about mullayanagiri peak

While scaling Mt Everest may literally seem out of reach, why not head over to Mullayanagiri and scale the highest peak of Karnataka. A part of the Baba Budan Giri range in Chikmagalur, Mullayanagiri is possibly one of the best places not just in Karnataka, but in Southern India where you can give wings or rather ropes to your desire to rough it out and be in commune with Mother Nature.

While there is a smooth road winding all the way up to the peak that you can drive on, but it won’t be soon before the landscape captivates and lures you out to walk all the way up as it should be experienced. Halfway up the climb the range begins to get enveloped in thick clouds and you come across a small shrine along the way.

Mullaiyanagiri (25 km from town) is Karnataka’s highest peak with an ancient, but newly renovated, Mullapaswamy Temple. In the warmer months, the hike up is relatively easy and the views spectacular. Camp here for the night (the temple priest might even arrange a quick meal for you) and you’ll find the stars look close enough to touch. But the hike up to Mullaiyanagiri will be a tough task in the rainy months.

As you approach the peak and begin to climb the last few 1000 steps, don’t be surprised if it feels like you have stepped inside one of those fluffy clouds you spotted from down below.
