Gangadikal Peak is a mountain in the Kudremukh ranges of the Western Ghats, and it's not as well-explored as some other peaks in the area.

You get to see the entire Gangadikal ridge, the moment you start the trek right from the roadhead until you reach the summit. 

Climbing Gangadikal is both easy and a bit tricky. The peak is like a long ridge, and walking along it is like having an adventure of a lifetime.

There's a deep valley on both sides of the ridge, making the journey even more exciting. Once you reach the summit, you get a unique view of the Kudremukh range that you can't see from more famous peaks like Kudremukh itself. 

If you're lucky, you might even see animals like gaur, deer, and various birds that are common in the Western Ghats.

Going on the adventure of Gangadikal trek is a great experience for nature lovers and those who enjoy a bit of a challenge while exploring beautiful landscapes.

Highlights

Gangadikal Peak sits high up at 4806 feet, and the view from the top is absolutely amazing. 

Picture this: you look out and see these beautiful valleys covered in endless green shola forests on both sides. From the peak, you can see the expanse of Kudremuka forests on both the side. The never ending shola grasslands as far as the eyes can see, is a sight to behold.

On one side you can see the Kyatanmakki hills and on the other side you can see Kurinjal and Valikunja on clear days.
