Bhramanti is embarking on its first ever trek/exploration in the
Western Ghat Region of Southern India.

About Kudremukh Range (karnataka)
Located about 100 km from Chikmagalur, 130 km from Mangalore and 350 km from
Bangalore, Kudremukh is part of the Kudremukh National Park in Karnataka.
Kudremukh National Park is spread partly over the thick hilly forests near
the coastal plains on the western portion and the shola vegetation on the
Western Ghats uplands, covering parts of 3 districts, viz., Chickmagalur,
Udupi and Dakshina Kannada. The Kudremukh peak by which the National Park
derived its name, is the highest elevation at 1892 meters.
Special features of Kudremukh National Park (KNP)
KNP is made of steep hills and valleys. The hills, which bear the brunt of
the severe monsoon wind, preclude any tree growth as a result the landscape
is covered with grass. The valleys which are tucked in, have reasonable
protection from wind and a deep soil profile, as a result of which stunted
evergreen forests exist creating an unique microclimate, rich with mosses,
orchids, etc. The whole scenery of grassland interspersed with narrow strips
of forests provide a fantastic vista for a trekker. The totally fresh air
and the climb up and down, invigorates the body and soothes the soul.
During the trek, one can view and study several wildlife species of plants,
birds, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies, insects, etc.
