Besides, the region is home to some of the endangered species of plants and animals, which you can spot if lucky. This trek takes 4 - 5 hours to complete.

3. Galibeedu- Subramanya Trek

This is another one of the beautiful treks leading into the heart of the hill town with several villages and incomparable natural beauty of the hills of the Western Ghat.
