It was a very well organised trek by friendly and courteous hosts. Shahid, Danny, Habib and Avinash were great and were fun to trek with. Homestay near Shuntikoppa was beautiful with coffee plantations close-by and it was raining the whole time. Trek is an easy to medium range one. Except for the rain and leeches (which we were informed earlier) there is absolutely nothing to point out in the trek. We met many new people and it felt like college days all over again. Loved this trek and would definitely recommend it to everyone.

I would say that this is once in a lifetime trekking experience. Conquering the 3 highest peak. Karthik n Anupam who were our ODL made our trek memorable n entertaining through out, very friendly n energetic guys. We never felt that this was a group trek with some strangers, it was a nice bonding experience n meet new people. 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. Thanks a lot to Anupam n karthik who took such good care of us throughout the trip.. awesome hospitality. Would love trekking with you all again soon

It was my first trekking and had loads of fun :) Planning another trip with thrillophilia grp very soon.
"We had taken 7PM-11AM package for 6 people over Diwali holiday. It was well organised and hosted by them. It is located around 75km from Bangalore and drive was also mesmerizing during our time. So, based on overall experience below are my rating:\nHosting: 4/5\nNight Event (Bonfire): 4/5\nTrekking: 5/5( Must attend)\nOutside Activities :5/5( Rapplin, Mud games, kayaking etc).\nFood: 4.5/5\nValue for Money: 5/5\n\nNote: Only thing I didn't like was sleeping in tent. It should have been flat and sponge but rather it was sloppy and uneven. Also, if you close the zip of tent it feels like gas chamber. \n\nOther than this its a must tryout over the weekend...????"

It's really wonderful, with stay and hosting. Totally liked it.
Positive Trip was well organised. Pick up was on time. Cottage was decent and comfortable. Doodhsagar Trek was amazing. Trek Lead Randhir was always there for help. Bonfire was great. Not so positive There were 13 members but the vehicle arranged had only 12 seats. 4 people had to adjust in 3 seats in last row. It was mentioned that for the trek for half way Jeep will be provided and rest will be trek. However, there was no jeep facility. We did trek for 9kms ‘To’ and while coming back it 14kms way which would have been impossible to cover just by trek. Luckily we found alternative. Also, the next day due to crowd and fall in water level we missed the river rafting which was the main attraction of Dandeli. It was truly disappointing. Had we planned well, we wouldn’t have missed it may be. Overall it was a great experience. Thanks to Thrillophilia and Trek Lead.

I booked it for my husband , as it was his dream to fly a plane. And could say it was the best gift I was able to give him in our so long relationship. But make sure you book from thrillophilia , don't get cheated by other sites who offer same experience in double the amount.

A wonderful & challenging trek - toughest that I have done in South India. The views & the environs at the top of Seshaparvatha were just thrilling. The trek had multitude of elements - forest, grasslands, rocks, a refreshing stream ... Plus the experience of staying in a tent, being in the lap of nature was wonderful The initial part of the trek till Girigadde (on day 1) was exhausting due to the heat and the humidity plus having to carry our luggage along with our tent & sleeping bag. But the second day was all mesmerizing - with that experience, we did not know tiresomeness at all. Few suggestions - 1. It would be great if the hotel where we stop for dinner is vegetarian - it will allow for inclusivity in the group 2. If arrangements could be done to get the tent & sleeping bag delivered at Girigadde, we do not have to carry it along, making the first day experience also enjoyable. Overall a pleasant experience and looking forward to many more
