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 :-)

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!
