Event Details

Baamikonda Trek


About the Place:

Baamikonda Peak is adjacent to Kudremukh National Park and is lesser known unexplored peak.

The Kudremukh National Park - latitude 13°01'00" to 13°29'17" N, longitude 75°00'55' to 75°25'00" E. Known for its bio-diversity and mineral wealth, Kudremukh is located in the Chikmagalur district of Karnataka. In Kannada, Kudremukh means ‘horse’s face’ and the place gets its name from a peak that resembles the face of a horse. The beautiful landscapes of Kurdremukh are a big crowd puller.

Three vital rivers — Bhadra, Nethravati and Tunga — originate from the region. Trekking along the well-established trails lead to the point of origin of these rivers. The trekking trails through dense forests and tropical riverbeds with varying degrees of difficulty, attract those seeking an adrenaline rush. You can see rare orchids and enjoy the fresh mountain air as you explore the grassland.

The Kudremukh National Park is the second largest protected region in the Western Ghats that is spread over an area spanning 600 sq km. The region in and around Kudremukh receives about 7,000 mm of rainfall per year.

PS: This trek is to lend an helping hand to local tribes living close to Kudremukh Reserve Forest.
