These continuous mountain ranges also form a provisional natural boundary, separating Kerala and Karnataka. Moreover, the fact that it is just only beginning to be recognised as a viable option for adventure, makes it an off the beaten track adventure opportunity! It is about 335 Km from Bangalore and The trek distance from the base point Talacauvery is around 13 – 14 km. This is the 2nd trek I did in Western Ghats and I still remember the dense jungle, beautiful landscape, the challenging trail and Leeches which are hard to ignore. In monsoon it is quite common and I was also part of blood donation. So, request the hikers to take proper care and handle this carefully and enjoy the sheer nature. Self cooking and camping adds up the adventure and the whole experience.
