  • Awesome experience. I often visit this place whenever I come to my granny's place. July - August is the best months to visit this place as you can see peak covered with fog. I recommend everyone to visit this place. Chikkamagaluru is a best tourist destination.
  • This was awesome. Tough roads, driving to the tip surely has some adrenaline rush as it's on a very high altitude and trust me you need to be good in ur skills as it's narrow, unprotected and single lane incline road where a vehicle coming from opposite side may ask you to drag a little down as they are downing from height. Road is well built though. Reaching the peak needs climbing 480 stairs and the whole way till the top is superb scenic. I am sharing few pics from broad daylight while will surely attract you. Sip of coconut water is in offering at the foothills which is much required when you climb down the stairs from the peak. If you love to drive, trek and feel nature , you will surely love it.
