Hola Trekkers!

Nestled in the heart of the Agumbe rain forest is the majestic highest peak of Narasimha Parvatha. The interesting thing about this mountain is the trek trail through the rain forest with contrasting shades like grasslands, thick sholas, streams that take about 6 hours to climb. The gush of Barkana waterfalls formed by a huge plunge of Sita rover into a deep valley amidst thick forest makes it more intriguing for trekkers.

Narasimhaparvatha is a precious pearl of a mountain in the Western Ghats of Karnataka where there’s plenty of wildlife with a high chance of bumping into trekkers. As a result, this trek is highly protected by Forest Dept. and is open only for 2 to 3 months of a year which makes it even more precious.

Don’t miss the small little window this year.
Dream big to summit an amazing mountain that is Narasimhaparvatha.

Come, challenge yourself and #GetMuddie this December!
