Nestled in Kemmangundi and offering exquisite views of the Western Ghats, Z Point is a vantage point that can be reached after undertaking a trek of 3kms. This trekking trail begins from Kemmanagundi Raj Bhavan and into the thick forest from which you will come across Shanti Waterfalls. Till Shanti falls, the trek is easy, but after that, it gets a little tough. In the later part of the trek, you are likely to be on a narrow path surrounded by deep valleys and steep hills. Listed amongst the most picturesque places to visit in Chikmagalur, Z Point is a magnificent sunrise and sunset point.
Situated at an elevation of 1500 meters above sea level, this route, though a little difficult, offers exhilarating views of the mountains of Kemmanagundi along with some extensive grasslands which give a distinct setting to the slopes.
Tips : Wear clothes and shoes that will cover your legs and feet properly as there are a lot of leeches, especially during the monsoon season.
