Trek to Kurinjal Gudda [2nd - 3rd April 2021]


About the place: Kurinjal Gudda is one of thirteen hiking trails located in the Kundremukh National Park in Chikmagalur district, Karnataka, India. This trail offers an opportunity to explore rare species of plants, birds, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies and insects. The terrain is dotted with mosses and orchids. The Kuringal Gudda trail is 3,596 feet (1,096 m) above sea level.

Special 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.
