Mullayanagiri, the highest peak in Karnataka, is located in the Baba Budan Giri Range of the Western Ghats. Standing at an altitude of 1,930 m above sea level, it is the highest peak between the Himalayas and the Nilgiris. Tourists can relax at this site that maintains a temperature range of 20 0Celsius to 25 0Celsius. The mountain range features grasslands, rugged rocks along the trek path and a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva on its peak.

I went to the place many a times all the times the mountain looks different, beautiful and attracting and less dangerous, one should visit once in their lifetime.

"Variety of atmosphere and careful while driving" new review

  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Place is very good to travel during daytime, as the fog is very thick, climate is rainy, sometimes snow, very cool and heavy wind. Be very careful while driving the car.

"Feel the cloud and rain" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Best place to let the clouds kiss you with rain, wind and heavy rains sometimes. It is a place to be in cloud, feel the heaviness of clouds and rain.

"Love to visit again"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
This place is amazing if you like to be in a peaceful place. So much green all round you with mist covered, it just looks like a whipped cream. One thing you have to be careful is about the parking place especially for cars. I thoroughly enjoyed this place and I would love to visit this place again.

"Very tough to get on top but fully worth"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
If there is a heaven on earth, that is on the top of Mullayanagiri Hill Top like getting to a Heaven is not easy, trust me, to get to the top is not as easy. Heavy winds, the height, cold weather stops you going to the top but trust your gut & reach to the top, you will not regret. I promise this is not less than a Heavenly feeling.

"It's an awesome place"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It's not just a city for me it is a good feeling for me in Chikmagalur. And I like this place very much more than anything in Karnataka. This is the longest peak in Karnataka state and there is all facility like lodging and other facilities. We should visit the place in sunrise and sunset time.

"Mullayanagiri- The apogee of Karnataka"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
If you are planning to go over here, do plan so that you get a chance to be on the hilltop during sunrise/sunset. It's a beautiful sight to see, you above the clouds in a cool and breezy atmosphere makes you amazed and relaxed. Do carry your camera fully charged as each and every single step on the mountain is worth capturing.

"Felt like in Heaven"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
We visited this place as an afterthought visiting Kemmangundi. We had thought to skip it though. If we hadn't visited then we would have missed one of the wonderful experiences we had on this mountain. It was like in clouds. This is the highest mountain peak in Karnataka. We had beautiful picturesque scenes on the way to top. The road to the top is quite narrow at places and driving is very very dangerous at times. The roads are also not well maintained.

Till some point you can drive by yourself if you have some experience in driving in ghat sections and mountain roads. But beyond some point it becomes really very very dangerous to drive due to bad road and curves and very very steep road as you move closer to top. Hence, I strongly advise you to go with an experienced driver. We had to return when the top was 3 KMS as it became difficult to drive in the narrow, steep roads.

"We could see the whole city from the top"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Great place. Loved the high peak from where we could see the whole city. Took a packaged tour so had no difficulty in reaching there as the driver knew it all. Also visited a temple and it was overall a nice experience.
