A must go place! We started our trek early in the morning and the journey through the jungle and waterfalls was breathtaking! There were a few steep climbs too with a scorching sun above us, but all of it is worth when you reach the peak. I would suggest to rest at the peak till evening and take the jeep ride back down, coz it is one hell of adventure! On the way back, park for a while to witness the mesmerizing sunset. It will soothe you of all the pain. The next day we had Nagara Fort on the way back. A picturesque location, i must say! With so many pics, burnt calories and smiles on our faces we returned with a bag full of memories :)

We had an awesome experience in Mandaa reasonable rate, guys dont miss the chance if you are with your friends. Yea it just took around 700Rs each for the amazing jeep ride, and we had so much fun. At times we rested at some point just to capture the beauty of the place, but the real elegance lies in sunset time.

"The trek was awesome and it could be a little difficult one for the first timers. During the uphill firstly we came across thick forests (there were leeches) and then a waterfall which was of nearly 90-100ft. We got into the falls and played for sometime. Loved the waterfalls. After the waterfalls, the trek was on a uphill which wasn't that dense, for about 2-3 KMs and then comes the Jeep route from which we can finally see the kodachadri peak. we have to walk through that jeep route for nearly 2-3kms to reach the base of kodachadri peak. From there the peak is of 2kms. here we will be coming across rocky road at first and then we will be walking on edge of the hill which is covered with fog and we finally reached the peak. it was an awesome view from.the top. stayed at the peak for about an hour and started back. we came back from the jeep route. The organisers Santosh and Bhavani Were too patient, cooperative and experienced."
