Kodachadri is certainly one of the most beautiful trekking trails, one fact that I realized after spending 10 years in Karnataka. Beautiful place, loved the trekking and the entire region is so calm that it automatically de-stresses you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This trek is challenging, no doubt but one thing for sure once you start trekking you will be so engrossed in the accompanying natural beauty that you would just not wish to give up. Amazing experience, all of my friends are ardent trekkers and this was a considerable easy trek for them but considering my first time in trek I must say I did gave up at some point or the other but man! this place is awesome. Loved the entire trekking experience.
