The Kumara Parvata Peak more popularly known as  ‘Pushpagiri’ lies in the backdrop of ancient shrine of Kukke Subramanya.

Kumara Parvata, the third tallest peak in Karnataka, nestled within the high clouds, is one of the most beautiful scenarios of the Western Ghats.

The place is almost always covered with dense fogs and heavy winds. It is rampant with leeches and snakes, and is also known as the land of the King Cobra. Hence the best time to avoid them would be the dry months of April and May when the rains are yet to be received.

Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, from Subramanya in Mangalore District to Somwarpet in Coorg district covers an area of 102 sq km. This range is also abode to many gigantic peaks in the Western Ghats.

Kumara Parvata Peak stands the tallest amongst the peaks in Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary at an altitude of 5136 ft (1712 mts) above Sea level.
