    Destination

    The second highest mountain peak in Karnataka at an altitude of over 6,200 feet, the Kudremukh mountain is covered with an ecosystem of shola forests, complete with monsoon-fed river streams and waterfalls. The name Kudremukh translates to 'a horse's face', referring to views of the peak from a certain angle that depict the summit to be shaped like a horse's face.

    The peak is located inside the protected forests of the Kudremukh National Park, dedicated to limiting the environmental impact of visitors over the mountain.
