Trek to the highest peak in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu

Gutirayan Peak trek is not among the best-known treks in the south. However, when our exploration team got the opportunity to go on this one, they were amazed by it. To come across such variety on a day trip close to Hosur was truly remarkable. 

Within a span of four hours, it takes you through dense forest, a lake, and a perfect summit climb.

Gutirayan Peak is the highest point in the Krishnagiri district. The panoramic view from this summit is a rewarding experience. You get a bird’s eye view of the entire region of Krishnagiri. All your exhaustion from trekking to reach here dies away once you reach the top.

Apart from this great view, on the Gutirayan Peak trek, trekkers get the opportunity to trek through thick forests. These evergreen forests on this trek are so dense that they can give tough competition to a Western Ghats trek in Karnataka!

This trek is in official partnership with the Tamil Nadu Wilderness Experiences Corporation (TNWEC)

Trekking through the heart of the Denkanikottai Forest in the Krishnagiri district, you will be transported to another world. You'll be in the middle of a natural wonderland with bird calls all around you, butterflies fluttering about, and sunlight magically filtering through the trees.
