    Destination

    Kumara Parvatha is the second highest peak in Coorg and the fourth highest peak in Karnataka, located at an altitude of 5616 feet above sea level. It is located in the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary which is home to rich biodiversity, including wild animals like tigers and elephants. If you are lucky, then you might spot one of them out in the open.

    The prominent snout peak and the steep ascent make this a tough trek, and the trail goes through a dense forest where it is easy to get lost. Hence, the traveller is advised not to stray from the group.
