Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
Trek at Kodachadri, a mountain peak with dense woods, which is ranked as the 10th highest peak of Karnataka. Hike at an elevation of 1.343 m (4.406 ft) above sea level, as the trek offers a trip through the mixture of dense greenery, high waterfalls, cliff-drops, and views of the Arabian Sea. One of the main reasons people climb this peak is the unforgettable sights of sunrise and sunset. Spot some of the rare fauna the peak offers--langurs, hornbills, and elephants, among others. See also a small temple near the peak, as well as an iron pillar, which reminds of excellent ironworking skills of ancient Indians.

  • * Beautiful place to trekking. * We have a temple in the entrance. * We can literally see the clouds while trekking. * We have a small cave after trekking for some time, inside which small Lord Ganesha idol is there. * Excellent place to capture moments.
  • Deep sigh with fresh air wipes away our sorrows and give us a fresh start.... Stretch out your hands and hear the heartbeats of the nature..
