An ascent starts and you have to pass through research plantations, wet decidous and shola forests. Halt of the first day at Jodigere in a pucca building being used as an anti-poaching camp.

From here a valley is crossed and you reach Bettadahalla. Walking all along the boder of Karnataka and Tamilnadu you will see one of the most beautiful and rich forests in the whole world.
