The dense and overgrown forests, criss-crossed with river streams and nature trails, offer a delightful trek in the national park. The peak of Kurinjal, accessible via a moderately-intense trek, offers unfiltered views of rolling hills, covered with plush, green grasslands.
This New Year 2019 trek to Kurinjal also takes you further into the woods to the Elniru Falls, long rumoured to flow down the hills with sweet-tasting water, and the Kyathanamakki Hills, a quaint hill-station with pleasant views of the Western Ghats.
