The visit to highest peak in Karnataka - Mullayanagiri was fantastic. We drove till appx 1km distance from the hill top. Experienced chilled weather, clouds all around us and also some glimpses from the top of the hill when occasionally for few minutes there was no clouds. Only problem faced was - since it was a public holiday, there were too many vehicles on the narrow, hilly road making the driving very difficult.

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.
The trek route begins from Sarpadaari, which is connected with Chikmagalur by road. Located in the Baba Budan Giri range of the Western Ghats, the mountain peak is the highest peak between the Himalayas and the Nilgiris after Chembra, Banaura and Vellari Mala peaks located in Kerala.
For adventure enthusiasts, the location offers an opportunity to engage in activities like mountain biking, trekking and road biking.
