"Well what a trek it was, enchanting, thrilling and rejuvenating. I would suggest all trek lovers to go for Kudremukh trek as the view will simply keep you awestruck. The trek was well organised and the organizers (Habeeb, Shahid and Danny) did a great job to keep the entire group friendly and motivating. Although the trek distance is lil more (22km) up and down but plenty of water streams on way refreshes you on way. Overall it was great experience and I would recommend everyone to go for this once. "
"The kuderemukh trek with thirllophilla was one of the experience that I would remember for the life time...our vendor abhi had taken care of us very well. The trek was will be a bit tiresome for first timers but the landscape while going uphill and coming down hill are worth giving that extra push. The trail starts in the forest after the forest department check post. once checking was done we will enter into the forest were the bushes of almost 5 ft height welcomes us into the trail. from here you can see the kuderemukh peak from a very long distance. After few kms of walking u will will sea a sign board that 3 kms was completed take some rest there for 10 mins and proceed further. after the you will enter into the meadows were you can see beautiful landscapes on one side and peak on the other side. Just take some time here and let the nature sink into you. form here u will get surprises with the landscape veiw for every 200 to 300 mts of your walk. their will be around 3 ares of around 700 mts where the in inclination was a bit more and it will tiresome to go uphill especially with the sun on top of you. take rest then there but give that extra push to reach top. once we reached top we had our lunch there and returned back to the base camp."
"it was my first trek experience,i really loved it ty for all my friends who hve been part of it especially my bro,rakshak,chandan,vasu dev,keertika,akshay bhai,mosin bhai..all of them and our trek leader gopi bhai was amazing and he was so understanding to all of us....wth more to come"

Well best trekking experience ever. Gotta thank Rishabh from Thrillophilia to suggest and keep in contact until the trip had started. I would like to mainly thank Rahul who was the trek lead who helped me trek through those rocks and steps inspite of the injury I had. Also would thank Anmol who had been of help in keeping with the timelines all throughout the trip. To start, it was a good journey when we reached Chikmagalur in a tempo traveller at about 7:00 AM. Place of stay was awesome. We left for trekking to Mulayangiri after breakfast and that was a total 6 kms enjoyable trek up and down through steps, road and rocks. The caves were a delight to watch and take good pics at. Although very hot, there was a cool breeze at the location. Next Jhari falls was the best falls I've seen so far when compared to the famous ones which are overrated. The water was very cold and getting drenched in it was an experience like no other. The camping in tents and campfire was a fun way to spend the night as the organisers (Rahul and Anmol) made it more like a family trip with interactions between each other rather than each one to himself. Next day sunrise at baba budangiri was so beautiful because as and when the Sun rose above the mountain becoming brighter the winds howled and the fog cleared on the other mountains with darkness slowly disappearing. That was worth watching. 2 days and could see and do a lot. If you have'nt tried this trip, you definitely have missed something in life

Kudremukh trek was an awesome experience..Starting from the bus pick up on right time, everything went as per plan. What a beautiful, green and lovely place.. If you want to see nature in its pristine beauty, Kudremukh is the place.. The trek was difficult and tiresome doing 22 kms within 9 hours, in a rough and rugged terrain during the monsoon.. but the ecstasy of reaching the peak is an unparalleled joy.. Homestay in the base of Kudremukh in a small village was simple but had all basic amenities like geysers, bedding, hygienic tasty home food and clean drinking water with no mosquitoes. Subhash and Sanjana were great organizers and did a wonderful job. We are coming back for more.. Kudos to Thrillophilia.
"Stay and food could have been much better... Good thing is we had a nice guide nitish "
31 December 2020
Very Good
The trek experience, travel, and food arrangements were good on the base camp. The instructor Neethesh was also friendly and good at hosting the group. The accommodation was not provided when we reached the base camp, rather was provided 3-4 hours after completion of the trek in the evening. Also, the trek started within 30 mins of reaching the base camp without any rest after the 7-8 hours bus and jeep journey. Both of these things could have been managed better.

Kudremukha is an Amazing peak - fantastic view from the top, Amazing place - loved the trekking experience. Most memorable trek for us till date thanks to operators. We went trekking on Nov 7th 2020-Saturday. Perfect place to visit for all age groups as the trek is moderate. Dhruv - (full time software enginner) who was our instructor/guide made our trek memorable n entertaining through out, very friendly n energetic guys. Right from the pickup point to drop point everything was well planned and executed properly - comfortable stay with delicious freshly cooked food(Veg and Non-Veg), snacks n tea, hot water bath everything we needed they had it! We never felt that this was a group trek with some strangers, it was a nice bonding experience n meeting new people. The route stretching 22 kms to to the top and back will definitely test your endurance. A sense of accomplishment after completing the trip successfully with lots of stories to tell around and eager to venture on the next one. Thanks a lot to Dhruv and local tour guide who took such good care of us throughout the trip and always behind the last person no matter how slow they are. Would love trekking with you all again soon. A lot of memories captured in our mind and in our phones. Bonus - we also went to Belur Temple on the way back which wasn't included in the itenary. Thank you - Dhruv and Abhi for making our trip amazing and memorable. Definitely will go for more trips in future!
