Mullayanagiri deemed as the highest peak in Karnataka at a height of 6300 ft., is located in the Chandra Dhrona Hill ranges of the Chikmagalur district. The place derived its name from a small temple which is found at the peak summit, dedicated to the Tapasvi Mulappa Samy who was known to have meditated in a cave presently located underneath the temple. The cave is accessible and is not very deep. Cave exploration is one of the most popular activities during this trek. The trek route is highly soothing for the eyes as the entire trail is filled with lush greenery all around and full of coffee plantation fields in the foothills of the peak. The sunset view from the peak is mesmerizing and makes the arduous hike up the peak worthwhile.
DAY 00: You are picked up from Bangalore at 10:15 PM for an overnight journey by coach to Chikmagalur. On the way you will be given a brief regarding the trek route and introduction to the terrain you are heading to.
DAY 01: We arrive at the base camp early in the morning and depart for the day trek to Mullayanagiri Peak. The trail that you will follow starts from Saptadhara which in Kannada means serpentine pathways. The entire route involves steep inclined climbs which make the entire journey quite challenging even though on paper its just 3 km from the base to reach the peak. You will get splendid views of the Western Ghats and coffee plantations in the foothills of the peak from atop the peak. During your downhill trek, you will get a chance to witness The Peace Tree. Spend some quality time here and then head back towards the home stay which is 6 km away from the peak. Enjoy evening Campfire with dinner and stay overnight.
DAY 02: Enjoy early morning breakfast and then embark on a visit to Bababudangiri - a waterfall considered to be sacred by both Hindus & Muslims. Take a dip in the waterfalls to get rejuvenated. Enjoy the famous Ridge walk. Once atop the ridge, enjoy hot lunch. Later depart for Bangalore.
