Trek to Kakkabe
Kakkabe which is 40 km from Madikere provides access to this highest peak in Coorg.Viewing Coorg from the tip of the peak is amply rewarding for those who access it to the point.
Heterogonous plants in Semi-Evergreen Forest. Attractive 'Chelavra' Waterfalls in Kakkabe...
Our Halting Place... Our team busy with preparing food for night.
We stayed in the lap of nature at the foot of the Kakkabbe peak. This place offers panoramic view of the valley. The early morning view from this place is one which we can never forget.
Along your trek get to experience native forest, high grasslands, ridge walking, mountain, paddy and coffee plantation terrain both in panoramic views. Coorg Coffee... About 2 km by road from Kakkabe is the Padi Iggutappa temple. Dedicated to Lord Murga it is located at Padi near Ayyangeri forest in Padithara valley. The Temple resembles most of the ancient Keralite temples, in style and is the most important temple of Kodagu. 5 km from Kakkabe is an important historical landmark Nalaknad an old palace build as a Hunting lodge called 'Nalku Naadu Aramane' .
