It’s a must do for core trekkers.. tests your endurance n spirt. 22 kms to n fro.. if u think only climb would b difficult n u can come down easily your wrong.. the path is so narrow n tricks n will test you in each n evry corner. A sense of accomplishment after completing the trip successfully with lots of stories to tell around and eager to venture on the next one.

I would say it is the most memorable trek for us. I went on this trek on 3rd August with my four friends and it's a monsoon season. Habib and Abhi were our instructors and right from the pickup point to drop point everything was well planned and executed properly, accommodation facility and food were good. This is the most beautiful trek you will see in India and especially in Monsoon season. The weather was so good and it was raining almost throughout the day. Abhi and Habib were there to assist us throughout the trek and made all necessary thing available for us. and they are expert mountaineers. The whole trek is divided into three parts Easy, Moderate and Difficult and with the help of instructors and guides we reached the peak well before. There are many waterfalls throughout the trek which we crossed them and which was amazing. A lot of memories were captured in our mind and in our phones which can never be forgotten. Overall it was worth spending money on this trip. Thank You Thrillophilia, Backpackers, Habib and Abhi (and other groups also) for making our trip amazing and memorable. We would love to do another trip with them in the future.
"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."
