    Destination

    The trek to Brahmagiri Coorg takes you to the secluded, lush greenery of the Western Ghats near the state borders of Kerala and Karnataka. During the trek, you'll hike up to reach the Aabhel peak, a little-known, isolated mountain peak amidst overgrown Shola forests. You'll also visit the Iruppu falls, formed by the Maani River running over mountain cliffs. Myths about the river claim that a dip in Iruppu's waters will cleanse you of your sins.

    You'll stay in alpine tents pitched at a beautiful campsite, arguably the highlight of your trek. Here, surrounded by aromatic coffee plantations, you'll spend dark, starry nights around a merry bonfire with soulful music.
