One of the good but difficult trekking spots of Karnataka. The resting place available is about half way at Bhattaramane. Starting point is behind the Kukke Subrahmanya temple. We had gone in a group of 20 people aged 6 to 66 years. All family members. On the way you come across, Kallu Mantapa, Shesha Parvatha and then Kumara Parvatha we enjoyed a well diversified trek with my family and friends.

Wow....It was a great trek. I must say Thanks to Thrillophilia and Special thanks to trekking team. We have enjoyed every moment of these 2 days and we will cherish these moments for our lifetime.The trek was not easy as we thought. Lot of sweat, efforts, rest breaks in between...But it wouldn't have been this much great, if it was not planned and executed the way the team did.Hats off to the \"team\" guys Anjan and Harshit. They used their experience all the way. Set up a detailed, organized plan and executed the same very professionally. I can say, we are able to complete the trek with ease only because of their precision planning and execution.We enjoyed the trek as a whole and it would be difficult pick a few from the whole list. But I have tried to select the few activities/incidents/plans which made the big difference:1) Tasty Home food: When you are sweating every step of the trek and Hungry like never before, only thing you want is tasty, healthy, sufficient home made food. Team provided all this at the right time. It was not the case for other teams. 2) Professional Planning: First day we trekked only half way took rest for the second half. And the next day, we started very early at 3AM with the torch light. This was the the master plan, because under the Sun it is very difficult to trek KP. 3) It was like a family trip: We never felt Anjan and Harshit were outside people. They have treated, instructed, take care of us very well. 4) Proper Instructions: Team told us what to carry and what not to carry. They have briefed the detailed the plan well before. Given enough time for relaxing and they were very friendly in their behavior. 5) Personal Touch: Anjan has given his personal touch for every activity. He could have easily told to have food in Bhattara Mane. He could have told it is not possible to prepare Bajji and Papad on the mountains. But they have treated us like a family, did all the above and put is best efforts to make us happy. And early morning at 3AM prepared Ragi Malt to keep all of us energetic hike the mountain.6) Enough: I have already written so many words. I will stop here. To put it in one word, the trekking was outstanding, simply superb and if you are passionate about trekking please try once. But better if you join the same tour operator as ours. They make it easy. They are very passionate and professional. All the best.

I have been to around 10 treks both in India and Europe and I must say that this is one of the best treks I have experienced. Great views, thick forests, trail that challenges both physical and mental abilities, nice camping spot and spontaneous friends are few highlights. The only downside I faced is a late departure from Bengaluru where I waited for 75 minutes in Goraguntepalya stop. It was not organiser's fault. One of the participant was late at previous stop and they waited. I encourage the organisers to have a strategy for late comers and participants kindly develop time manners and respect other's time. Our guides Mahesh and Srinidhi were super and kind. They don't trek, they walk the mountains :) So effortlessly. All in all, a happy and memorable trip.
