Trekking in Brahmagiri

Another trekking paradise in India, the Brahmagiri Hill provides a unique trek experience to every trekker due to its hilly terrain, dense forests, and zigzag trail. Situated an odd 250 km from the city of Bangalore, the Brahmagiri Hill lies nestled away amongst the rolling hills of Coorg. Since the hills are part of the Western Ghats, rich and dense greenery may be found virtually all year. The rain transforms the landscape into something stunning and appealing. The Brahmagiri hills rise to a height of 5276 feet, and the views from the summit are breathtaking. 

Bracketed between Kodagu in Karnataka and Wayanad in Kerala, Brahmagiri is a significant trekking attraction due to its beauty and culture mix of two states. The trek begins at Thirunelli in Kerala and through Iruppu falls in Karnataka, allowing you to discover lavish greenery, scenic views, and the famous Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary along your way. 

Apart from viewing the beautiful scenery, you may also visit the Thirunelli temple, a historic shrine for Lord Vishnu. Lord Brahma is claimed to have built the temple, after which the hills were called. The location has it all, from hiking and trailing to visiting holy sites and photography, and tourists from all over will love it. Hills, little gushes of waterfalls, adventure, woodland, and animals make up the tranquil landscape.
