Two-day trek to Karnataka’s highest peak, Mullayanagiri

Two-day trek to Karnataka’s highest peak, Mullayanagiri

Multiple dates | 9:30PM
Mullayanagiri Peak


At 1,930 meters, Mullayanagiri is the highest peak in Karnataka. It rises majestically above the Western Ghats in the region, offering spectacular views of the lush greenery. Situated nearly 280 km from Bangalore in Chikkamagalur, the trek to Mullayanagiri is a great experience if you want to reconnect with nature away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The starting point of this trek is called ‘Sarpadari’ which translates to snaking trail. As you start the 15 km long trek, you will catch glimpses of the famous Bababundangiri peak on the way. The trail takes you through vast meadows and carpeted greenery, also passing by waterfalls along the way.

Once you reach the peak, explore the rocky caves and whisper your prayers in the temples before preparing to descend. On reaching the base, the trekkers are served lunch which will be followed by a short break. The trail then leads to the enchanting Buttermilk Falls which will refresh you for the climb to Bababudangiri. This is quite an enthralling experience which includes climbing along the gradual steep and rough edges of the hills. The view from the top is mesmerizing and coupled with the spectacular weather that makes for the perfect end to the ascent. Explore the top site for a while before heading back to the base camp for a campfire and a good night’s sleep. Prepare for departure the following morning and visit the Belur temple and Yagachi dam on the way back to Bangalore.

Be it the breathtaking views of the rolling landscape extending as far as the eye can see, or the experience of the great outdoors that's often lacking in the city, this trek might just be the fun weekend activity you're looking for!
