@Samurai: You need to go to the RFO at Kudremukh township to get a written permission. You will have to pay an entry fees of Rs.120 per person per day + fee of Rs.150 for a guide. A forest guard will accompany as a guide as we are not allowed to hike alone inside a N.P.
Before going callup the RFO at this number 08263255998 and tell them you need a permit for this date.
There are many hiking routes around Kudremukh N.P region. Please refer to the map below
Karnataka Wilderness Tourism - 13 trek routes - Kudremukh
I took the route from Mullodi to Kudremukha peak and back. For this route i had to take a permit from the RFO at Kudremukh township. the trek route actually starts at a place called Baglur on the SH between Khalsa and KIOCL. From the highway a country road leads to a village called Mullodi. This route is now converted to a muddy/slushy (heaven for offroading) road thanks to a small hydoelectirc power gen plant comming up at the base of the village. I was in no mood to walk this horrible stretch so took a jeep ride upto Mullodi. From Mullodi, Kudremukh peak is 20 kms up-down. This can be easily covered in one day if we start early from Mullodi (around 7). We are not allowed to camp anywhere inside the NP area, but we didnt come across any forest guards anywhere to stop us . the guard we were promised never turned up.. good for us.
Next time i want to do the Mullodi-KM-Navoor route. For this route one has to get a permit from RFO at Belthangady.

Absolutely brillaint sense of contrast, Rudra Sir.
This is probably what is called 'art of perfection' in being able able to articulate nature's true beauty through the lens.
