Kurinajal,in South Kanara in Western Karnataka.
his peak is almost at the height of Kudremukh. It is about 20+kms from Kudremukh colony and about 10+kms from the main road to Kudremukh colony. The point where you start is about 9kms from kudremukh colony. First route, You will get down before you reach the colony after the Bhagavati forest check post, and the other route starts from village called "MaLa". where the former route takes you in a jeepable track the later is through thickets of the jungle typical to Western Ghats.
There is an old abandoned UHF receiver station here at the top, but the water is available at 1km distance downhill. If lucky you may find Bisons strolling around.
note: Since the whole area is now inside the Kuduremukh National Park, one is not allowed to stay here. And stay inside anywhere the national park is not entertained without prior permission.
