"Perfect place to soak in Nature" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Mullayanagiri was a wonderful experience for us on the two occasions we visited there. Probably because both the times were in the monsoon season. It is an amazing monsoon destination around. It was fully covered with mist and the heavy sodden wind was nearly pushing us down all the while we were climbing the steps up. At the top the wind was swirling around the tip with a humming it was a true solace.

Don't miss sunrise at this place, try going around 6, you will love fog and the place. Get a thick jackets, it is quite cold. You will love the view from the hill, you can see the mountains surrounded you.

"A majestic hill with the good view"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Great place, amazing view top of the hill. Last 3 kms of drive is difficult and about 500 steps (not sure) at the end. All worth the effort. Do not forget to explore the other side of the hill and the old cave.

"A romantic destination"

Best to visit during August to January. Full of fog covered lush green hills. Pin curved roads and deep valleys and water falls would fill your eyes. Best romantic weekend destination.

The drive upwards will challenge your driving skills one really needs to be careful and have a full control of the car if you are planning to drive. Once on top it is a great feel.

"Nice place for a trilling place"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is the highest peak point in Karnataka. Heavy wind at the top, feel very cheerful and thrilling. At the top of the hill one small temple where we can take rest. Good place for doing meditation. We definitely enjoy the thrilling moments at the top of the Hill.

"Beautiful place to trek"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Dec 4, 2014
It was an amazing place, it is best if you have a vehicle of your own. One must carry cameras and food there are not any good hotels around. Carry less luggage as you have to trek a lot.

"Go trekking around the green hill"

  • 2.00/7
  • Posted Dec 4, 2014
If you have done enough treks around Bangalore, this place is completely a waste of an effort. View is quite average and there is nothing special on the top. BR hills and others seem to be a better option any day. Or simply just go hike on other hills covered in green during the rainy season - way better than such a crowded hill.
