    • It is located in the Chikmagalur district, sandwiched between Samse and Belathangady.
    • The trek gets its name from the Netravati River, which originates at the base of the Netravati peak.
  2. Trail Highlights:

    • Rolling Shola Grasslands: Throughout the trek, you’ll encounter rolling shola grasslands on all sides. These high-altitude grasslands and shrublands are typical of the Western Ghats.
    • Cloud Play: Witness clouds playing hide and seek with the stunning views of rolling hills. During monsoons, the southwest monsoon winds create magical scenery as they rise along the slopes.
    • Dense Shola Forests: Trek through dense shola forests filled with diverse flora and fauna.
  3. Trail Sections:

    • Section I: Trek from the forest office to the 2-tier waterfalls.
      • Distance: 2.5 km

      • Gradual ascents and descents lead to the waterfalls, which serve as your drinking water source.
    • Section II: Walk along the canal to the stream crossing from the 2-tier waterfall.
    • Section III: Trek from the stream to the Netravati Peak.
      • The trail offers excellent views of prominent peaks like Kudremukh and Rani Jhari.
      • Clouds rise from the valley, creating a surreal atmosphere.
  4. Views and Scenery:

    • From the summit, you’ll see clouds enveloping the rolling hills, with Kudremukh Peak on your right and Rani Jhari on your left.
    • The ever-changing cloud patterns during monsoons make it one of the best places in Karnataka to enjoy cloudscapes.
  5. Challenges and Rewards:

    • The trek is suitable for fit beginners but will test endurance.
    • The sense of accomplishment and the panoramic views make it worthwhile.
  6. Best Time to Visit:
