Our initial plan was to go to Kemmangundi, but since we did not find any accomodation in the homestays or resorts of our choice, we decide to goto Kudremukh. Of course Kudremukh is not as good as Kemmandagundi , but still we enjoyed a lot. This township was built for the Government owned Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Limited (KIOCL) for its activities. Mining have been stopped now and a National Park have been set up with name Kudremukh National Park. The town is sorrounded by lofty peaks and dense forests on all sides. Kudremukh is in Chikmaglur district.

Inspite of thousands of tourists visiting Mysore its still a clean place.
