Brief Description

The Kumara Parvatha trek is one of the most famous treks in the Coorg region. The Kumara Parvatha is a part of the Pushpagiri range. Known among trekking fans as KP, the Kumara Parvatha trail is well trodden but equally challenging and typically takes an overnight stay in the mountains to complete. Coorg, the paradisaical destination of the Western Ghats, is a beautiful place abounding with natural beauty. Kumar Parvatha, which towers in this area at 1,712m, is the second highest peak in Coorg and the sixth highest in Karnataka. Located at the edge of Coorg and Dakshina Kannada, this striking peak is a part of the scenic Pushpagiri range of the Western Ghats and is nestled away amidst lush and verdant jungles.
