Want to trek to one of the highest peaks in Karnataka? Then go to Mullayanagiri. The Mullayanagiri peak is 1930 meters high. Except for a few steep ascents, the trek is quite simple. The best time to visit this part of Western Ghats is during and after the monsoon. During these times the forest becomes greener. Animals, reptiles mammals etc. come out of their dwellings because of moderate weather conditions. The site is 280 kilometers from Bangalore and has one of the best landscapes in the region. If you are interested in a quiet outing along with some wildlife photography, this is the place to be.
