Trek to Mullayanagiri

3 Days2 Nights

Event Overview

A 280 kilometer drive from Bangalore, Mullayanagiri is a peak located in Chikmagalur, Karnataka. Being the highest peak in Karnataka, it offers larger than life views and the some very interesting trails (includes ridge hiking).

We start from Bangalore on Friday night and reach our campsite between 5 and 6 AM on saturday morning. At about 8 AM after freshening up, and a quick breakfast, we will proceed to the trailhead, a short drive away. A quick introduction and briefing and we enter the trailhead off the ghat-road known as Sarpadhari that leads to the Mullayanagiri peak. This stretch is fairly steep (almost 60 degrees) and first passes through brush and low trees until it turns right alongside a ravine on the right. The trail can be very slippery in the monsoons. We keep climbing uphill with very brief breaks in between. The trail snakes along the side of the mountain until we reach the black cliffs of Mullayanagiri and pass through an opening between them. From here, the trail starts to relent as we pass through a small field of short flowering shrubs. Here on, we hit the last and final stretch to the Mullayanagiri peak. The incline gradually increases once again until we see the temple flag at the peak. About 15 minutes of steady plodding and we will have reached the Mullayanagiri peak. The place is extremely silent and still, almost meditative - a perfect spot for the temple to exist.

After a short rest, and a visit to the temple for those that are interested, we descend the peak and head toward the Hebbe Falls. The trail goes over rolling hills, with hill grassland and stretches of shola forests on either side, all of which make for some very breathtaking scenery (the incline is quite gentle apart from a couple of very steep, risky descents). Approximately 2 hours later we reach the forest check post at Gundi where we stop for a quick lunch. A 20 minute hike downhill from here and we reach the staircase to a waterfall. After spending some time recovering and reveling in our accomplishment, we drive back to our campsite for a well deserved dinner and rest.

We will wake at 6AM the next morning to freshen up, followed by breakfast. We leave the campsite for sight-seeing around and after spending about an hour or two, we will start our way back to reach Bangalore by 9 PM.
