************************

Kodachadri ranges in the state of Karnataka are one of the most beautiful places in Southern India. This is the hill where Adi Shankaracharya meditated for the divinity. The name is derived from a native word "Kodacha" or "Kodashi" which means hill combined with a Sanskrit word "Adri", to form the word Kodachadri. It is also called "Kudajadri" and "Kodashi Parvatha".

Every year thousands of trekkers, backpackers, nature lovers and photographers flock this place to admire the scenic scapes of the Western Ghats. At the peak ( atltitude 1343m ), the sunset and sunrise are considered to be a not-to-be-missed life time opportunity.

Situated in the middle of the Mookambika wildlife sanctuary, it is home to several endemic and endangered species of flora and fauna. Nestled in the western ghats, the area is a nature photographer's dream.
