So participants of the trekking trip should avoid indulging in any such activities just for fun or even otherwise. It is also important for the trekkers to understand that the trail passes through a dense forest area and hence it is extremely important for them to remain with their trekking group at all times. In case they feel exhausted, they should request for everyone in the group to take a short break rather than sitting back and relaxing alone.
Day 0 : We leave for Kalasa, A Chikmagalur on the Friday a night. This overnight journey from Bangalore to Kudremukh is breath-taking, where the early birds can see the nature unfolding.
Day 1 : Reach early at Shamse around 10 km from Kalasa, from here the ride continues in a Jeep to Mullodi. The 6 km off road drive is quite thrilling and beautiful. Upon reaching Mullodi, which serves as the Homestay in Kudremukh, fresh up and have breakfast and prepare to start the Kudremukh peak trek with packed lunch. The nearly 20 km trail takes you through the tropical rain forest, which can get a bit messy during the monsoons. But otherwise, its sheer beauty is magical. As you advance up, you will encounter things that might leave you smitten. Stroll through the backwoods, cross a few water streams, revive in a mini-waterfall, and find yourself in the green meadows, stretched as wide as your eyes can see. At Kudremukh peak, listen to the spouting sound of the waterfall from the other side of the peak. You can see the thick woods on one side and a sheer drop on the other, and the breezy winds can knock you off, so sit tight!. The spot serves as the perfect spot to satisfy a photographer's soul. Head back to the Homestay before dusk where hot and crisp dinner awaits. Campfire and Tent stay are provided for the nature enthusiasts.
Day 2 : Early morning after breakfast, visit the Somawathi falls to get an invigorating shower, then pack up to check out of the Homestay and head back to Bangalore.
