"Had an amazing first trek experience at Tadiandamol. The trek was very well organised along with well maintained hostel accommodation in the middle of the forest. So scenic.! Also if you're lucky you will have Mitesh Sir as your lead guide. :) A small tip avoid visiting the peak during monsoons, weird kind of insects kept biting us the whole way. "

Amazing trip and great experience. Was my first trek and a great one. Though it's good enough for beginners but very adventurous as walking through ridges is challenging and due to monsoon the path was heavily covered with thick bushes and plants. The homestay was good and food was really good. Though they serve vegetarian food but on the special request of the co-ordinators non-vegetarian dish was prepared in the dinner. The co-ordinators were amazing and they arranged trip to Dubare elephant camp and bird sanctuary though it isn't included in the itinerary. Though I was solo but the group was amazing. I had a great time and hope to visit on another trek soon. It is reasonable for the cost. Though due to rain we couldn't stay in the tents and missed the bon-fire. Just one request to the operator team - please include other places in the itinerary especially on the second day as it can be covered easily.

This is my first trekking trip and the location is apt for a new comer. The feel of both true adventure and exploring nature is well felt. I would advise travellers to pack light for the trek but carry two bottles of water if it's a sunny day. The view from the top is fantastic and during the entire trek we had a nice elevated climb which gave a nice feel of the journey. The organizer had been very good in managing the entire itenerary and also they keep good care of each traveller. I was traveling solo but during the entire journey each of us were nicely introduced. Nagarhole visit was excellent & fortunately we got to see good bunch of wild animals. The sanctuary visit should be done early in the wee hours. I would definitely plan another trek via thrillophlia. Overall, basic accommodation and good food was provided in the trek.

It was my first trekking and it was beautiful.The trek was planned and well organized. Everything thing was properly managed and the service provided was more than satisfactory, this trip was completely taken care of by Bangalore Mountaineering Club and they have done it very nicely. The food tasted was home made and it was delicious. The coordinators were very helping and supporting and every possible arrangements were made.I would like to continue my next trek with BMC again.
