Trek to Kodachadri is one of the best experiences in my life. Killer view, challenging terrain and amazing trails. The sunset and hidlumane waterfalls are to die for. Our trek was organised well and I am really thankful to Jay Prakash and Rahil ( our trek leads as well) for the constant help, for keeping us interactive, providing us a decent accommodation and travel and making this trek a safe and a memorable one. You guys are doing a great job! Totally worth the money and I did get a huge family out of this trek for free!

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.

Wonderful! Truly an enchanting experience. Little did I think that this place is going to influence me so much when I signed up for this trek along with my friend. You don't have to be a pro to trek Kodachadri. The distance and different terrains makes the trek a bit difficult and adventurous. But the feeling when you reach the peak is just unparalleled! :)

It was an impulsive decision which turned out to be an exhilarating experience. I was planning to go on a trek from long back but could not get a chance. But with Thrillophillia, it was made into reality. I was a part of the trekking group which visited Kodachadri on 20/12/2019 which turned out to be an adventure-seeking, goofy and most loving bunch of people. Our Trek lead (Habeeb) his energy was contagious. He guided us with the same energy at the start till end. He knows the route pretty well that I was effortless in following him. Everyone in the group is friendly. As I am travelling alone, I never felt lost or ignored. The itinerary and the stay are awesome. The food which was provided is satiable and filling. The transport has been changed in the last minute, but that was also great. I boarded the bus at 11:00 PM on Friday at Goruguntepalya, reached Halli Mane HomeStay by 8:00 AM on Saturday, from there we started our trek by 9:30 AM and reached Hidlumane waterfalls by 11:30 AM spent some time there and continued our journey till 2:30 PM by which we reached Devasa there we had our lunch and continued the ascend we reached Kodachadri peak by 5:30 PM and enjoyed the beautiful sunset the return was in Jeep which was a roller-coaster kind of experience and "I loved it". We reached homestay by 8:30 PM and had good dinner and spend some time near the campfire. On the next day, we started our return journey by 9:30 AM in between we visited Nagara Fort ruins. Overall it was a great hasslefree experience and a big Thumbs up to #Thrillophilia Until next time, Happy Travelling :-)

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.

"Fantastic experience , trek to kodachadri is one of the greatest experience for each one of our group. most of the people from our group was first time trekkers though the Mountains were tough to climb host Kiran and dixit kept us motivated. took very good care of us. we were group of 8 members who joined other 4 member in the trip. we started on a weekend and reached Saturday morning got freshup had a decent breakfast and took a box of lunch with us and started to trek. after 4 to 5 km we reached hidulumane waterfalls ( best time to visit is July to December before 15 ) as water level decreases. this is one of the beautiful experience one can have. After we enjoy the waterfalls again we started to trek for another 8 to 10 km to the top. \nat 1 we rested near stream and had a good lunch. we reached the peak around 3 and again left at 330 and we walked all the way from jeep track. you will really need strong legs as the gravity pulls you when you are coming down.we reached homestay around 8 pm and took a hot water shower and sat near camp fire for some time and rested for the day. next day we visited nagarfort, kavludurga fort and also kavi mane( kuvempu house) it was all worth it.\nevery one in group is so happy as the host took very good care of us. if any one planning to visit this place it's awesome .Enjoy "
