One of the coolest people to guide us in the trek. They are so flexible with our needs and were so supportive. The trekking part was so comfortable for all of us. Campfire and staying in tents was more fun than we expected. Experience at the water park was way more fun than all other things. It would have a 5-star rating if the food was a bit more good and only Veg food was available but as prescribed in the website, not Veg/Non-Veg. I am sure all will love it, but make sure you go during a specific time where you can see more green.

Great experience. It was fun and adventures. The organizers took care of everyone and everything they were supposed it and they are very helpful. And it was well organized.
It is a nice place to be but is not that green now (in March) because of summer I guess.
Probably I will visit again after monsoon.

Well best trekking experience ever. Gotta thank Rishabh from Thrillophilia to suggest and keep in contact until the trip had started. I would like to mainly thank Rahul who was the trek lead who helped me trek through those rocks and steps inspite of the injury I had. Also would thank Anmol who had been of help in keeping with the timelines all throughout the trip. To start, it was a good journey when we reached Chikmagalur in a tempo traveller at about 7:00 AM. Place of stay was awesome. We left for trekking to Mulayangiri after breakfast and that was a total 6 kms enjoyable trek up and down through steps, road and rocks. The caves were a delight to watch and take good pics at. Although very hot, there was a cool breeze at the location. Next Jhari falls was the best falls I've seen so far when compared to the famous ones which are overrated. The water was very cold and getting drenched in it was an experience like no other. The camping in tents and campfire was a fun way to spend the night as the organisers (Rahul and Anmol) made it more like a family trip with interactions between each other rather than each one to himself. Next day sunrise at baba budangiri was so beautiful because as and when the Sun rose above the mountain becoming brighter the winds howled and the fog cleared on the other mountains with darkness slowly disappearing. That was worth watching. 2 days and could see and do a lot. If you have'nt tried this trip, you definitely have missed something in life

Due to Karnataka elections and some unexpected reasons, we couldn't go for Mulayanagiri trek but Suppliers organized another trek for us in a different area near Chikamagalur. Right from the start of the trip, suppliers were keen on clarifying our queries and assisted us in every matter. Our guide, Narahari was very responsive throughout the trip. It was a 5 hr trek and we went to waterfalls as well. View from the top was worth the trek. Really beautiful. Post-trek, we had a relaxing stay at Wild View estate which was located amidst coffee plantation. They offered us great food and wonderful hospitality. They organized campfire too (do try their homemade wines). We were two different teams but never felt so. Altogether, we had an awesome experience :) I highly recommend this trek to all those nature lovers :)

It was one of the most memorable treks I’ve ever taken. Mullyanagiri Trek has been on my mind for a really long time. I went trekking for the first time and it was such an amazing experience and view is unforgettable. I can’t get it off my head.

"Great experience, well organized trek. second day was not so fun as first day where we went for trek and waterfalls.day 1: climbing up the hills, had lunch and then visited waterfalls, camp fire was moderate. On day 2 we just visited some temple and head back to bangalore. Organizing team took care of everything never let anyone behind during trek. lunch and dinner on day 1 was good. Don't expect every place to be greeny."

Me and my wife went to join this trekking on our own. We were travelling to other places in South India and then when we reached Chikmagalur, thought to see how many different activities can be done there. I have booked another tour through Thrillophilia before so we decided to book this package as well. The service was so good. The people who came with the team supported us very well. After the trekking we became really tired but the views from such a great height made our day.

The trek was amazing, a lot of people were there. Since there was transportation from Bangalore we did not have to worry about how will we reach the location. The guide has explained about the place in detail and the stay arranged by the service providers was actually good. We spent each minute in complete thrill.

Great place to watch the nature in fullest. The view from the top will amazed you. it was a meorable experience for the group. just the the trek was tiring but it was worth it. it rained and that made it more difficult but was also the best part. there were small streams and waterfall allover and a perfect place to enjoy with my friends. also a night stay was very refreshing away from the city. do this trek i am sure you will al love it like i did.

I have never experienced wind so strong that it could feel myself flying off the floor and this is what Mullayangiri will offer you. Now, don't worry - stay strong, hold on to people and things and climb the hill to get an amazing view.

One of the best hill station in the country ! Superb landscape and a breath taking view. The tallest peak of karanataka is indeed the most scenic mountain of south India. Awesome

Its a must see place in Chikmagalur, but trails are is very risky/dangerous for beginners the place is very windy. i would recommend do some small treks before you do this. but its worth the trek and the hieght the best part is after the trek, homestay at a locals house and really good homecooked food. thank you all for such a memorable trip.

Scary to climb the seetanilaya and going to wards mullayangiri. but the top view was awesoeme. we were a group of 8 office colleagues. it was really scary for me to come down as i am not at all an aexperience trekker. but the trek organizers were very helpful. in all we all had a very exciting weekend away from the office and really got a chance to bond

Mullayanagiri peak is a nice place but the trek route is very dangerous. We had to be very careful while trekking through the hill. there were No railings beside the foot trails for trekkers. the view is worth the risk of the climb really cool experience. the pleasnt view and a really chilled home stay was good. overall a very good experience

the trek was the best part of the chikmagalur trip. try to do the meditation in the caves of mullayanagiri for inner peace and serenity as part of the trek. special note- avoid weekends it is very crowded.

Man, Mullayanagiri is damn beautiful. It reminded me somewhat of Assam as its damn green. Loved making our way through thick-green pastures. Amazing experience. A beautiful place and fit for people of all fitness level.
