Kudremukh National Park (107 km from Chikmagalur)

Published Date: 10-May-2024

Indulge your wild side at Kudremukh National Park, where tigers, leopards, wild pigs, gaurs, common langurs, lion-tailed macaques, and sambars abound. Thick shola forests, resplendent green grasslands, and rolling hills make for an eye-catching landscape here. The Kudremukh Peak (1892m) draws trekkers in droves and is the reason behind the name of the national park. A fun fact – Kudremukha translates to horse-face in Kannada, which is how the peak is shaped! This sprawling park receives abundant rainfall and is home to the gently flowing Bhadra and Tunga rivers.
