This Weekend Join hands with team Safarnama to make Kodachadri beautiful as ever. Let's help the team to pick the rags and Garbage from Kodachadri. "Swatch Bharat, Swatch Karnataka, Swatch Kodachadri trek with Safarnama"  and also let's take a dip in thrill and adventure. 

Kodachadri can be considered as the trekker's paradise and encompass everything from perfect dense forests to higher waterfalls, the meadows spreading everywhere and a view of Arabian sea. The trek is possibly the toughest of popular treks in Karnataka but the view from the peak makes the effort worthwhile. A cover of luxurious jungle stretches in all directions. The sunset watched from Kodachadri peak on a clear day is a spellbound experience.

Around 5 km from Kodachadri is Hindlumane Waterfalls located right in the centre of the valley and involves a little higher adventurous trekking. All the stress and tiredness wash away when you take a dip into this beautiful waterfall and witness double Rainbow.

It is believed that Adi Shankarachrya meditated on the top of the hill and the temple is called Sarvagna Peetha which is similar to Sharada Peeth of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Arabian Sea is visible from the last peak on a cloudless day and sun literally goes down into the sea and due to the proximity to the sea, the shape of the golden sun changes every minute.

This place is known for its picturesque landscapes and cool forest with rare flora and fauna.

The Kodachadri name comes from the native word "Kodacha" or "Kodashi" which means the hill of Kutaja flowers and "Adri" a Sanskrit word, or Jasmine of Hills.

Kodachadri is 10th highest peak of Karnataka located at the height of 1,343 meters above sea level in the Western Ghats in South India and is declared as a natural heritage site by the Government. It is situated at 21 km from Kollur and 15 km from Nagodi village, in Hosanagara taluk. The trek is a 12-km route from Nittur to Kodachadri gate.

Home to many endangered species of both the animal and plant kingdom, trekking in Kodachadri can be an adventurous and spiritual experience.
