With the promise of a picturesque view of a mountain in the shape of a horse face, Kudremukh is famous for its biodiversity and scenic beauty.
A popular hill-station among the Bangalore crowd, Kudremukh is actually a hill range in the Chikmagalurdistrict of Karnataka.

Varaha Parvatha, another mountain range nearby at a height of 1458m above sea level is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
