Kurinjal Trek – A Perfect Destination To Enjoy The Magical Splendour Of Nature


Kurinjal is a lesser known peak in the Kudremukh National Park that acts as the perfect destination for people seeking a respite from the fast-paced and stressful city life.  The trekking trail abounds in mesmerizing natural beauty that is further enhanced by the calm and peaceful ambience of the region. Undertaking the trek transports the participants to another world, where the noise and pollution of the concrete jungles is replaced by the picturesque surroundings, a breathtaking landscape and enchanting environment. As raw nature unravels itself at every step of Kurinjal trek, it tickles the drowsy nerves of the participants and makes them feel truly alive besides redefining their concept of beauty and satisfaction.


Located at a distance of around 300 kms from Bangalore, the trekking trail to Kurinjal peak takes the participants across lush green meadows dotted with numerous streams and lofty tropical forests. The 2 days and 1 night long trip is considered to provide a wholesome experience to the participants especially with its easy difficulty level. The participants have to overcome many exciting challenges while climbing towards the peak, which further enhance the thrill and excitement of the trek. Another exciting aspect of the trek is that the participants get a chance to enjoy homestay with the local people. It provides them with an opportunity to understand the life and culture of these people, who still feel contended about finding happiness in smallest things.


It is important to obtain proper permission from the forest department of Kudremukh before undertaking any trekking activity in the region. This is applicable for the trekking trip to Kurinjal as well as is one of the major reasons responsible for maintaining the raw untouched look of nature. In fact, cluttering or damaging nature in any manner within this region is considered to be a serious offence. In fact, respecting nature and practicing its conservation is one of the biggest takeaways of this extremely wonderful trekking trip.

Day 0 : We leave for Kalasa, Chikmagalur on the Friday night. This overnight journey from Bangalore to Kurinjal 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 Kurinjal, fresh up and have breakfast and prepare to start the Kurinjal 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 Kurinjal 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.
