Madikeri is another very popular trekking destination which has been increasing in popularity among the adventure loving tourists who visit this region. One of the main reasons for its popularity has been not only the variety of trekking routes here, but also the verdant beauty surrounding these trekking trails. Tourists can choose from easy, leisurely treks which are well suited to those trying it for the first time or push themselves to their limit on some of the more challenging trekking trails in the region.
The peaks of Pushpagiri and Thadiyendamol are the highest peaks in Madikeri, standing at a height of 5626 and 5735 feet respectively. The steep sides of these peaks compensate for the lack of height which some experienced trekkers might see as a lesser challenge. These treks are a great way for tourists to experience the beauty of the diverse plant and animal life here. Do not forget your camera on any of these treks.
