Chikmagalur has a fascinating story behind its etymology. The literal meaning of the word is ‘the young daughter’s town’ derived from the fact that Chikmagalur was offered as a dowry to the younger daughter of the Chief of Sakrepatna, Rukmangada. Set against the backdrop of the majestic Mullayangir ranges, Chikmagalur also happens to be the ‘Coffee Land of Karnataka’. The serene environment is enriched with tea and coffee plantations, set in the backdrop of captivating cloudy hilltops at an elevation of 3,400 ft. Amidst the hills, away from the commercial and bustling cities, Chikmagalur is the perfect weekend getaway to escape to and be in the laps of nature. Whether you are a thrill enthusiast or a nature lover, there’s always something for you to do in the city. With numerous cascading waterfalls and the rugged terrain, go for a hike or take a dip in the waters, you will have plenty to explore.

On the way there are lots of private coffee estates which you can run into, a river which is flowing by, small roads where there is no tar instead all green, drizzles dripping on you, fresh air that is not polluted. dive into the chilling water and enjoy the most serene yet most amazing waterfall moment with your newly made friends.

We are a group of passionate travellers who firmly believe that travel is not a luxury. Travelling is about growing up, believing in what you love and working hard enough to get it, learning and experiencing new things and constantly educating yourself. Travelling is knowing that there is no obstacle big enough in this world to stop you from being happy. Why Tripper Trails? There are hundreds of travel companies to choose from. But why go tripping with Tripper Trails? 1.Because we are ‘by travellers, for travellers’ We introduce you to the best and the off-beat places that may not be found by usual tourists. We research exclusively on the places chosen by you, consider reviews and feedback from people, especially travel bloggers who have visited the place and plan your itinerary. This way, we ensure that you do not see a picture of a place you had been to and say, “Damn, why did I not find it out earlier?” 2.You matter! You, yes, you are the priority. It’s your trip but our responsibility to ensure that you have the best tale to narrate. We customize your itinerary to suit your ways, whatever you want. You want to be on a lazy vacation or go restaurant hopping? Or trek to a far off mountain or feel your adrenaline rush? Or just explore the unexplored. All you have to do is tell us what you need and relax! We will take care of it. 3.No compromise on quality When we say travelling is not a luxury, we mean it. We don’t intend to put a dent on your pocket but that doesn’t mean we compromise with the quality. Offering the highest standards with the best possible price is simply our forte! 4.Practising what we preach! While many companies promise to revert back within 24 hours, we actually do it. Any query you have at any point of time, ask away!
This is my first solo trip with Trippertrails and i must say both the captains are very friendly and take care of each and everything during the whole trip from starting till the end of the trip (Chikkmanglur). I am back with good memories and new friends and looking forward to join other trips as well.
Thankyou Trippertrails for successfully completing this trip.
Go for it guys.
One the best trip I ever had with strangers and yes it was crazy and fun as expected. Shoutout to Amit, our trip captain who just raised the bar of every place with his everlasting energy and fun attitude.
Opted for group travel after 4+ years, but it was amazing!
The foremost credit for the same has to go to captain of the trip Mr. Amit, absolutely amazing human being, fun, witty all the points needed for ensuring group of strangers mix and have a good time.
Our group was absolutely amazing too, had people from different states, different ages, different background but it was absolute thrill!
I can write many points in the favour of Tripper Trails, Mr. Amit, and our group, but reading and experiencing is not the same, so I strongly recommend instead of reading this review, go join a group of tripper trails trip, have fun! 😀🎉

"It isn't how much time you spend in a place for sight seeing that makes it memorable, but It's how and whom you spend the time with." Just give your time and days to Tripper Trails, and they will make sure you get the best out of those. A well coordinated group of Captains leading you all along throughout, ensuring that you enjoy each second of your journey. Even though we went in a group of 3, came back in a group of 20+ taking a lot of good memories to treasure for the rest of our lives😇. Well coordinated, good hospitality, safety ensured with crazy memories, many more to say..... Thank you Captains, Mr Amit, Mr Vinay and Mr Prathik . Enjoyed the trip to its each inch.
