Bhavan: Kudremukha peak in Karnataka is famous for trekking. The name, Kudremukha means Horse Face. It's a beautiful place for trekking and very well maintained. Best time to visit in rainy and winter season and beware about leeches too. Wonderful place for Photographers. Its too cold in rainy and winter season so its better to carry good jackets.

Kudremukh translates into horse's mouth in Kannada. The peak resembles the face of a horse. Coffee Gudda is a exotic homestay set in 16 acres of lush coffee plantations and to complete the picture a river flows by its side. The Kudremukh range lies in the backdrop and numerous waterfalls dotting the area.

Prashob shares his sublime experience of staying at Coffee Gudda. He says: “I stayed in Coffee Gudda Homestay. The overall home stay was very good. The services of the home stay staffs were good and helpful. The home stay food was good and tasty. The home stay rooms were good and spacious with all amenities. The appearance of the home stay was good. The check in and check out process was done on time. The Jeep was provided by home stay as we cannot take bus to that place.”

Arjun: This place is been called as Karimale in sandalwood movies. Truly a place you can have it for memory lane. It was great during the bonfire (that they lit at dusk) to have the veranda of both the cottages to run around.

He taught you everything there is to know about life, spend quality time camping

From wiping tears to teaching us that a scrape on the knee was not the end of the world, dad’s have taught us everything that we know about life. Why not share the love with a beautiful camping holiday amidst mountains at Kudremukh ? Maybe trek the mountains too.

Amulya: It takes around 8 hrs to reach Kudremukh from bangalore. The roads are pretty decent. The ghats section starts once we are close to Belur. One need to travel at least 3 hrs in the ghat section. One can see Coffee and tea estates on either sides of road. One would surely enjoy the beauty of nature but at the same time the journey would be bit tiring due to curve path.

When lost in the wild, finding food is the first you should do!

Wandered off a trekking trail? Charged by a wild animal and have no clue where you are? Lost in the wild? Your first recourse SHOULD NOT be to find food, your body can survive for upto 6 weeks without food.

Your first steps should be to find or build a shelter safe from the local wildlife and protecting you from the elements. Next, find a good source of safe drinking water.

If you wander off the trail on the trek to the Kudremukh peak, do not panic. You are close to either the Tunga River, the Lakya dam or the Kyatanamakki power house. Find yourself a place, preferebly off the forest floor in the rainforest and close to one of the numerous streams. Look for game trails used by the local wildlife, they always lead to water.

Mother Nature at its best

The ghar section starting from Mudigere up to Kalasa and from kalasa to kudremukh. It's just jaw dropping, the best season is monsoon to see waterfalls erupted just like wild mushrooms it's so picturesque one need to visit the place to feel it.

Serene birth city of mine

I was born in this beautiful place called Kudremukh. The beauty is just unexplainable. The greenery. The cold breeze- just so relaxing. Make sure you carry umbrella just in case it rains. Also, careful with the leach. Don't move around much into the greenery as the leaches may climb on to your feet without you noticing it. The roads are beautiful and little narrow. It's a thrill to drive with so much cloud but please be careful.

Kudremukh Overview

Kudremukh, or Kuduremukha, is a mountain peak in Chikkamagalur District, in Karnataka. A small town named after this range is located close to the mountain, 48 km from Karkala and 20 km from Kalasa. It is situated at an elevation of 1894 m above sea level.

Kuduremukha, in Kannada, means 'horse-face' and it refers to a scenic view of a mountain face that looks like the face of a horse. Traditionally, Kudremukh was also familiar as Samseparvata, because it was approached from Samse village.

The British administration declared the region as a Reserve Forest to preserve the Western Ghats from burning down forests and deforestation practices. Recently it was declared as a Tiger Reserve under the Bhadra Tiger Sanctuary.

The Kudremukh town is mainly an iron ore-mining town. The area is covered in thick shoal forests and natural grasslands. The animals found here include the Malabar civet, wild dogs, sloth bear and spotted deer among others. The drive through the forest ranges is scenic.

Three significant rivers, the Tunga, the Bhadra and the Nethravathi have their origins here with the Tunga and Bhadra rivers running all the way through the parklands. An idol of goddess Bhagavathi and a Varaha image, 1.8 m inside a cave are the chief attractions. Kadambi waterfalls also draw a large number of people.

Situated 32 km from Kalasa, the water from Hanumana Gundi Waterfalls goes down onto natural rock formations from an altitude of more than 100 feet. Reaching the falls involves some trekking. Presently there are about 13 trek routes in Kudremukh ranging from easy to difficult ones.

Kudremukh can be reached by flights, trains and buses. The nearest airport is at Mangalore, 130 km away and the nearest international airport is at Bangalore at a distance of around 350 km. The nearest railhead is Mangalore. Kudremukh can also be reached by KSRTC and private buses from Bangalore and other cities in the state.

The best time to visit Kudremukh is between October and May.
