About Kodachadri

Kodachadri is a mountain peak in the Western Ghats, in the Indian state of Karnataka. Set at an elevation of 1343 m, Kodachadri has a dense forest covering the entire base region, while the peak itself is largely barren owing to the strong winds inherent to the height. Declared a national heritage site by the Karnataka Government, Kodachadri sits in the middle of the Mookambika National Park, and has a thriving diversity of flora and fauna within its confines. Some important examples include the Malabar Langur, the Malabar Pied Hornbill, Malabar Grey Hornbill, and the Indian Leopard, Tiger, and Hyena. The forest area at the base, in addition to several smaller peaks on the trek up the actual one renders it invisible from ground level. Interestingly enough, despite the arduous effort it takes to traverse across the terrain, apparently Kodachadri has been a well frequented site since ancient times. Evidence of this can be gauged from the monolithic structures located within the vicinity, albeit fairly eroded in unison with the land, as a result of natural aging. The peak of Kodachadri also finds itself as the setting of a number of myths and fables resulting in the erection of monuments in commemoration. The mother goddess Mookambika is believed to have vanquished the demon Mookasura on this very mountain. The famed sage Adishankara is believed to have meditated on this peak. The first European exploration of the region took place in the 19thcentury, when Lewin Bentham Bowring, Commissioner of Mysore between 1862 and 1870 trekked across the entire expanse and went on to document rather eloquently the tranquil beauty and bountiful biodiversity he found. Since then there have been established several trekking routes to the top, a popular one starting at Nagodi, a village in close proximity to the wilderness at the base of the forest area that envelopes the foot of the mountain.
