  • This location is shown only to members

Most blogs mention this to be the toughest trek in Karnataka. So gear up for an exciting trek.

Age: 18 and Above with Good Fitness and Experience

Genre: Moderate - Difficult

Join the waiting list and make the payments. Preference will be given to trekkers with experience.

Kumara Parvatha is a mountain located in Subramanya (village) of Sullia taluka, Karnataka. The village is known for the Hindu Kukke Subramanya Temple. In spite of being a small village, it is a well-known shrine, and draws large number of devotees throughout the year. The peak is at a height of about 1712m, and is about 13 km from the temple. This mountain is on the border between Dakshina Kannada and Kodagu districts, so the lights of Somwarpet town in Kodagu can be seen from the peak.

The base hill is folded into three connected projections, namely - Kumaraparvata, Seshagiri and Pushpagiri peaks. The Shola forests are thick and ever green. This is a wonderful opportunity to feel the heaviness of the rain forests of Dakshina Kannada.

Most of the trekkers across several blogs have mentioned it to be a tough trek, with most mentioning it as the toughest in Karnataka.

What do we plan to do?

Cover Seshagiri, Kumaraparvata and Pushpagiri. We will have to push ourselves.

COST: 3350 INR

* Cost covers travel(will be lesser if we book train. If payments come in early, we could book train, else bus to bangalore) and emergency expenses only. Extra saved will be returned equally before the end of the trek.

* A fee of Rs.200 will be collected by Forest Department.

* GHAC refund rules apply

    The trip was awesome and all in the group are very friendly. Though we have planned for Kumaraparvatha it was closed due to land slides nd other issues as unable to get access there. Because of our organizers capability we havn't wasted our time on going there. We went to Mullayangiri by trekking and then Baba Budangiri by trail had a very great time its raining all d time nd while trekking wind tried to stop us. But we ave did that in time amazing waterfalls. Nd while returning to b'lore seen heritage places Belur nd Helbedu. Though there were some first timers they too did it with great spirit. Finally thanks to RD Praveen & Krithika for organizing this trek.

    Have you done this trek before? Just curious to know what makes this trek difficult? Elevation gain? Terrain? Leeches? Distance?

    July 15, 2014

    • Krithika

      Hi Suraj,
      Appreciate your curiosity. Toughness means different to different people. This trek is a combination of all the above and most blogs mention this to be the toughest trek in Karnataka. But if its really gonna be tough for us....... ? We may have to experience it and check the toughness ourselves...
      Hope to see you in the trek.. :-)

  • Harish R.

    Hello Organizers, I am interested in this but there seems to be a problem in the rough schedule you have given. How long do you think we need to come to Kukke Subramanya on Sunday morning if we start at the peak at 5am? You might want to check the duration required for Kukke to BLR and then BLR to HYD. We may not be able to come back by 0830 on Monday.

    Also, I suggest we make the best use of Friday.

    Please let me know a detailed itinerary and I will confirm. I need to be back at HYD by 0830

    June 14, 2014

    • Krithika

      Hi Harish, A detailed itinerary is published which might be changed if situation demands. We might have a tough timeline and need to push ourselves hard and therefore we will be making best use of all three days.

      June 15, 2014

  • Abhishek K.

    Congrats Kritika! :)
    Place looks Amazing! All the best! :)
