Being a true treasure trove of nature’s splendour, there are several places to visit in Coorg. One such place is the paradisiacal peak of the mighty Kumara Parvatha, located about 15-17 kilometres away from Madikeri. It is believed to be the second highest peak in all of Coorg, while being the sixth highest in Karnataka.

Aligned along the edge of the Kodagu district, this towering peak is a part of the Pushpagiri range in the Western Ghats. It is enveloped by lush emerald jungles, making it one of the most stunning landscapes in Coorg. During your family trip here, you will have the opportunity to be amidst nature’s fascinating beauty and charm – an experience you must embrace.

Moreover, this mountainous terrain serves as the perfect destination for avid trekking in Coorg. The trekking experience involves a 10-kilometre-long trail through the vibrant forests housed in these mountains, where you will find yourself surrounded by old drenched trees and muddy passageways. And since the forests are less frequented by tourists, you will hardly come across any litter during the trek. Moreover, this haven is blessed with utmost peace and tranquillity.

That’s not all! From the astounding views of the surrounding hills to the delightful shroud of clouds and mist, the trek is replete with many worthwhile sights. Also, the steep bend of the trail opens into a plateau at one point, making it a challenging trek that may call for some foresight. However, rest assured that you will be rewarded with the most exhilarating breath of fresh air. As a handy tip, do not forget to travel light with important items such as hiking shoes, water, flashlight, a medical kit, and a tracking device.
