It really matters what you are expecting from the spot. Best time is go just after rainy season to enjoy fog & green carpet over the mountain. Good trekking area. We saw few peacocks crossing road and went into shrubs. We still regret that we could not trek to peak; due to chilled weather and we didn’t equipped for the trek also. Trekking through secluded villages, evergreen forest teeming with waterfalls and streams and open grassland patches was a once in life time experience.

I have moved to Bangalore just a few months back and in a strange city with no friends, it was really lonely. Finally i found solace in the arms of nature at the Kudremukh trek! Stunning landscapes, beautiful sights and most important of all great organisation by tour leaders! Thanks guys! I had a lot of fun! I went on this trip with an impulse but it was totally worth it.

Ultimate experience of trekking in Kudremukh! I am an avid trekker and have gone to many treks in and around Bangalore, but this was the most amazing! The Hanuman Gundi falls were refreshing and pleasing! Thanks for the awesome experience, guys.

This is a place one mustn't miss in their lifetime. Amazing views. As good ad any foreign locales. The only sad part is that toilets are missing. Ladies will find it tough and men as usual stop at the National park . the drive to kudremukh from chikmagalur was quite scenic with beautiful waterfalls, river and nice coffee jaunts on the road. The Hanging bridge overlooking the river is awesome.The KIOCL Site and their mining activities stick out like a sore thumb.There is a tea and coffee estate towards the end of the trail where you can take a bio-break and enjoy a cuppa. The lush surroundings, waterfalls and the atmosphere here are truly an awe-inspiring sight.

This trekking destination is in Karnataka and derives its name from the kannada words “kudre” “Mukh” which means horse face. This trek is an amazing experience as the landscape offers a gentle gradient in the initial phases and then a more challenging one as a person reaches the summit Take some salt with you and spray it on your shoes that way you can avoid leeches. The entire experience of trekking to the peak was really awesome. When we visited it was drizzling a bit. So it was quite adventurous and scary at the same time.

The longest trek I have ever done. But beautiful nevertheless. The stretches of "Sholay" grasslands and the rolling hills at the backdrop made for the perfect country side feel. The trek path is sometimes through the forest and caves which adds to the entire experience. You should go only if you enjoy trekking because the way to the top is long. Such a peaceful place now that ore mining has halted and mother nature has regained control!

Kudremukh national park located in chickmagalur district is one of the best that I've visited for sure! If you wanna get lost in the wilderness, this piece of heaven is for you. From lush green tropical rain forests to heavenly waterfalls! 2 other places, Gangamoola and Lakya dam are closed for public access. The trip was fine as expected

Fantastic drive though mother nature. Green everywhere and water falls here and there. Deep inside the Bhagavathi forest you have nature made diving spot where you could dive from at least 10 feet above. Wonderful water falls. Think of anything and you get here.

There are not much options for stay except for some home stay and some govt guest houses. Was lucky to get accomodation at Bhagwati nature camp . Went to trek kurinjal peak. Spotted Hornbills, vultures, deers and some snakes too! But didn't spot a time this time too! Unfortunately Kudremukh peak was not trekkable since there was wildfire en route. So came back and Played volleyball in the midst of forest. By evening, Indian sambar and stag were roaming around our tents. It was such a bliss. Places to see are Kurinjal peak, Kudremukh peak, Hanuman Gundi falls, some pure streams. Temples like Shringeri, Kalasa, horanadu are close by if you are interested. If you are a nature lover, you'll live this one for sure.

The whole kudremukh forest is mesmerizing with numerous streams falls, rivers and landscape.To have a real feel of this place you must stay in the forest department dormitory, this is a remote place (you don't even get food, need to carry grocery and a cook will prepare the dishes!!). This place nests the best trekking locations like Hanumanagundi falls, Gangamoola, while the falls is flocked by tourists visit to Gangamoola is challenging as the place is remote and creepy. Be aware of leeches in this forest if you are visiting in monsoon or just post monsoon.Once a time it was a Iron Ore Mining Place, Good that the Govt put a stay and made whole of this place to be a reserved Forest, Its amazing excellent nature view, Nice trekking places around and fall's, all this can be covered in a day.

Be aware of leeches in this forest if you are visiting in monsoon or just post monsoon. It was a life time experience in the night with only four of us in a big dormitory and no power!! but thoroughly enjoyed the experience Just don't limit yourself expectation of seeing the wild life only, but hunt for Nature also like small water fall, landscapes, mountains, rivers and other beauties of nature.

The trek is of moderate level and takes about 4 hours to scale the peak. Carry shades and water, and you're good. It's a good weekend getaway, recommended. The area is maintained well. Monsoons or Post monsoons is a really good time to be here. For what it is worth, our complete road trip was: Bangalore - Chikamaglur - Kudremukh - Udupi - Gokarna - Jog Falls - Bangalore. We had planned to go towards Sringeri from Kudremukh but missed the turn as we were lost in the beauty of Kudremukh, so went to Udupi instead!

The whole forest is dense and one can expect to see wildlife including king cobras (we didn't see any). I would say we were lucky since it was monsoon season but the weather was close to perfect. There was some haze which meant that I couldn't get the best photographs but I couldn't have asked for more. It is important to drive along this road to complete the experience. There is also a waterfall en route called Kadambi Falls. It is nothing remarkable but may be something to see.

The trail was really a good mix of experiences - one would never feel the uphill or downhill route monotonous. The vibrant colours of the trees, pebbles, clouds, grass, soil makes it totally worth the time! Preferable to plan for the trek in a big group to enjoy the climb and descent, build memories, and celebrate the triumph together .The peak is approachable from belthangady- navoor side or better from Kalasa -chikmagalur dist. The natural beauty of this place is unparalleled.

The road is very serpentine and you many times start feeling monotony, if you are tired of road travels. The views around you are very good. We did not see any wild animals while travelling through the park but felt that the dense forest must be having a lot of wildlife if somebody ventures into it. Worth a visit when you are travelling to Kudremukh. The loads of flora and fauna, waterbodies, occassional wild life sighting is beautiful

My advise for all travelers in their own vehicles to stop at the entrance to collect you free pass to enter the forest and return it while exiting. This pass at entrance is to ensure our safety and security. Note that you should carry your food as the commercial activity within the National Park is very minimal (almost zero). Have a great trip to Kudremukh National Park.
