roads we are so used to. We managed to reach Wangdu dam by 9.30pm and made our way through complete darkness and muddy roads to a small town by the Sutlej called Tapri (2100m). Tapri has a few hotels and one big forest guest house. The guest house was booked and we settled for small place by the name of hotel pagmarang bar. The ‘BAR’ part played a vital role in the selection process. Rooms were basic and clean and the management was friendly. We headed to the bar and got down to business. The food was good specially the Chinese and the helpings plentiful. Snug, tipsy and well fed we finally called it a night. Accommodation for the night: Hotel Pagramang Bar. Room rent per night ~700 INR Distance covered: 200km Tip of the day: Try not to drive after sundown unless you are Batman
