2 DAY 2 NIGHTS TREK
- Kumara Parvatha
If you want lovely homestay, warm campfire, adventurous trek, and beautiful sunrise all at once, this is a place to go. Covered by evergreen forests, it is a 13.5 kms trek from the base of Kukke Subramanya. It is one of the most beautiful treks offering nature lovers with a wide variety of trees. Visibility can be an issue due to fog in this season. But reaching at the top of the peak is just so worth it.

Another adventure worth taking up, Dudhsagar waterfalls are situated in the border of state of Karnataka and Goa. The trek to this place is so isolated and beautiful that you would not want to come back once started. Going through tunnels and railway tracks, it will give you full feel of a movie
