"This is one of the best trekks which I have covered so far . Lot of amazing scenery. On the way Waterfalls . Stay might not be good and you can't expect it to be good as it is in remote area. But can increase number of washrooms though. "

It was my first trekking and it was just amazing, Drizzling monsoon, Greenish hills, Amazing views. When to visit, I would suggest any time between june to november, You wont get tired much in these periods coz whole trek sun will be blocked by amazing clouds. Also you will get better views in this time period. We had been there with our group and BMC provided a separate transportation just for us

"An experience has to be experienced and cannot be put in words. Yet I'll try. \n\nKudremukh is another world altogether. From the beautiful rain to the peacocks and barking deers to the thrill of crossing creeks to the bumpy fun jeep trail to the triumph of having a leech on your leg. It is rewarding indeed. \n\nA booking app with discounts and promises kept, a vendor with loads of experience on imparting happiness and the joy of meeting new people on my lone travel. This encompassed my world for two days on this wanderlust of a trip.\n\n The arrangements made will humble you to the point of wondering how big a world awaits you away from the hustle of living in a city and how easy it is to make an impulsive decision and pack your bags. I truly lived these two days. \n\nSuresh anna was a truly good host, courtesy of the vendor. The guides were very responsible, friendly, comforting and knew their stuff. Take this break and know what I'm talking about !"
