  • Trip introduction

    The trek to Kumara Parvatha is one of the most challenging treks in South India, and is best suited for experienced trekkers. On this trek, you will trek through the dense forest up to the Kumara Parvatha and also trek to the Mallalli Waterfalls. The trail takes you through lush greenery of the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary where you will get to explore the rich biodiversity of the forest. You will also spend a night a homestay where you will be treated with food of local cuisine.

    Destination

    Kumara Parvatha is the second highest peak in Coorg and the fourth highest peak in Karnataka, located at an altitude of 5616 feet above sea level. It is located in the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary which is home to rich biodiversity, including wild animals like tigers and elephants. If you are lucky, then you might spot one of them out in the open.

    The prominent snout peak and the steep ascent make this a tough trek, and the trail goes through a dense forest where it is easy to get lost. Hence, the traveller is advised not to stray from the group.

    Destination highlights

    • Explore the dense forests of the Pushpagirir Wildlife Sanctuary.
    • Visit the sparkling waterfall of Mallalli.
    • Trek to the Kumara Parvatha and get a majestic view of the Pushpagiri Wildlife.
    • Summit the second highest peak of Coorg.
