Experience the Spectacular Nethravathi Trek: Birthplace of Nethravathi River and Hidden Peaks

Discover the hidden gem of the Western Ghats with the exhilarating Nethravathi trek. Renowned among experienced hikers, this trail in the Kudremukha National Park offers a perfect blend of adventure, serenity, and natural beauty. While it may have been overshadowed by other popular treks in the region, the Nethravathi trek has recently gained well-deserved recognition, captivating all who venture upon it.

Immerse yourself in the enchanting ambiance of the Western Ghats as you embark on this approximately 12 km trail. Along the way, you'll encounter two water streams, numerous waterfalls (depending on the season), dense forests, vast grasslands, and the majestic peaks that play hide and seek with the clouds. Nature comes alive as birds fill the air with their melodious songs, and the gurgling streams share tales of their journey. Prepare to be captivated by the beauty and charm that unfolds before your eyes, as the mountains themselves communicate with you in their unique language.

One of the highlights of the trek is the Nethravathi River, which is believed to have been discovered by sages from Dharmasthala, who sought its holy waters. This sacred river flows through the revered pilgrimage site of Dharmasthala and holds great significance in Indian mythology. Legend has it that Lord Varaha, in his divine form, protected the land from floods, causing tears of joy to flow and giving birth to the Nethravathi River. It is also worth mentioning that the famous Bandaje Falls, found on the Bandaje and Ballalarayana Durga trek, is formed by one of the Nethravathi River's tributaries.

Escape to a place where the land meets the sky and life sparkles with newfound meaning. The Nethravathi trek is a transformative journey that pushes your limits, allowing you to witness breathtaking landscapes, take refreshing dips in Kodige Falls, and marvel at the architectural wonders of the Chennakeshava temple in Belur. This two-day adventure promises an unforgettable experience that will leave you inspired and rejuvenated.

Embark on the Nethravathi trek and let the mountains reveal their secrets as you create lifelong memories. Join us on our next adventure and be part of this joyous expedition. Check out the itinerary and get ready to immerse yourself in the wonders of the Nethravathi trek.
