About the experience

Although the mountains and hills of the ‘Scotland of India’ are well known for the beautiful views from their peaks, the forests of Coorg also have their share of natural beauty that can transform a simple trek into an expedition uncovering nature’s hidden secrets.  

Plunge into the hills surrounding Madikeri and enter the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary that is teeming with indigenous animals in their natural habitat. The dense forest is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna that flourishes without the interference of human activity.   

Spot the signs of animal movement such as the heavy prints of gaur hooves or diggings done by wild pigs. Along the way, we’ll visit a local watering hole named ‘aanekundu’, named after the elephants that frequent its crystal clear waters to quench their thirst.  

Splash into this stream and walk your way along a little forest path that takes you through towering trees with thick canopies, bamboo canes that sprout delicately from the ground and vines that drip languorously from the tree branches.  

Lunch will be held in a lovely clearing in the jungle before you hike upwards to the crest of a large hill. The hill peers across Coorg’s beautiful grasslands. Take in the vistas and breathe in the freshly scented air before making your way back to the start of the trail.

FAQs

Yes, we will provide you with water and snacks for this lovely trek. However, feel free to carry any small treats you’d like to enjoy on the trail.   

We’d recommend wearing sturdy shoes with a good ankle grip. Waterproof shoes are preferable because we will be walking through a stream.  

Yes, this trek is easy and family friendly.  

We’d recommend packing as light as possible as you will be trekking. You can carry your own water bottle, sunscreen, travel toiletries, energy fueling snacks and your lunch.   

No, meals are not provided for this trek. It’s best to carry your own lunch and try to keep your meal light. We’d recommend sandwiches, lemon rice or even a tasty poha to reduce the number of containers and prevent you from feeling sluggish for the walk downhill.   

No, you’ll be in the midst of nature, so toilets will not be accessible. You can use the toilet at the starting point but elsewhere you’ll have to adjust to the surroundings.
