The walk usually begins from the tribal village of Bikkapathymund that sits atop a mountain ridge; the way to this hamlet is in itself a blissful experience! Arriving in the village, hike till the end of its ridge and enjoy the amazing views of the Mayor River along with the Tamil Nadu and Karnataka Border.
