Kodachadri, Shimoga

4.8
#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.

  • Wonderful place to visit for people of all age groups. A high place. Very nice views awaiting you if you choose the walkway to the hilltop. A temple of the goddess and another temple is available there. Place to stay is available. Guest house is there and the priest also accommodates some in his home. The well celebrated sarvajnapeetham is walkable from there. Early morning views are superb. The clouds will be floating in height beneath us. Simply superb.
  • Beautiful hill station located in the western ghats. Trekking will be great here. Also local vehicles are available to take you to the peak. You will get an amazing waterfall if you go trekking. Also jeep drive will be great as the roads are crazy to drive on. Do not take your vehicles there it wouldn't be easy unless it is a 4-wheel drive. Scenary will be good if you visit in monsoon and roads will equally bad because of rainfall, wet and slippery. Best time to visit is June to August
  • The best place for trekking. Bhatru mane is there where you can stay for the night. there is also a dormitory where you can stay. its the best place for sunset and sunrise. there is an option for you to climb or you can also use the jeeps there. but be very careful, the jeep drivers charge you like anything. they dont have a fixed price. Overall, its an awesome place. If you liked this review, please give a thumbs up below.
  • Awesome experience. Beautiful hill station . Climate is so good at December.. Heavy snowfall.. overall the journey in jeep is very interesting
  • A beautiful trekking spot in Kollur, Karnataka. One can either trek from the bottom or can opt to hire a local jeep with driver and.get dropped midway from where they need to trek upwards. The surroundings are beautiful and it is an absolute treat for landscape photographers. Best times to visit are during or just after monsoons.

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.
