Kumara parvatha (KP) trek is of 13-14 kms long from Kukke and has a view point of the western side of the Ghat section. To complete the trek in 1 day one has to start as early as possible preferably before 6AM. There is one halt before the forest check post which is famous and is known as batara mane. One can avail tent here for stay 450 per tent and meals are available. Its costs around 150rupees, as of January 2021 per (unlimited) meal per person. Pre booking is available. This place is around 4.5kms from the start and can be done within 2hours (depends upon each individual's capacity and ability to hike) the rocky mountain is bit difficult to start with but then the terrain changes to forest and plain land in certain areas. There is only one stream in the entire region which is okay to drink.

Take dry fruits, fresh fruits and water bottle. Along with necessary accessories like shoes, hat and pain relief balm. Atleast one Govt ID proof is mandatory to carry to register in the check post. Only cash is accepted in the entire trek. 500 depsosit and 350 per person in the check post, deposit is returned if you return before the deadline. And in the batara mane also only cash is accepted, keep sufficient cash in hand. The time taken to climb is more and the time taken to rescind is Nearly 1/3. One can start the journey on the evening and stay near batara mane and enjoy the night and start the remaing trek in the morning.

We, myself, my wife, two sons (>20 years) did this trek on 14th Jan 2021. We started at 5 in the morning and returned back to Kukke (base) by 8.45 pm. It was exhaustive, challenging our limits and believe me, while returning I repented on my decision of coming here for trek because i was so tired and all my body parts were singing different songs. But the satisfaction you will get on this trek in marvelous. This is beautiful and astonishing and marvelous trek. Words will fall short in describing its beauty. One should do it once to feel proud of oneself.

Few tips:
1.Carry two bottles per head as water sources are not very frequent in the trail
2.prior trekking experience is advisable
3.Carry enough food. Only place you will get a good food is at Bhatramane, which is after 5 kms of hard trek from Kukke (Base) and apart from this place, you will not food anywhere on the entire trail
4. You have the option of staying in Bhatra mane, and most of the trekkers do that.

We started our journey from Mumbai on 25th Jan, we went to Manglore, from there we reached to kukke Subramanya temple by bus araund 11am. We started our trecking araund 11:30 am. It was a Sunday so there were so many people who were climbing dawn while we were climbing up. This was my first experience of trecking and staying in tent, that's why I was so excited.we went through dense forest it was amazing. Sounds of birds was attractive. We visit spring over there that was fabulous. We reached at Bhatt's house till 3 pm. We enjoyed meal there, fixed our tent and took rest for some time. At eve araund 5 pm we went sunset point we spent quality time there, took photographs, enjoyed nature's beuty, sat quietly. After that we had our dinner at Bhatt's house, hot sambar rice with pickel was really tasty. After dinner we enjoyed a fantastic view of sky......and slept nicely. On second day morning after breakfast araound 9:30 am we started climbing dawn and reached to kukke Subramanya temple araund 12 noon. Really it was very nice experience. thanks to my best friend for adding such a wonderful experience in my life.

The trek is pretty tough if it's a sunny day. The total trek is of about 14kms out of which 8kms are covered in forest but the remaining 6kms are completely open, not a single place for shade. The view is pretty good but nothing extraordinary. Surprisingly, it was pretty hot even on a January night.
I would recommend reaching the forest check post sometime in the afternoon and camp there, then start for the peak next day early morning.

Went through BMC adventures, it was really hassle-free experience. The trek leads were really helpful. Alveera was very engaging and kept us entertaining throughout the journey. Mohith and Darshan were really helpful too, they ensured everyone had their dinner and only then took theirs. :)

It's the longest trek in Karnataka. Located in Western Ghats right behind Kukke Subramnya temple. There are two ways to start this trek, one from Somawarpete side and one from Kukke side. From Somawarpet reaching peak is easier. From Kukke, the climb is more strenuous and long. Overall a good trek after you have finished few one day treks nearby Bangalore.

Pushpagiri is one of the most challenging trek in south india. Nearlr 15 km one side frome base point to peak. 8 km from the base point we can find "battrumane", where we can stay and have food. Nearby that only we can find forest office where we have to pay trekking fees before moving on to the peak.The last 8 kilometers trail is through top of the hills with extreme high temperature where our endurance will be tested. Finally we reached peak at 3:45 PM. We started the trek at 7:30 AM. 6 of us started from the base point, only 3 of us managed to reach the peak. During the night, we had fire amp near forrest office we will be allowed stay with our tents. Overall its an awesome experience and it is a heaven for adventure lowers.
