An ultimate destination for the sportiest is the Coorg Hills, which offer hiking, cross-country and motoring down mountain trails. The Kodagu region is full of trekking trails. The best season to trek is from October to the beginning of February. The other well-trodden trekking trails in Kodagu are in the Brahmagiri ranges of South Kodagu, where a forest trail leads from Iruppu Falls to the Brahmagiri peak. Another interesting trail leads to Pushpagiri (1712m), which is Kodagu's second highest peak. It can be climbed via the village of Heggademane to the north of Madikeri. The favourite places for trekking are the Nagarhole National Park along with the Irpu and Abbi Falls. Another favourite locale for trekking is near one of the most magnificent temples at Bhagamandala, the place where the Cauvery, after descending the Brahmagiri Mountain, meets with the Sujoythi and the Kanike rivers. Visitors can trek to the top of Tadeyendamol, the highest peak in the region and view the Arabian Sea at a distance. Or else, one may simply follow the mountain trails dotted with little shrines-some beside waterfalls and others on the banks of rivers. The Coorg hills offer enthralling views of lush green valleys of abundant rosewood, silver oak and cascading waterfalls.
