The Kundadri Peak is located 80 km from Shimoga and around 20 km from Thirthahalli. It is known for its pristine beauty. We had a great time at this trek. I so suggest this to all my friends already. I had a great trek in short. It was one of the best treks we had. I surely love this and would like to do it again sometime. Only that this place is far from my city and the travel expenses are huge.
Chandraketu Bandopadhyay Kodachadri Trek with Kayaking
My brother was visiting this summer and so we all decided to try this amazing trek. We were 7 members for the trip and it was an amazing one. Everything was very well organized right from your pickup to your stay. We also enjoyed some delicious meals before heading out for trekking. We trek to the Hidlumane Waterfall which was mesmerising. And our accommodation was also very good. The rooms are very clean as well. We had a great adventure while trekking and kayaking.
It was a great experience for all of us. We were 4 friends who went on this outing. It’s an amazing package I should say. We enjoyed a lot while hiking and kayaking. The scenery was adding more romance to this soulful experience. I would definitely suggest this package to my friends.
I was visiting my friend in Bangalore when he came up with the idea of camping. While searching I came up with this package which was the best for our weekend. It was a beautiful home stay and the rooms were very well furnished. While trekking we pass the thick forest. It was wonderful to trek through this region with the birds chirping and exploring various wild flowers. Next day we went for Kayaking which was another great experience for us. The peaceful environment made it all more amazing for us. Great experience.
I was planning to take a break away after a long tiring week and was glad I decided to book this package. Booking was done in an instant and everything was arranged for us. We reached Kodachadri in the morning. Rooms were very clean and cosy. We started trekking and cross the forest and the Hidlumane Waterfall. But the best part of the whole adventure was Kayaking. It was an amazing trip.

Normally we go for clubbing for New year but this year we decide to do something offbeat so we chose to go for this trek to Kodachadri Peak, it was such an amazing trekking experience, the panoramic views, the beautiful waterfalls overall it was an overwhelming experience, We even had a new year party at the campsite with DJ and everything and the party was so lit.
What an amazing party it was. We spent the new year 2018 on the banks of the Tunga River. It was so much fun. I had great time with my family and friends. Every wildlife enthusiast or trekker should definitely visit! Thanks thrillophilia for this wonderful tour.

I traveled to Agumbe with the group last November. Koodlu falls was still closed because of heavy rainfall before that but we got the stunning views of Onake Abbi falls. Found a big snake at Agumbe wild forest research station possibly a cobra. Also saw Pit Viper on our trek into jungle. It was quite an adventure and staying in the tents was an experience in itself. The food was delicious and our group had fun before the campfire. All in all, it was one weekend I won't forget for long time. The guide was very entertaining too with all his stories (mostly cooked up). Organizers were very helpful and always with us. It was my first time to live & experience the jungle and i can tell you it's worth every penny.
"It was awesome experience for us to be a part of this amazing trekking as we had lots of fun and enjoyed it to fullest. everything was well planned by the organiser and we did not had any issue during the trip. We also went to Murudeshwar and Jog falls which was not included in package. Thanks to Escape2Explore as they supported us for these extra activities. Overall it was a wonderful experience for me and my group."
It was a good experience all together. The booking was hassle free and everything was smooth and easy. The trekking was a bit difficult at times as we had to climb up. We also had a wonderful guide all through our trekking. Good for groups.
