Get briefed by your trek lead about the Kudremukh trek trail & all the important information you need to know like the trek distance, the time it takes for the trek, before what time you should return, etc.

Hop on the jeep for an adventurous jeep ride to the forest check-post at Mullodi which is the trailhead of the Kudremukh trek. Enjoy the bumpy ride while you go past coffee plantations, paddy fields & scenic rural landscape. 

Get your permits from the forest department & start the trek as early as possible as you have a long-distance to cover. It takes around 5 hours to reach Kudremukh peak from the forest office at Mullodi.  And, you’ll have to descend back before 6 pm as per the regulations of the forest department.  

You’ll start your trek on a relatively flat terrain till you reach a stream. After you cross the stream you’ll start ascending amidst shrubs & lush green grass. Enjoy the sounds of nature while you climb this distance of around 1.5 km till you reach the lone tree popularly known as ‘onti mara’ in Kannada.
