Previous Next New Year Kodachadri Trek

Nestled deep in the Western Ghats in the district of Shimoga and holding its place as the tenth highest peak in the State, Kodachadri Trek is home to lush green jungle trails through dense tropical forests, picturesque waterfalls, and mesmerizing landscapes. Located in the Mookambika Wildlife Sanctuary, it also forms the perfect backdrop to the Moola Mookambika Temple, believed to be the place of origin of Goddess Mookambika. Catching a glimpse of the evening sunset into the Arabian Sea from its peak offers an enchanting experience; a combination of mountain and ocean that very few peaks in the country can boast of. A trek to Kodachadri will leave you spellbound and wanting more. For better treks details, visit Gorkaya now.
