During the monsoon, pools of clouds hover over the hill of Kumara Parvatha, during winter, the entire hill takes the shades of orange and summers are hot. There are two trekking routes to reach the camping ground of Kumara Parvatha Hill- one being Somwarpet and other Kukke Subramanya.
Both the routes have plenty of waterfalls and an abundance of greenery. Watching the sunrise from atop has been the favourite activity among people who hike up the hill. Camping is not allowed at the peak so while you visit the forest department to pay and enter the trek route, you have to leave your gears behind.
You can camp near or next to the forest department or at Manscape. The hiking trail on the Somwarpet route goes around a 6 to 7 KM (one side) deep forest patch with multiple waterfalls. The 16 KM trail from Subramanya to Kumara Parvatha peak is filled with meadows and views of the western ghats making the long route exceptionally beautiful.
