Trek to Mullayanagiri peak - 20 KMS from Holiday Inn Home

Mullayanagiri at 1930 m above sea level is the highest peak in Karnataka, which is located at the Baba Budan Giri Range of the Western Ghats.
The base for the trek, Sarpadhari, is further 15 km away from Chikmagaluru. The entire trek is around 5 km and should take about 4 hours.
The road runs amidst coffee estates and dense forests for about half an hour. Sarpadhari or ‘Sarpnidri’ is a small hamlet from where a well-trodden path takes one to the peak. ‘Sarpadhari’ means serpentine path, and it is indicative of the arduous nature of the trek. Cool and windy breeze greets one all along the Mullayanagiri trek trail.
About halfway up the hill, there is a cave. The walls of this cave are multi coloured due to mineral deposits. The cave runs a good distance into the mountain and is infested with bats. The trek continues further up the hill. An ancient Shiva temple perches atop the peak. The view from the peak is breathtaking.

Points To Note

  • The path from Sarpadhari is steep and at times has a 60 degree incline. This trek is definitely not for novices
  • Mists sweep in without notice in this area, and at times, visibility comes down to less than 10 m.
  • The hillside is prone to stong gusts of wind, which adds to the chill factor.
  • Warm clothing and woollen caps are an absolute must on this trek.
  • This trek is not advisable for people who have fear of heights.
  • Amenities at the top of the hill are mediocre at best. It is advisable for the trekker to carry adequate bottles of water, beverages, and ready-to-eat food.
