If time allows, then travellers passing through Chikmagalur should explore Mullayangiri Range that is the highest peak in Karnataka. This range lies in the Western Ghats, in the Baba Budan Giri. Mullayanagiri Range is situated at an elevation of 1930 m above sea level.
From the Himalayas to Nilgiris, the Mullayanagiri has been recorded as the highest peak, just behind Chembra, Banaura and Vellari Mala peaks. The temperature of this site ranges from 20°C to 25°C. In order to reach the top of Mullayangiri Range, travellers can commence their trekking from Sarpadaari.
Upon reaching the top, tourists can visit a temple that is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Apart from trekking, people can undertake other adventure-based activities like road biking and mountain biking.
