Muddie Trails presents a fun-filled weekend to Chikmagalur with easy trekking to Bandekallu Gudda, Jeep ride to the highest peak of Karnataka – Mullayannagiri, another Jeep ride with a chilling dip in the Buttermilk waterfalls, a Coffee Estate homestay cum campsite, good food and a lot of socializing.
The coffee land of Karnataka, Chikmagalur located at a distance of 250 Km from Bangalore is famous for its elegant hills and enchanting views, along with its aromatic coffee. Apart from being scenic, Chikmagalur is also a paradise for the trekking lovers who love to explore high mountains surrounded by rainforests. Bababudangiri mountain range offers spectacular landscapes of the Western Ghats with deep sudden dips. While monsoons fill the landscapes with misty clouds, drier months present cool breezes and peaceful sunsets.
On Day 1, we will start early from Bangalore, have breakfast en route and take a pit stop at Yagachi backwaters before reaching our Coffee estate stay. Post Lunch we will explore offbeat side of Chikmagalur with a trek to Bandekallu Gudda that takes 3-4 hours on a rugged but beautiful trail through coffee estates. High altitude of this mountain attracts heavy winds with enchanting views. After spending ample amount of time relaxing at the top, we will head back to homestay an eventful evening amidst very pretty looking coffee estate.
On Day 2 we shall go on a jeep ride to Mullayannagiri peak standing at 1930 meters above sea level. There is a temple at the top from where we get a panoramic view of surrounding valleys. We will then head to Buttermilk waterfalls on a bumpy Jeep ride. As the name suggests, water dripping from the boulders is almost as white as buttermilk. We shall take shower, take numerous pics. We will then move to Bababudangiri hills where the scenery is as beautiful as it can get.
Day 3 is another famous attraction of Chikmagalur called Kemmanagundi with it’s Z point trek, and Hebbe waterfalls. On our way back to Bangalore, we shall give a visit to the Princess statue of Chikmagalur town where we can indulge in a bit of coffee tasting and shopping.
Altogether, Chikmagalur trekking & coffee estate camping experience is a fulfilling experience for those who crave long, relaxing weekend.
