    The trek was awesome. I had a really great time. Pros: The trekking was in budget. Since it is in Chikmagalur, we planned out travel in such a way that the whole trip covered most of the places nearby, and we did have a great fun with jungle stays, estate stays, forest walks, plantation walks, etc. It was a good week spent here. Also this place is very affordable to stay. I would definitely wanna visit here again sooner. Cons: That being said, the food here is not that great.

    Some treks are very special. My girlfriend and I wanted to try some adventure sports and surprisingly she suggested about trekking. Although, it is not a sport, I did want do it so I did do it with her. It was awesome. I thought that the trek would be too tough for her, it was of moderate level and she was in fact very good in trekking. We really enjoyed the trek a lot.

    Kudremukh Trekking Trail, Chikmagalur is one of the best and the nice treks that you can take in Karnataka. The Kudremukh Trek is amazing and spell bounding. The whole Chikmagalur is a paradise for nature loves and travellers. You will definitely love the place here and the awesome climate. It is also very close to Bangalore. If you are in South of India, then the travel time is also less and the cost of travel is also cheap. We took our honeymoon here where we did estate stay for 2 days, this trek, and jungle stay for a night. It was a week full of fun. It was the best vacation ever. Also, this is a great honeymoon spot.

    The trek was good and interesting. While the trek was definitely enjoyable what I feel is that it could have been better. It could have been more organized and made even more comfoable for the travellers.

    I never believed that Karnataka has great treks. Being in Delhi for most part of my life, I was not well literate about southern culture or geography. When I moved to Bangalore for work, I was pleasantly surprised. It was awesome. I totally loved the place and these surrounding towns. Chikmagalur is awesome. The trek was good too. Just that most people speak in local languages that made me a little uncomfortable and awkward. Otherwise, I did really have a great time. Also, this was the best trek that I had after moving here to Bangalore.

    The trek was extremely good. I had a great time. It was a worthy trek. We were hoping to feel tired and worn out but surprisingly despite the tough trek it was nice and enjoyable and we were super charged with a lot of energy levels even after the trek. I recommend this trek totally. This was definitely a nice trekking experience.

    The trek here in Chikmagalur was something we were hoping for. My cousin dropped by from US, and we all had a kind of cousins’ reunion with this trip. This was a well-planned nice trek. We would like to thank the organizers for pulling out such a beautiful trip at such a short notice.

    Kudremukh Trekking Trail is just a medicore and monotonous trek. One might find it amusing if they are a first time trekker.
