  • Trip introduction

    Kodachadri is also called the Cheerapunji of the South, as it receives the most rainfall in the district. It's a green, green trek that takes you up through a rain-drenched tropical forest, with the Hidlumane waterfall and gushing streams to stop at. The trek takes about 3 hours one way, so you'll have plenty of time to enjoy this experience. But the adventure carries on into the next day when you head out for a fun session of kayaking in a river, and a visit to the historical Nagara fort on your way back. It's the perfect weekend getaway for a gang of adventurous friends!
