Also known as Pushpagiri, Kumara Parvatha is the highest peak in Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary. It is 6th highest peak of Karnataka. Spanning over two days, the Kumarparvatha trek is one of the most challenging treks in the South. In a stretch of approximately 13 kilometers you will attain an appalling height of 4000 feet.
Located in Subrahmanya village (also known as Kukke Subrahmanya) of Sullia taluk in Dakshina Kannada district, this towering peak is a must visit for those seeking adrenaline rush. Kumarparvatha does not only enthrall trekkers with its challenging routes but also rewards them with panoramic views of the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary. Although from distance the mountain looks as if one single peak but in reality, it has three peaks called 'Shesha Parvatha', 'Siddha Parvatha' and 'Kumara Parvatha'. The Shesha Parvatha faces to the south and looks like a serpent with seven hoods. The Siddha Parvatha, another part of the mountain and it is inaccessible. It is believed that Shri Vishnuthirthacharya is performing penance here even now. You have to cross the Shesha Parvatha, to reach the Kumara Parvatha.
