Kudremukh National Park KarnatakaOne of the newest entrants in the National Park list (2 Sep, 1987), the Kudremukh National Park has been named after the eponymous peak that is shaped like a horse face. The Kudremukh town adjacent to the park is primarily an iron ore-mining town where the government-owned Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Limited (KIOCL) operates.

The Kudremukh region records an average annual rainfall of 7,000 mm and the wet climate has resulted in the formation of thousands of streams in the region converging to form three major rivers of the region, Tunga, Bhadra and Nethravathi. The Kadambi waterfalls are a major attraction of the Kudremukh National Park.

Kudremukh is a trekker's paradise with a number of trekking routes winding through undulating hills. One has to obtain an entry permit for trekking inside the park from the Range Officers or Deputy Conservator of Forests.
