Kodachadri, Shimoga

4.7
#2 of 17 in Things to do in Shimoga
Trek at Kodachadri, a mountain peak with dense woods, which is ranked as the 10th highest peak of Karnataka. Hike at an elevation of 1.343 m (4.406 ft) above sea level, as the trek offers a trip through the mixture of dense greenery, high waterfalls, cliff-drops, and views of the Arabian Sea. One of the main reasons people climb this peak is the unforgettable sights of sunrise and sunset. Spot some of the rare fauna the peak offers--langurs, hornbills, and elephants, among others. See also a small temple near the peak, as well as an iron pillar, which reminds of excellent ironworking skills of ancient Indians.

Where to stay in Shimoga

A major regional town and regular base of explorations, Shivamogga has a decent set of accommodations to cater to its guests. Lying mainly southwest of Shivamogga Town Railway Station, a set of hotels and guesthouses offers some upmarket, business-class options, as well as refreshingly simple lodgings designed for outdoor adventurers. Take a look at some places closer to the Tunga River if you want a little removal from the city, through most people are happy enough with the bit of instant green afforded by Gandhi Park in the middle of town.
