Another highlight of the trek to Kudremukh, you'll visit the Elniru waterfalls, rumoured to flow down mountain cliffs with sweet, coconut-flavoured water.

    Destination

    The second highest mountain peak in Karnataka at an altitude of over 6,200 feet, the Kudremukh mountain is covered with an ecosystem of shola forests, complete with monsoon-fed river streams and waterfalls.

    The peak is located inside the protected forests of the Kudremukh National Park, dedicated to limiting the environmental impact of visitors over the mountain.
