Kodachadri is one of those peaks in the Western Ghats where clouds can be seen below the peak. A sea of clouds is captured by the eyes forever from the summit. This hike has it all, dense and perfect forests with high waterfalls, meadows spreading everywhere, a shear drop before the peak and a view of the twilight of the Arabian Sea form the point of sunset. Located in Mookambika National Park, it is home to many species of endangered and endemic flora and fauna.
