    Kodacheri trekking is highly adventurous and it is one of the by far the best treks I have been too. While, organising a trek by oneself can be a tiresome job, taking a trek deal simplifies lives. Meeting a lot of passionate fellow trekkers is always a great thing to look forward to during treks. As this trek can be really tedious, it is better if one equips himself wisely with good stamina and strength training before hand. Food available during the trek is awful, and it is always advisable to carry essentials like medicines and stuff for the trek. apart from food everything was very good and the views were amazing!

    I had heard about this place alot from my friends, so i decided to take this trek with my office people. when i reached, the nature was at its best it was worth travelling for 8 hours by bus.. The trek path were quite challenging though. However, the sight was worth the pain taken to trek. I think prior trek experience will be a plus while taking this trek. and i felt so good after the trek, also my colleagues were really happy ! amazing weekend gateaway and stay !

    Trip date: July 2019. Guides: Irfan and Avinash Trekking Reviews: It was awesome trip and very adventurous. Wear good shoes, take very light weight. Because carrying every extra items will make painful while reaching top. Shorts or light weight pants advisable. Raincoat mandatory as its July and it keeps on raining. No jerkins required. Breath taking view at that top. Both physically and mentally one has to prepared. Basic medication please carry as small small wounds possible. Leech attack is common here. Stay reviews: It's a home stay, sleep on the floor but it will be comfortable. Like ur grandparents place. South Indian foods. Basic ones and hygenic. During trek fill your stomach. Not less or not more. It should be moderate. Trek level: Its moderate for first 7kms and rest 7kms are tough. So grab as much as possible in the start. Keep more resting points in the last 7km. Every minute counts while grabbing the top. So as early, as good. You will quality time in the top if u climb early.

    Trek to Kodachadri We were a group of 11 people. Initially the plan was to trek Kudremukh peak. But due to some reasons it got cancelled at the last moment and we were convinced by Thrillophilia to take other options, which is KODACHADRI. With a small disappointment we all have agreed to it. But finally it turned out to be a awesome experience. It was well organized. The food and stay was decent. Overall I can say that the trekking was an amazing experience. The Jungle trails, trekking across Waterfalls and the view from the peak was the best part. Thank you Thrillophilia for giving such a wonderful experience.

    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.
