Hai Santhosh V
i have finished visiting karnataka last week you can see my travelogue for more details My Trip To Karnataka
I think this is the best season to visit jog falls.
kodachadri is not the place for trekking its also a pilgrim spot
It is suituted some 25-30 Kms from kollur mokambigai temple.
A Small Story-Once we know a saint named AATHISANKARAR was doing some offering and pooja for THAI MOOKAMBIGAI to take the god along with him towards kerala.
but the goddess MOOGAMBIGA gave him a condition that AADISANKARAR should not turn back and so goddess will be following him to kerala. but when AADISANKARAR heard a sound of KOLUSU which ladies would be wearing in thier leg.so the AADISANKARAR suddenly turned back and saw so THAI MOOKAMBIGAI settled at the place called kollur.
from the top of the kodachadri one can easily spot the kollur temple.
TO REACH KODACHADRI
route kollur to kodachadri -25 kms APPROXIMATE
shimoga- kodachadri 100 kms via hosanagara nagara and before reaching kollur 20 kms take left towards kodachadri about seven kms you can move with your car and rest 7 kms you have to take hire a jeep for RS 900 otherwise if you have some SUV you can move with yours.
First you reach towards a temple there and from there you have to go trekking about 3 kms, there is the orginal place were AATHISANKARAR meditated. from there you can see the kollur MOOKAMBIGA temple.
please check that if your parents can climb there i visited kodachadri last year it was a wonderful experience.
i think you wont be able to trek due to rain.
