What Our Travellers Say?

Coorg, as a part of its never-ending beauty and wonders, brings to you it’s the highest point: Tadiandamol, a trek to at an altitude of 5735 feet. This stunning peak is surrounded by the greenery and expanses of the Shola forests, which are broken by the beautiful blueness of the water bodies that cut through it. The word Tadiandamol in Kannada actually means a big mountain, which is what it exactly is.

The starting point of this trek is Nalakanad Palace, which will take you through a wide expanse of colors, sights and smells that you have never experienced before. Once you make it all the 5735 feet to the top, you are going to be rewarded by the company of nature which will include flowers, snails, trees, streams, and butterflies. Following this gorgeous walk amidst nature, you will return back to the homestay and can enjoy the company of your new trek family!

Tadiandamol Trek - Two Day Itinerary

Day 0Depart for Tadiandamol

An overnight bus journey of 300 km commences from Bangalore to Coorg. We shall have a brief orientation followed by a fun-filled ice-breaking session where you will get to know your fellow trekkers better.

Day 1Trek to Tadiandamol

Since you are far away from the hustle-bustle of the city now, it is time to forget all the worries that you stress about every day and get ready for the two most peaceful days of your life. Your entire group will reach the campsite early on in the day and after arrival, will take part in a wonderful breakfast and freshening up session.

Coorg Trek - Plan The Unplanned 10

The trek will start from the base village of Kakkabe which hosts the starting point of the trek that is Nalakand Palace. This starting point is 4 km away from the main road and has a curvy and slightly tricky road to navigate. Once the road to the actual trail begins, it is fairly easy to navigate and follow, even for beginners. On the road up, you will come across a waterfall and a number of streams that will be a feast for your eyes! The animals that will pass you by on this trail will range from tiny butterflies to snails. These animals will be surrounded by the fresh greenness of the surrounding forests and the calm blue of the sky.

During the journey, you will come across the Big Rock which is where you can enjoy your meal as well as take a lot of pictures of each other! Make the most of this time as it has some of the most beautiful panoramic views you have seen in your entire life.

Coorg Trek - Plan The Unplanned 4

The steep ascent up to False Point might make you feel a little out of breath but it will be totally worth it when you see the gorgeous view of the forest cover from the point. Following this point, the trail will get narrow and steeper but it will be well compensated by the beautiful blowing flowers you will see on either side.

You will start the descent back to the base camp and will finish the trek by 6 in the evening. That in no way means that the fun has ended, in fact, it has just begun. You will be provided with the lovely traditional Coorg meals which can be eaten alongside the big bonfire.

Coorg Trek - Plan The Unplanned 7

With 300 residing monks within the premises, you might just get lucky to attend one of their prayer sessions, which is beyond mystical.

Coorg Trek - Plan The Unplanned 12

The return journey back to Bangalore will begin soon after this visit.

Join us on this wonderful trek to this gorgeous place to forget behind all of the worries that haunt you in your daily lives. The minute you set sights on the waterfalls and lush greenery that Coorg has to offer you, we assure you that your problems will be more than 5735 feet away from you!

Really Enjoyed Tadiandamol monsoon trek with PTU. This was my first solo trek but it didn’t looked like that not even once in the entire trek. The trek leaders Rahul and Anu were awesome. Had a memorable experience with each and every person on the trek. Loved it.

I recently completed my monsoon trek (Tadiandamol). It was a really awesome experience. The trek leads Rahul and Anu were really nice and took care of things really well. It was raining throughout but felt more like an adventure. It was inspiring to see Rahul and Anu how they helped the entire group to complete and enjoy the trek. So thank you for making the trip really awesome, thank you PTU.

Trek – Tadiandamol, Coorg.
Whole experience was distinctly amazing, specially the trek leads were quite enthusiastic and friendly which made it more fun. I loved the way introductions were initiated with some interesting activities in the start of trip, so that people can know each other and get comfortable.
Food and stay were up to the mark. Rains during the trek took it to another level.
Memories for lifetime, very much recommended!!!
