We start our overnight journey from Bangalore around 10 pm. Drive through the beautiful view of western ghats leading up till Coorg. This trip will take 7/8 hrs time to reach the homestay. We suggest you finish your dinner before boarding in the vehicle.
Day 1: Trek to Tadiandamol Trek Peak
Early morning after reaching homestay, we freshen up and have a delicious breakfast. We start from a homestay with packed lunch; after the introduction round and briefing session, we start our trek. The first path takes us through curvy & uphill roads for a distance of 2km from the palace, which leads to Forest Check Post covering a small water stream. Right from the check post-trail continues with mud roads, a narrow ascent for about 2 kms covering the next stretch ‘Huge Boulder’ which consists of a flatter surface on the ground & serves a picturesque view & a 2 min descent from the boulder leads to the flow of river Kabini which serves as a water source.

After a brief rest, the next level of climbing gradually increases, taking us through the vast expanse of Shola forest, now the path is steeper, almost 60-degree slopes in a few sections. The final stretch ends up climbing a lush grassland meadow, a misty valley heading towards the peak with blooming flowers during the winter season. From the top, on a good day, you can see for miles across Shola forest and valleys across the Brahmagiri range. The trekking route is quite clear, providing the perfect getaway for enthusiastic trekkers & one of the best trails for beginners. Start trekking back to check post; you retrace the same path. Reach homestay, freshen up, and at night if weather permits, you will be having a campfire and unlimited fun. Overnight stay in a homestay.
