Treks Beyond 150 Kms from Bangalore
There are so many challenging treks in Karnataka that you can consider. While many exist, some are better for corporate outings. Thrillophilia recommends the following 5 treks:
1. Tadayandamol Trek
Better to be experienced during early winter, this trek will take you at over 1700 meters above sea level. You can go to the Coorg peak, which is quite exciting but only recommended for seasoned trekkers. You can reach the hill bottom by car/jeep but the rest is all up for trekking and takes 5-7 hours to complete the trek.
2. Chikmagalur Trek
From the moment you wake up early in the morning to start the trek, you will be left astonished by the view. You will surely appreciate the Bhadra Wildlife Reserve and many other locations will be incredible.
3. Sakleshpur Trek
You might want to experience the Green Route from Sakleshpur to Subramanya Road Station. You will go through the Western Ghats and trekking is recommended after monsoon season. October is when we arrange most treks.
4. Agumbe Trek
Agumbe is located in Shimoga District. The trek that you will go on is a little tough because of heavy rainfall but the experience is unique. On your trek you will get to pass through a World Heritage site and enjoy incredible landscapes.
5. Kodachadri Trek
is a mountain peak that is well covered with dense forests. Since it is a little tough to trek through a really dense forest, we will have to train you but you will be happy to learn that this is a very quick process.
