A notice from the forest department is that it allows only the first 50 trekkers to trek to Kudremukh trek on the first come first serve basis. So we need to start really very early in the morning. It is very near to Bangalore. A lot of IT professionals come here with their family and friends to chill out in weekends. It is the perfect escape from their boring and hectic lives.

Best time:-

The perfect time to go to trekking is in the months of August and September. The hills are really very green and beautiful. The view is marvellous. You won't feel like going back to your daily routine after coming back from this place.

Though the trails are a bit slippery due to the monsoon season but the path is worth the view from the hilltop. You can also plan your trip in winters but the problem in winters is that the view is not that awesome as in monsoon.

Itinerary:-

Day 1 – From Bangalore to Elniru falls

The first day is very simple and less tiring as we will be departing from Banglore to the Kudremukh. We will be going to the Elniru falls. The meaning of Elmira is sweet coconut. This is assumed that the water of Elniru falls is as sweet as coconut water.

The path to Elniru falls is muddy and one can ride but you have to go deep to visit Elniru falls. After reaching Elniru falls, you will feel very fresh. the chirping of the bird and the fresh breathe of air is something you will never get in cities.

After spending few hours in Elniru falls, head towards the hotel and rest for the night there.

Day 2 - Trek to Kudremukh

The second day is comparatively tiring than the first day. This day the actual trekking starts. The day also starts early. Wake up early grab some breakfast and head towards the Kudremukh hill.

You will be travelling amidst coffee plantations, the trail is a bit muddy because of the rain but yet adventurous. You will be also crossing some beautiful waterfalls and water streams. Stop at the point where you feel like clicking pictures and having fun.

The trek starts as early as possible this day because the forest department does not allow trekkers to return after a particular time in the evening. The guide will brief you about the whole trek and the do’s and don’t of the trek.

You will be crossing through some lush green shrubs and beautiful water streams this day. The ascends and descends are not that steep here. But one should be prepared for the worst. There are also a lot of leeches on your way. Be careful while trekking and avoid the leeches.

You will also be witnessing some beautiful meadows and sceneries. It's worth all the efforts. The kudremukh peak will be closer and closer as you walk more. The clouds will also be nearer. There is also a steep ascent at the end. So be careful while trekking. There will also be some zig-zag climbs on your way.

But in the end, the whole journey is worth all the efforts. The view from the Kudremukh peak is mesmerizing. You will be completely lost in the scenic beauty of nature. Wait for some time at the peak and then start your journey back to the place where you have started.
