    Explore the tropical forests of the Kudremukh National Park, scale the high peak of Kurinjal, trek to the sweet-water Elniru falls, visit the Kyathanamakki hills and celebrate the new year 2019 at a home-stay in the woods. On the night of 31st, you'll gather around a merry campfire at a rustic home-stay. Under the starlit sky of countryside Karnataka, in the company of your fellow campers, you'll sing a few songs and dance to a few tunes and celebrate the new year 2019.

    Apart from the new year celebrations, you'll also trek through lofty, tropical forests of the Kudremukh National Park and relax to mesmerizing views of rolling meadows from the Kurinjal peak. You'll trek to the Elniru Falls, rumoured to flow with sweet water that tastes similar to coconut water, and visit the Kyathanamakki Hills with beautiful views of the Western Ghats.

    Destination

    Kurinjal Peak, hidden away in the deep corners of the Kudremukh National Park, is a lesser-known mountain summit in the Western Ghats. 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.
