    I would say that this is once in a lifetime trekking experience. Conquering the 3 highest peak. Karthik n Anupam who were our ODL made our trek memorable n entertaining through out, very friendly n energetic guys. We never felt that this was a group trek with some strangers, it was a nice bonding experience n meet new people. It’s a must do for core trekkers.. tests your endurance n spirt. 22 kms to n fro.. if u think only climb would b difficult n u can come down easily your wrong.. the path is so narrow n tricks n will test you in each n evry corner. A sense of accomplishment after completing the trip successfully with lots of stories to tell around and eager to venture on the next one. Thanks a lot to Anupam n karthik who took such good care of us throughout the trip.. awesome hospitality. Would love trekking with you all again soon

    Well what a trek it was, enchanting, thrilling and rejuvenating. I would suggest all trek lovers to go for Kudremukh trek as the view will simply keep you awestruck. The trek was well organised and the organizers (Habeeb, Shahid and Danny) did a great job to keep the entire group friendly and motivating. Although the trek distance is lil more (22km) up and down but plenty of water streams on way refreshes you on way. Overall it was great experience and I would recommend everyone to go for this once.

    Homestay and guides were great, supportive and very cordial. Food provided at homestay was very simple, down to earth and sufficient. Staying in the lap of nature amidst the hills and mountains was a completely different experience in itself. The entire trek was a bit challenging and adventurous and worth the thrill.

    Kudremukh trek was an awesome experience..Starting from the bus pick up on right time, everything went as per plan. What a beautiful, green and lovely place.. If you want to see nature in its pristine beauty, Kudremukh is the place.. The trek was difficult and tiresome doing 22 kms within 9 hours, in a rough and rugged terrain during the monsoon.. but the ecstasy of reaching the peak is an unparalleled joy.. Homestay in the base of Kudremukh in a small village was simple but had all basic amenities like geysers, bedding, hygienic tasty home food and clean drinking water with no mosquitoes. Subhash and Sanjana were great organizers and did a wonderful job. We are coming back for more.. Kudos to Thrillophilia.

    This is one of the best trekks which I have covered so far . Lot of amazing scenery. On the way Waterfalls . Stay might not be good and you can't expect it to be good as it is in remote area. But can increase number of washrooms though.

    The trip was awesome, Fortunately, we got the best group. We were close to 12 people and had a private traveller for transportation. Our Guide was also very cooperative and understanding. I would say the trek was medium difficult. Because of the forest department rule, we had to get down on the same day before 5:30 pm. Later we had a bonfire and the very next day we went to a nearby waterfall. The Food provided was okay. When they say don't expect luxury, they mean it very seriously :P Overall great experience. Kudos to the team.
