Kodachadri Trek- Plan The UnPlanned

What to Expect
Day 0 – Depart for Kodachadri: An overnight bus journey of 397 km commences from Bangalore to Kollur. We shall have a brief orientation followed by a fun-filled ice-breaking session where you will get to know your fellow trekkers better.
Day 1 – Trek to Kodachadri (via Hidlumane Falls): The cosy little homestay near Sampekatte, which is a short drive away from the starting point of our trek is as close to home as a homestay could get and the strictly authentic local vegetarian cuisine served here is a delight to the senses and an experience in itself. There are mainly five milestones that one needs to look out for on this trail. The first is an open field of meadow that pops up out of nowhere amidst thick forest trails. Numerous paddy fields later, the trail ultimately leads up to a house where a small surprise awaits for the tired trekkers.
The second is the much awaited Hidlumane Falls which is a combination of seven waterfalls and making your way up each of them is an adventure on its own. The feeling of pristine water gushing over your tired bodies will be therapy, to say the least.
An almost vertical climb on the front face of the trail over tree roots and slippery rocks from the Kodachadri Falls leads to steeper meadows that eventually end up on the top of the very first peak on this trail. This forms the third milestone and is a good place to rest and have some much-deserved lunch.
Further, the trail diverges only to merge again until it joins the jeep trail that leads up to the Kodachadri Temple. This is your fourth milestone and is also the point from where you’ll be boarding the jeep on your way down.
From here, a rocky trail through a cliff’s edge ultimately leads you to the fifth and final milestone of the trek which is the Kodachadri peak itself. Here you will find the Sarvajna Peetha, a small temple-like structure made of stone where Adi Sankaracharya, an 8th-century Indian philosopher and theologian is said to have mediated. 
Day 2 – Visit Nagara Fort
Today, we shall head towards the Nagara Fort located in the Shimoga district of the state of Karnataka. Built in the 16th Century, the ruins of this fort still hold on to its old world charm and essence of heritage. The gorgeous sight of the fort that you’ll get when you are driving your way will make you stop in order to visit the fort. It’s in size not much huge but there’s something about this place that’ll just leave you awestruck.
Once here, enjoy the stunning views atop the fort, explore its ruins, laze around on its accompanying grasslands or play an exciting game of Kabaddi with your trek mates. The options are endless when it comes to while away your time here before heading back to Bangalore and concluding the trip with Plan The Unplanned with a lot of good memories and friends made.
