Chikmagalur is not just about the nature and beauty anymore. It is all about adventure too. I always that there isn’t much to do in Chikmagalur than sightseeing, but I read about this trek and I immediately signed up for it. It was such an adventurous and awesome trek. It was totally worth it. This is very famous yet it is not crowded, and the scenic beauty from the trek top is mind boggling. If you are in Chikmagalur, this is a must try.

The best thing about this trek was the beauty of Chikmagalur. What an amazing beauty nature can itself be. The nature is so very pretty and I could just watch it all day long. Also, the trek trail was pretty good and moderate suiting for beginner trekkers too. It was quite a tiresome one, but looking at the beautiful hills and surroundings did make me forget all the tiredness. This is just a trekker’s paradise.

    I really liked the fact that this trek was well organized, the trek guide was very patient while he explained stuffs to the travellers. He was talented, interactive, and a fun person to be with. He was also speaking in our language with us, so that we would feel comfortable. It is really hard to find treks with such personalized experiences these days. Cheers!

    If you are looking for an amazing trekking spot in South India look no further than Chikmagalur. This is one of the best treks in Karnataka. I am so amazed by the intrinsic beauty of the nature in the surroundings here.

    As a trekker, I mostly trek in Northern parts of India. This was my first south Indian trek and I am so glad that it did turn out well. Not every day we get to have such great treks and it was indeed a nice planning by the team of this trip handlers.

    It was a really interesting trek. This is my second time in trekking this place. I was with different set of friends this time, and I was initially hesitant when they said about a tour pack, but in the end it did turn out to be as worthy as planning it all by oneself.

    I am totally in love with Chikmagalur. While I had one laid back day with a jungle stay, I chose to go on trekking for the other day, and I am so glad that both were awesome. The trek was so tiresome yet it was so rejuvenating and refreshing.

    A word of advice to trekkers is to do a lot of strength training before hand as this trek can be quite a lot of tricky and challenging. I had a great time trekking here. It was a really nice and refreshing trek after a long time.

    While, I do accept that this is one of the best treks, I felt it was a little expensive. The trek guide was very interactive.
