Arduous Kodachadri

Kodachadri, Karnataka, India - October 06, 2018

The Kodachadri trek is probably one of the best treks in the Western Ghats which offers a 16km one-way hike, flat grasslands, waterfalls, jeep ride and the amazing view of the Arabian Sea - all wonderfully packed in one adventure.
