    All about the “Netravati Trek and Kodige Waterfalls from Bangalore”.

    Hello Trekkers!

    Netravati is a stunning trek that falls in the Kudremukh range. Trekking to Netravati peak feels like a heaven on earth. It is a mesmerizing experience trekking through thick canopy of rain forest, encountering beautiful view points & passing through flowing streams and playing under gushing waterfalls.

    Trekking to Netravati is little easier compared to it’s cousin Kudremukh. It’s about 12 km up and down when compared to Kudremukh which is 20+ km.

    The initial part of the Netravati trek passes through dense forest interspersed with flowing streams of crystal clear water. Crossing these streams is fun, with slippery rocks and chilling water wetting our shoes. This jungle is followed by green carpets of endless grasslands welcoming trekkers onto smooth hill slopes, one above another as if they are meticulously arranged by nature.

    After a good night’s group fun activities at our homestay, we will visit extremely pretty Kodige waterfalls the next day.

    Join Muddie Trails to experience the most beautiful side of Western Ghats in a relatively easier trek to Netravati Peak.

    Highlights of Netravati Trek:

    • The rolling hills of Netravati range
    • Crossing streams enroute trek
    • Playing in the waterfalls
    • Western ghats at it’s very best during monsoons
    • Trip to beautiful Kodige Waterfalls
