  • Trip introduction

    Climb up to an altitude of 4,400 feet to the peak of Kodachadri, visit the roaring waterfalls of Hidlumane and explore the centuries-old Nagara Fort. On this 3-day trek to Kodachadri, you'll travel deep into a dense forest, a thick jungle that almost resembles the Amazonian rainforest, and catch spectacular sunset views of a crimson sun drowning in the Arabian Sea. En route, you'll trek to the Hidlumane waterfalls and attempt to climb over the waterfall over slippery rocks, clutching rugged tree roots over an almost vertical trail. Before you return to Bangalore, you'll also explore the ramparts and fortifications of the 18th century fort of Nagara.

    Destination

    The tenth highest peak of Karnataka, the Kodachadri is a national heritage site, nestled in the protected forests of the Mookambika Wildlife Sanctuary. A tropical paradise, especially during the months of monsoon, the landscape of Kodachadri attracts trekking enthusiasts from all over the state. Since the area receives some of the heaviest rainfall in the south, the trail to the peak of Kodachadri is surrounded by overgrown forests and flowing river streams.

    • Trek to the Kodachadri and Hidlumane waterfalls.
