The rains had just cleared up when I dropped in for a couple of days. The jungle camp had lovely weather and is most picturesque, by the Sowparnika river. It's about a kilometer off the main road, but quiet and I was the only guest on that weekday.

The staff was wonderfully courteous and the Manager, Rajnikant, most helpful. Very lucky to see the Great Indian Hornbill and lots of other bird species, including the hill myna, minivets, babblers and Malabar whistling thrush (though the Malabar Trogon could only be heard in the distance).
A neat little trek in the afternoon, as well, followed by an evening at the temple just made my day.
The only dampener was that there were mosquitoes in the daytime, but I understand that was because of the unseasonal rain. Overall, a hugely recommended place for the enthusiastic wildlifer.
If however you aren't quite the wildlife sort, do give the place a miss, you will not take value from the vacation.

Amazing place, so peaceful and relaxing. And we visited at the best time too. No rains and the weather was overall nice. The views are amazing of you stop at regular intervals to look around.

Meine Hauptmotivation, hier hinzufahren, wurde ziemlich getroffen: Vom Touristenstrom (besonders dem weißen/westlichen) fern sein und auf meinem Indienurlaub auch mal ein bisschen Natur in Ruhe genießen.

Kollur/Kolluru ist ein kleines Dorf im Dschungel das von der Bahnstation Baindoor/Baindur/Bynduru/... an der Küste mit der Rikscha/dem Taxi (preislich kein Unterschied) 400 Rupien entfernt ist und mitten im Mookambika Wildlife Sanctuary liegt, welches laut örtlicher Quellen Tiger, Elefanten, Leoparden, Rock Pythons und mindestens eine vom aussterben bedrohte Affenart haben soll. Hiervon etwas auf den bewanderten Pfaden zu sehen, scheint aber eher unwahrscheinlich.

Wer hoch zum Kodachadri Peak will hat hauptsächlich zwei Optionen: Man bucht einen Jeep für 2000 Rupien, der mit so 6 Passagieren befüllt wird, also alleine ist man da auch jeden Fall schonmal nicht. Hauptsächlich fahren hiermit die zu dem sich auf Kodachadri befindlichen Tempel pilgernden indischen Familien.

Oder, Option 2: Man fragt den Forest Ranger nach einem Pass für den Wald, sodass man alleine da reindarf (wenn mich meine Erinnerung korrekt bedient, 100 Rupien pro Nase) wir haben den Ranger allerdings nicht ausfindig machen können und sind auch ohne Pass unbehelligt den Berg hochgekommen. Man fährt also im Bus (Richtung am Informationsdesk in der Nähe von Kollurs Mookambika Tempel ausfragen) ein ganz schönes Stück den Berg hoch und lässt sich dann am Straßenrand bei einem Trampelpfad ins Dickicht aussetzen und macht sich zu Fuß weiter. Der Weg ist unfehlbar solange man sich nach einer Weile bei ein zwei Weggabelungen an dem höchsten Gipfel am Horizont orientiert. Auf dem Weg gibts immer Mal ein zwei kleinere Trampelpfade ins DIckicht, die sich zu erkunden lohnen könnten. Nach einer Weile wird es lichter (mehr gerodete Flächen) und man kommt an einem Eisentor samt Stromleitung vorbei (siehe Bilder). Hier ist eine kleine EcoVillage, es sieht sehr Auenland-esque aus. Als wir 04/2018 da waren, war das Dorf im Bau, falls jemand das fertig gebaute EcoVillage vorfindet, PM me please :-).
Zurück auf dem Weg kommt man ein ganz schönes Stück weiter zum Camp in der Nähe des Gipfels, wo auch die Jeeps hinfahren und es "Trinkwasser", Melonen und Suppe gibt.

We stumbled on this accidentally and by far this was one of the best stay during our trip. Staffs are friendly and attentive. Great home style food, they turn all the lights by 10:00 pm as it's a jungle, they do have generator back up. May not be great during rainy season as it's located in the forest and you only have tents. Great place for chilling with friends and family.

Though there is nothing much to visit or do in Mookambika Wildlife sanctuary, the drive through the sanctuary is amazing especially during monsoon. The roads are narrow, but good enough for the feeble traffic there. You can see multiple waterfalls during monsoon. Its on the Kollur - Shimoga rout, few mins away from kollur town.

At the entrance to Mookambika Wildlife Sanctuary on the Sampekatte-Kollur Road, there's a forest office where they charge you a paltry INR 100 for entrance to the "forest".
The "quickly arrange for a jeep" that charge another 2000 for the ride to and fro and a 120 minutes stopover to Kodajadri or Kudajadri and the driver will insist that "no other vehicle can reach there"

(If you have an SUV with decent ground clearance you should be able to drive the distance yourself)

The smarter thing to do however is to reach up to the Kodajadri jeep stand, closer to the kodajadri hills, where the racket of these jeep drivers can be avoided.

The ride up the hill (as most others who have travelled here has said) is quite bumpy, to say the least and is not recommended for those with a lumbar or back condition. You may want to trek up this 8km stretch.

There are a couple of things to do here - for the religious minded there are two non-descript temples and farther up, at the top of the hill, a landing where the Hindu Guru Sankaracharya had found conclusions to intellectual debates - (not to be confused with the concept of "moksha" or "nirvana")
We did not find a tea stall like the similar spots in north of India - so make sure you carry your own supplies.
My GPS recorded 1302 mt - whereas the forest officer and drivers are quick to tell you that this is 1850mts above sea level. Wiki says its 1343 mts which is more likely authentic.

In any case, this attraction has nothing much to write home about. You do not get to see any wildlife here, except some monkeys and birds, and definitely do not believe the forest department (government) employees here - they will give you any cock & bulll story.

Its a nice trek otherwise.

ai visité la jungle avec une famille qui se consacre à la culture et à la cueillette des plantes destinées à la médecine aryuvédique. Nous avons ainsi pu voir le coraza ou corasa : l'arbre dont l'écorce sert à lutter contre le cancer, les racines pour fabriquer le remède contre les morsures de serpents et beaucoup d'autres merveilles dont la nature est prodigue pour la santé de l'être humain, si seulemet il voulait le reconnaître . L'excursion a été organisée par Monsieur Pradeep, le propriétaire de l'hôtel ABIMON

The Mookambika wildlife sanctuary is approachable from Udupi, the road (state highway, I suppose), lighting is zero along the highway, as anywhere in India. You'll understand the seriousness of driving through pitch-darkness wildlife notified motorable road, once you look behind your car, and see not a trace of light.
There is a non-descript gate but clearly no fences to stop animals.
Board displays tiger, bear...etc..., but are they really inside?

The travel to kudajadri peak, which is well known as the place where the great sankaracharya was enlightened buy godess saraswathy. This place is inside the mookambika wildlife sanctuary, you have take a jeep to reach there, very bumpy ride, after the jeep ride you have to walk to rach the peak. Nice and must see location for adventure and trekking lovers, if you want more you can walk through the jungle buy pass the road and it is a very good experiance, try to walk on day time, it is more safe.
