We stared from Manipal around 4am on our bicycles . Road to Kudremukh is beautiful, it's rolling up and down , perfect for cycling .Gate to National parks opens at 6am and you can find patrolling vehicle now and then , aslo gate is closed by evening. Early morning scene is really beautiful , from the mountains to river and greenery all around . It is one of the best place for trekking , cycling , touring. It is also the biodiversity hotspot in western ghat range . Kudremukh is appx 80km from manipal . You can find hanging bridge and beautiful tea garden . This place is amazing for a trip . Must visit .
