Mullayanagiri is the highest peak in Karnataka with a height of 6317 ft. Regarded as the highest peak between the Himalayas and Nilgiris, Mullayanagiri peak is one of the best treks in Karnataka. The peak gets its name from a small temple at the summit, which is dedicated to a sage Mullappa Swamy, who is believed to have meditated at the cave near the summit.
Save for a few steep ascents, the Mullayanagiri trek is quite a simple one. The trail passes through the serpentine forest with a cool breeze and the sound of birds chirping. Once at the Mullayanagiri peak, you’ll be awe-struck by the views the place offers. Mullayanagiri is known as the paradise of Karnataka. The breeze, cold winds, and white dense clouds make it beautiful like a mini version of the Himalayas.
