Postcards from the hills : Kumara Parvatha

Kumara Parvatha is considered as one of the toughest treks in south India, and I found out why, when my colleagues and I went there for a trek on the 30th of September 2016. I was very ill-prepared for the challenges, but thankfully I made it in the end. The trek was full of adventures and minor mishaps, so do click here to go through a more detailed account of this trek. This post though, is just about the journey through photographs. I hope you like it.

A couple of hours into the trek when we emerged out of the forests, the views started getting more and more surreal

The clouds were making everything look like a dynamic painting which was being created right in front of our very eyes

This was our lunch spot. It was tiring, but who cares when you have beautiful landscapes to look at all around you

View from the top of Kumara Parvatha, at 1712 meters from the sea level. The climb took almost 8 hours and the descent probably around 5. A trek I will never ever forget not just because it was challenging, but also because of the adventures and the memories attached to it

I have been woefully irregular with my posts these days, but I am starting my postcard series again. I will post photographs from my travels every Wednesday and Saturday. Stay tuned for more and have a great day!


  1. Nice clicks Animesh. Looking forward to trek there sometime soon!

    1. You must. Go around October, it will be lush green and very scenic. Beware of leeches though!

  2. You are really cruel to put up this pictures, and incite homicidal tendencies in over weight middle aged aunties like me. Though shall be banished to climb the next hill, on my behalf. :)

    1. finally my motive of inciting such toxic levels of hatred has come to life! To add some salt to your wounds, let me tell you that I am climbing my next hill tomorrow itself.
      Jokes apart, thank you so much for your 'well disguised' appreciation :)
