    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.

    This was my 2nd SOLO trek through Thrillophilia. I am passionate about trekking and i feel Thrillophilia is one of the trusted platform, through them i can plan my solo trekking without any 2nd thought. Kodachadri trekking was one of my awesome experience. They experience going through Jungle, waterfall, the valley of mountain and at the end reaching to the peak of 1343m its just awesome. #loveKodachadriTrek....!!

    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 :)

    Kodachadri was my first trek and it was a one such trek that couldn't be better. First we started with the forest trek, to the Hidlumane falls and then ascending to the Kodachadri peak. The experience was beautiful. The fun part was the rollercoaster ride in the Jeep. All I can say is, this trip will forever be remembered thanks to the coordinators for this amazing time. I will never forget this trek and being my first trek and being a solo traveller I had a great experience.

    Trek was amazing!!!! I enjoyed every bit of starting from the ice breaker round to the bus journey. This is a lifetime experience. I can’t believe it was so amazing much more than I expected. Starting from a foggy day crossing small water outlets to grow in depth of long trees. passing through the mid-point it is totally rocky. We can really feel the crush of trekking. Once we reach the top. This is a #mustgotrek for all the adventurous people out there !

    Went to kodachedri trek . The first impression as soon I met our outdoor guide was great. He is an amazing guy and a great person. We have always been guided by him properly and he has arranged everything with utmost care. The Tempo traveller, homestay and the trek are upto the mark. The only thing which needs a little improvement is Food at homestay as well as hill top. Apart from that, I had a great experience and met some amazing people in this journey. A trip to remember always!!!

    This was my first trek and my first solo trip. It completely changed my view of a lot of things. The group that I went with, and (the organisers) deserve all the credit for that. The trek was moderately difficult, in the sense that there were stretches where you could almost walk while there were portions where you literally had to climb on all fours. But the views of the lush green mountains studded with tiny cottages and topped with fluffy clouds was more than enough reward for our labours. The waterfall in the middle of the trail was a lovely surprise. After every few steps as I turned back and looked in any direction- up, down, around- I could see a completely different picture. The weather played a lovely accompaniment to the landscape, as the sun played hide and seek with the clouds, we had enough warmth and respite from the heat. The sunset was a perfect curtain drop to the climb. To top it off, the moon rose on the other side as the sun set! Not to forget, the roller coaster ride on the jeep on the way back was fun and a wee bit scary. The bonfire at the homestay added some adrenaline to the depleted stores after the trek. The short trip to the Nagara Fort the following day was the cherry on the icing, a very quiet relaxing view. The drive back to the city was filled with soothing views of the mountains, and before we knew, we were back in the city! Goodbyes were tough, but we had to say them, even though we didn't want to, because the bunch of strangers I had joined on the bus on Friday already felt like long-time friends on Sunday evening! To sum it up, it was a hectic tour, but the memories I took back with me left me wanting more.

    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.
