only 10 people are allowed for trekking per day during off season . 100 people are allowed for trekking per day during season. toughest trek route in kerala Agasthyarkoodam peak is a 1868 meters high mountain The forests around this peak are abundant in rare medicinal plants. It has one of the richest biodiversity in the entire Western Ghats mountains. this 3 days trek is 19 kilometers on one side and that means you will have to walk 38 kilometers both sides. The last 5 kilometers is very steep climb and there are ropes for support. This trek passes through moist deciduous forests, semi ever green forests, grass lands, dense ever green forests, water falls and rock formations. Agasthyarkoodam is a pilgrimage centre for devotees of the Hindu sage Agasthya. There is a full-sized statue of Agasthya at the top of the peak. devotees offer pujas here.
