  • Trip introduction

    Explore the plush green highlands of Coorg in the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary on this 3-day trek to Kumar Parvatha. While trekking across vast, richly-coloured meadows with aromatic flowers and charming brooks, you'll climb over 5,700 feet in the Western Ghats, glimpsing stunning views of the landscape. En route, you'll stop at various vantage points to rest and click photos of the rugged, mountainous terrain, decorated by open pastures and dense forests. In the evening, you'll gather around a crackling bonfire, under the starlit, dark sky of Coorg and spend a merry night outdoors sharing tales of travel and adventure with your fellow trekkers.

    Destination

    The highest mountain peak in the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, the peak of Kumar Parvatha, also known as Pushpagiri, is a popular destination for adventure junkies. Accessible via a moderately-challenging trail, with sections of steep climbing, this trek is only recommended for travellers with some prior experience of trekking. The second highest peak of Coorg and the fourth highest peak of Karnataka is often immersed in dense fog, with the typical cool and misty climate of a hill station.

    Destination highlights

    • Trek to Kumar Parvatha, the fourth highest peak of Karnataka.
    • Spend the night around a campfire and sleep in tents.
    • Trek through rich, green meadows and farms.
    • Explore trails and routes in the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary.
