Summary:

Ombattu Gudda is a peak at about 971 meters above sea level, and at a distance of about 20 kms from Gundiya Checkpost, inside the Kabbinhole Reserved Forest. The peak is so named because there are 9 prominent humps on top, almost in a straight line (Ombattu in Kannada means nine, while Gudda means hill).

Ombattu Gudda peak is an uphill trek of approximately 6 hours from Gundiya checkpost. The trek starts along the NH27 for about an hour and then we say good-bye to civilization. The initial route winds along a jeep track where you would come across interesting wildlife and pebbled Kabbihole river! The path mostly goes along a stream where we can practice some diving. The forest is extremely virgin with huge bamboos and dense foliage playing host to a range of wildlife from the tiger, leopard, jungle cat, barking deer to gaur, sloth bear and, of course, the wild elephant.
