Merthi gudda or merthi parvatha is a beautiful hill-station near Sringeri and is situated in c hikmagalur district. It is around 260 km away from Bengaluru.
It is the highest peak in the range from where one can have a beautiful panoramic view of surrounding forest, mountains, streams and villages. the trek is bit tricky and the plantations are very slippery. I Suggest not to try this in monsoon season.
The best time to visit is post monsoon and this being a naxlite area, you have to have a localite with you. It lies in the Merthi-khan estate.
Sringeri, Sirimane falls and Kundadri hills are the nearby places to visit.
There is a house in a village called arehalla where one can get food, accomodation and a guide also. Merthi gudda is around 15km from this place. If you want any more information contact Subramanya : 9986516471
