It's an amazing trip. I didn't expect it to be this good. The place is really green heaven on earth. The trek route is amazing. Very doable and not strenuous. The waterfalls and kayaking are high points. You will fall in love with Shimoga's Hills.

For the beginners Kodachadri is one of the best trek to kick start with your trekking boot-rockets as me and my friends scored out the long pending to do list with our first trek to this enchanting hills. First of all if you are a bangalorean you need to bide up yourself as the journey to Kodachadri itself will cover around 422 odd kms and then your day 1 trek starts from the base camp. The entire tiresome journey would fade away once you take a sight of the fascinating hillside with very a little human movement. The best part of our trek was the falls we found in the middle of the jungle as all in a sudden it popped up from nowhere(Disclaimer: Your energy would drain up here if you take a shower at falls as the real trek to the up hill starts from this point). We took this trek on Offseason in the month of April and was tested thoroughly for our stamina & endurance. Day 2 was fun filled with early morning kayaking, hanging bridge and some exploration on a fort. Food at homestay is too good as you would feel the same as the name states. On a note to complete its a must go trek with your friends and family :)

The Kodachadri trek is one of the most awe-inspiring one I have ever trekked. The path encompass all the features of a nature trek that made the experience more enriching. The starting point was entering into a forest with wild flowers all around. On the way , in between forest we came across hidlumane falls with its pure and cold water.(Needless to say we had bath there). We steadily climb around the edges of the mountain having thick cover of forest interspersed with waterfalls. After a bit of up and down between hills and a sighting of Kodachadri ,we settled down to have lunch on a rocky bed with a stream nearby. Atop the peak at last, we were greeted with a very old looking temple made of stone and covered all around with green growings. In all , it was an splendid experience and the arrangements made by team were simply commendable. Our Guide Prasanth was superb and ideal person we could have asked for.

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! :)

An awe-inspiring, awesome and a lot of "aww"s defined the trip! Am so glad I dared try this! The trek coordinator (Sujay) skillfully talked (and pulled) me into climbing on rocks and trees I was sure I can't (ignoring a lot of "you are nuts" comments, I must add), the team was super (we really bonded over the difficult parts of the trek & the night's camp fire), the atmosphere so peaceful, especially the morning-after visit to the completely deserted backwaters - what more do you need for a great trip? Only problem was the TT - the driver turned it in to a "Flying Machine" and a barely 5-feet tall me found the leg space on the cramped side. Sujay's informal hospitality, patience with trekking novices (and an unfit one at that), willingness to consider any and all reasonable (and unreasonable) demands (we quite literally gave him a head-ache, I believe; but he remained invariably even tempered & welcoming), flexibility about plans and the ability to keep everyone (with various levels of adventure craving and endurance/fitness) happy, safe and motivated really made this experience with Explore2Escape a memorable one. Will certainly recommend this tour and operator! (Picture Courtesy - Krishna Vasudevan & Sujay Kenchi)

Kodachadri near Shimoga in Karnataka is the peak in the Western Ghats where you can watch both sunrise and sunset at one place. The journey to this peak is treacherous and tiring, but it is awesome. One has to trek about 18 kms from the base to the top and it would take easily 6-hours. So, be prepared to dress up for the long & tiring journey but the scenic beauty will enchant you throughout. I did trek once but love to do more times. the kayaking is the highlight of the trip which provides ultimate fun

The kodachadri trek is mind blowing . You will love the waterfalls and the scenery . You meet new people and make friends . But the person who organized it wasn't there. It started with the wrong pick up timings . Then , we did not trek to the peak as it was late and we were tired .They have a single kayak , two in each kayak , for around 22 people . This wasted another 2 hours . Even though we skipped nagara fort we still reached Bangalore at 1 am .
