Trekking details

To reach the top of the beautiful Chembra Peak, you need to follow a trekking route. Here is detailed information about the trek. The topmost peak is situated near the Chembra Lake which is shaped like a heart. The route passes through the grasslands and dense forests and it is very adventurous to reach the destination. It takes almost two hours to climb the hill and get to the top. Whether alone or with a group you can trek there as there are many guides to make you experience this wonderful adventure. Start your journey at about 7:30 a.m after having some light breakfast. You would not be allowed to reach the summit presently due to some restrictions laid by the Meppady forest department. The point near the lake is regarded as the highest point presently in trekking journey. You need to carry things required for trekking in hills such as a cap, trekking shoes (good comfortable shoes are recommended as the route is quite steep and tough), comfortable dresses and obviously water bottles. Always pay attention to the guide is instructing. Charges for trekking are 500 INR for a grouping of 10 members while it is 1000 INR for the foreigners.

Why Chembra peak for trekking

It is awesome trekking route, just the one people search for. After trekking for two to three hours when you climb the top, all your tiredness will go away when you immerse yourself into nature’s beauty. The weather and environment seem to be enchanting as the fog and misty clouds come and hug you. The water in the lake would give a refreshing view and you would feel like flying soul. It is short trekking route, although a bit difficult but the reward you will get after reaching the height is worth the journey. Camping all overnight is not allowed due to some wildlife threats. Winter is the best season to go there.

Overall, the Chembra Peak Trek is quite challenging, so you must have a daring attitude and a strong will to reach your destination. It is an ideal gateway for the adventurous hearts as the trekking route covers intense jungle area and steep rocky paths. Avoid visiting there is a rainy season as the descending route could be slippery.

But it is not as hard that you would be afraid. Beginners can also try it as helpful guides are there to make your trip a successful one.
