    One hell of a crazy trek this one. The views were just splendid, and the organisers had it all charted out, and were extremely helpful. An initial route through the forest is what we go through which is not that tiring, but after this stretch we move on to the most difficult part of the trek, where we come across the Hidlumane falls and we need to trek in quite a difficult terrain. Post all this stressful climbing, whatever the view you get is unmatched, all that pain, even though there physically, would have vanished mentally.Best to trek during monsoon or after the monsoon has receded to an extent as the hills are completely covered in green until the eyes can see. It's a treat for the eyes to feast on watching the western ghats in full glory.

    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 :)

    The operator had arranged us a decent and neat homestay with good local food. We a group of 40+ people started the trek around 10 in the morning and finished it by 8 in the late evening. It was a 18 km long trek to the kodachadri peak approx. 1343 metres height. It had a few steep climbs with breathtaking views. The great feeling of accomplishing the whole trek is indeed amazing. Ended the awesome weekend with a trip to Nagara Fort.

    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.

    Kodachadri Peak - Around 460 kms from Bangalore city where you can witness one of the most beautiful sunset. So let me begin from the starting - We started our journey in a NonAC bus which was quite comfortable and reached to the destination by 7 in the morning. The place where we stayed was basic, but had all the necessities, and obviously going by the price in which this trek is offered, the place was really good. We started our trek by 9.30 (a lil late from planned time) through 4 kms of forest way. We did it during a sunny day so it was bit tiring. Reached the peak around 5.30 and enjoyed the sunset for around an hour at peak. Now comes the fun part, while returning you’ve to take jeep, which is the scariest part, it’ll shake each of your bone. ???? Still, a very good experience. We returned to the homestay by 9.30. Had our dinner and then the bonfire. If you are interested in knowing a few people, this thing will excite you the most. We played antarkshari and had fun and went to sleep after a tiring day. Next day we visit the nagara fort on the way back to bangalore. Nothing great there. We reached back bangalore by 9.30 in the night. So overall it was a good experience. And definitely our trek leader/coordinators Saloni and Kartik from nature walkers made it easy for us.

    It was an exciting experience.Well organized by BMC. Bus arranged was a push back semi sleeper. The stay was at Chitrakoota home stay on the foothills of Kodachadri. The food and accommodation was worth the money.Outdoor organizers took well care of timings and other comforts for the participants.Anyhow would suggest to visit the place right after monsoon season as you could enjoy the pleasant green meadows. The trekking in winter is more safe and comfortable but the dried up mountains may disappoint you.
