    One of the coolest people to guide us in the trek. They are so flexible with our needs and were so supportive. The trekking part was so comfortable for all of us. Campfire and staying in tents was more fun than we expected. Experience at the water park was way more fun than all other things. It would have a 5-star rating if the food was a bit more good and only Veg food was available but as prescribed in the website, not Veg/Non-Veg. I am sure all will love it, but make sure you go during a specific time where you can see more green.

    Great experience, well organized trek. second day was not so fun as first day where we went for trek and 1: climbing up the hills, had lunch and then visited waterfalls, camp fire was moderate. On day 2 we just visited some temple and head back to bangalore. Organizing team took care of everything never let anyone behind during trek. lunch and dinner on day 1 was good. Don't expect every place to be greeny.

    Well best trekking experience ever. Gotta thank Rishabh from Thrillophilia to suggest and keep in contact until the trip had started. I would like to mainly thank Rahul who was the trek lead who helped me trek through those rocks and steps inspite of the injury I had. Also would thank Anmol who had been of help in keeping with the timelines all throughout the trip. To start, it was a good journey when we reached Chikmagalur in a tempo traveller at about 7:00 AM. Place of stay was awesome. We left for trekking to Mulayangiri after breakfast and that was a total 6 kms enjoyable trek up and down through steps, road and rocks. The caves were a delight to watch and take good pics at. Although very hot, there was a cool breeze at the location. Next Jhari falls was the best falls I've seen so far when compared to the famous ones which are overrated. The water was very cold and getting drenched in it was an experience like no other. The camping in tents and campfire was a fun way to spend the night as the organisers (Rahul and Anmol) made it more like a family trip with interactions between each other rather than each one to himself. Next day sunrise at baba budangiri was so beautiful because as and when the Sun rose above the mountain becoming brighter the winds howled and the fog cleared on the other mountains with darkness slowly disappearing. That was worth watching. 2 days and could see and do a lot. If you have'nt tried this trip, you definitely have missed something in life

    I have never experienced wind so strong that it could feel myself flying off the floor and this is what Mullayangiri will offer you. Now, don't worry - stay strong, hold on to people and things and climb the hill to get an amazing view.
