This is the second highest peak in Karnataka and is situated in the Kudremukh national park . The Kudremukh National is the second largest declared Wildlife Protected Area of a tropical wet evergreen type of forest in the Western Ghats. Kudremukh National Park is located in Udupi and Chikmagalore districts of Karnataka . A diverse assemblage of endangered large mammals is found in the park supporting three large mammal predator species Tiger, Leopard and Wild Dogs. The important Tiger prey base found within the Park is Gaur, Sambar, Wild Boar, Muntjac(Barking Deer), Chevrotain, Bonnet Macaque, Common Langur,Lion Tailed Macaque. The wet climate and the tremendous water retentive capacity of the shola grasslands and forests has led to the formation of thousands of perennial streams in the region converging to form three major rivers of the region, Tunga, Bhadra and Nethravathi.
