Kudremukh National Park is
spread partly over the thick hilly forests near the coastal plains on the
western portion and the shola vegetation on the Western Ghats uplands, covering
parts of 3 districts, viz., Chickmagalur, Udupi and Dakshina Kannada. The
Kudremukh peak by which the National Park derived its name, is the highest
elevation at 1892 meters.
features of Kudremukh National Park (KNP)
KNP is made of steep hills and
valleys. The hills, which bear the brunt of the severe monsoon wind, preclude
any tree growth as a result the landscape is covered with grass. The valleys
which are tucked in, have reasonable protection from wind and a deep soil
profile, as a result of which stunted evergreen forests exist creating an unique
microclimate, rich with mosses, orchids, etc. The whole scenery of grassland
interspersed with narrow strips of forests provide a fantastic vista for a
trekker. The totally fresh air and the climb up and down, invigorates the body
and soothes the soul. During the trek, one can view and study several wildlife
species of plants, birds, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies, insects, etc.
