Kodachadri is a mountain peak (altitude – 1343 m above sea level) in the Western Ghats in South India (Karnataka State). The name is a corruption of the Sanskrit word “Kutakachalam.” Kodachadri forms a picturesque background to the famous temple of Mookambika in Kollur. Situated in the middle of Mookambika National Park, it is home to several endemic and endangered species of flora and fauna. Tha rain forests loom in a perpetual layer of mist around the peak.
This is the highest peak in Shimoga District. At the peak it is believed that ‘Shankaracharya’ meditated. And to substantiate the same you will find a ‘Sarvajna Peetha’ at the top.
En route to the peak you will also find a moderate sized water fall deep inside the evergreen forest of Kodachadri, which is called ‘Hidlumane Falls’.
The peak presents a not to be missed life-time opportunity in the evening as the sun sets in the west. You can also have a golden glimpse of the Arabian sea for a moment.
