Mullayanagiri, situated at a height of 1,930 metres above sea level, offers a towering view of the majestic Western Ghats. The amazing natural beauty that is found at every turn of the Mullayanagiri trek makes it one of the most amazing trekking trails not only in Chikmagalur but the whole of South India. The misty landscapes are interspersed with Serpentine paths, steep inclines and grassy patches.


Mullayanagiri is named after the tomb of Saint Mulappa Swamy located on its peak. It is believed that the saint meditated in the caves that surround this lofty hill. There is also a small temple dedicated to Lord Shiva located on top of the Mullayanagiri peak.  This in addition to the fact that the hill forms a part of the Baba Budangiri range, which is turn is considered to be the holy place of Guru Dattatreya, gives a spiritual appeal to the mountain.


The 10 km long trek completed over a period of 2 days and I night, is famous for its low visibility, ridge walks and unpredictable weather. The easy to moderate difficulty level of trek ensures that people with little or even no trekking experience can complete it in a relatively effortless manner. The lush green surroundings and the soothing environments add to the appeal and excitement of the trek and motivate the participants to reach the peak at the earliest.


The biggest reward for the trekkers awaits them at the summit, where the sight of the beauty surrounding them often leaves them dumbfounded and floored. Most participants come back from the trek feeling totally taken back by their encounters with the diverse treasures that nature has blessed Mother Earth with.


Best Time To Visit


The best time to undertake the Mullayanagiri trek is during the months of September to February. During this time the weather is perfect to enjoy the walk up the mountain and the beauty of the region is at its peak. The trekkers get to enjoy some of the most amazing sights of extremely rare flora and fauna. The trail becomes extremely slippery and crowded with leeches during the monsoon season, which is why it is best to avoid trekking in the region during that time.


A Word Of Caution


It is quite common for deep mist to blow into the path of the trekkers as they reach higher ground. It is better to stop and wait for the mists to clear before proceeding so as to avoid any mishaps. In addition, the trekkers should also be prepared to face gusty winds and freezing temperatures during the course of the trek, especially in higher reaches.
