Gadayi kallu - Kadamgundi Waterfalls Trek
Escape from the loud noises and endless wait for light to turn Green, crucial way to stay sane over long weekend was to GO GREEN.
With Everest base Camp just two weeks away, I need to stretch a bit too.
Well balanced trip with excitement, challenge, and of-course, luxuriate in the soothing & sleepy hamlet.
Apart from endurance test of Gadaikallu/Jamalabad's steep climb, thanks to the drizzle, the most interesting part was to tackle the slippery decent.
Few leeches were no hindrance for the excitement of cross several small streams to reach Kadama Gundi Waterfalls. Even after an hour the greed to stay on rock, just under the falls, says how much "we" enjoyed.
With healthy and hearty meals 3 times one can hardly complain, many thanks to our host..!
Thanks to the all A’s and rest in the group, they were most amicable and affable.
Thanks to Vishwanath for everything, I am sure he had taken care of everything, few of which we would have overlooked.

I had heard about the beauty of Western Ghats. Hailing from Kolkata it was my first trek in Ghats , I had a lot of fun , other than trekking, I also enjoyed the waterfall, camp fire, camping in tent and the games during leisure and it was a perfect weekend. The trek guide Mr. Vishwanath was really helpful throughout the journey. Overall it was a wonderful experience. Looking forward to many more treks in the future : )

Kudremukh and Baamikonda – Kalchukki Trek
We are always on the lookout for something different wherever we travel. After our work related trip to Bangalore, we had a weekend to spare. We decided to do a trek in the Western Ghats and came to know about Summiters.
The Kudremukh and Baamikonda – Kaalchukki trek provided a wonderful opportunity to explore the Western Ghats. Summiters, too provided a relaxing atmosphere for both new and experienced trekkers. Their on-trek co-ordination and other arrangements like stay and food were absolutely amazing. The way they encouraged the newbies to complete the trek is quite commendable.
The trek itself was one of the most beautiful trails of Western Ghats. The vast stretches of green were all so captivating. We are in awe of the Western Ghats. Will be looking forward to more treks in this region with the Summiters and enrich our experience.

"It is the people besides the nature that make a trek really memorable. There is great excitement and enthusiasm amongst the participants of this trek (and others I have been part of) and Summiters goes the extra mile in ensuring the camaraderie of the group even though some of them may not know each other before. Things like the mandatory intros and trek summary briefings before the trek and group photo at designated points in the trek goes a long way in keeping the group spirit high besides ensuring no one gets left behind. Bammikonda-Kalchukki trek is also nice in that it has something that both beginners to experienced trekkers can enjoy and have an experience to look forward to. The Breakfast and packed lunch for the trek was really good and so was the hospitality of the camp site owners at Bammikonda. The pictures will tell you the story...."

Kudremukh & Baamikonda - Kalchukki Trek
I have known Mr. Vishwanath and his Adventure company Summiters for almost 3 years from now. The treks and other event programs that Summiters conduct is so inviting that it lures anyone to join.
It is very safe and enjoyable to trek with Summiters, as they hire well knowledgeable porters/guides, provide decent accommodation with good quality food, along with taking us to exotic places. Summiters is like a Pandora box full of surprises and I have done many treks with them in a short term like Kudremukh , Baamikonda-Kalchukki , Kurinjal , Belligundi and Gangamoola etc., and will be doing much more in the future as well.

Baamikonda - Kalchukki Trek
Being from Ranchi , Jharkhand I came to Bengaluru for my MBA. Here on weekends when you actually want to do something productive but being new to city you find it difficult to have similar kind of people.
Baamikonda - Kalchukki trek - 2 days proved to be very memorable for me. It not only helped me to find my true life love for trekking but also admire the enthusiasm which SUMMITERS showed to me for being the first time trekker .The friends I made , the stay , the company around , the food , the arrangements , the perfectly planned event actually helped me to enjoy more. I always craved to go for trekking and SUMMITERS actually helped me out to fulfill my desire to do something different.

Myself and my daughter along with friends were craving for a weekend outing to a exotic locale in Western Ghats . Upon strong recommendation from my beloved friend Dr. Yoganand approached Mr. Vishwanath. He promised and believe me after a 6 hour journey in the ghats landed at a paradise unheard. The vivid hills , the call of whistling thrush , Misty mountains and getting drenched in the monsoon rain , pristine waterfalls rejuvenated me . I was moved by the Hospitality of host and kindness. Overall the trip with Summiters was excellent. I whole heartedly thank all and look forward for more !
