MugiluPete(Mandalapatti)-Kodagu District




I  and my friends from the VVIET college went to MugiluPete, Pushpagiri wildlife sanctuary and Dubare  which are near to Madikeri.

Mugilupete(Mandalapatti):

MugiluPete (Mugilpete) is around 20-30kms from Madikeri. This place is popularly known as Mandalpatti. It is called as "Mugilupete" due to Kannada film "Galipata". MugiluPete is very cold & almost all the place is covered by mist.

This place comes near to Somwarpete town. Mandala Patti is one of the trekking points in Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary or Pushpagiri Forest Range. Pushpagiri Forest Range spreads from Subrahmanya in Dakshina Kannada district to Somwarpet in Coorg district covering an area of 102.6 sq km. Kumara Parvata Peak stands the tallest amongst the peaks in Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary.

The route is adventurous, with steep curves and zigzag tracks, and Abbi Falls lies along the way. As the roads leading to MandalPatti are narrow, ones who have decided to make it to the beautiful spot need to be a bit adventurous too. But the adventure is worth for the way to the spot is dotted with nature’s bounty as one passes through viewing lush green coffee estates, paddy fields and mountains.


There is an entrance fees (Rs.40 per head/now it is increased to 200) near the view-point (mantapa). If you feel it costly, you can climb any of the adjacent small hills to have an equivalent view. You can camp in this place with the prior permission.

Famous Kannada movie “Galipata” has been shot here. In that film they have shown this place as Mugilu Pete. So after that Mandalpatti became famous as Mugilupete. Only 1 song “Nadhim Ta Na” and last seen of Galipata has been shot here. Many other Kannada films like "Modala Sala", "Raj" has been shot here.


You can watch the video about Mandalpatti in youtube.

There is no food facility in Mugilupete.
Accommodation: Madikeri
Best time to visit is 
September to January (The right time to reach the spot is 12.00 noon and it is better to be back by 4.00 pm.)
Nearest City: Madikeri, Somwarpet
Air: Closest Airport: Bangalore (260 km), Mangalore (135 km)
Rail: Closest Railway Station: Mysore (146 km)
Road: Bangalore - Channapatna - Mandya - Mysore - Kushalnagar - Madikeri - From here the sanctuary is 25 Kms
You can join the "Mugilupete VVIET" community in orkut.



Route map to Mandalapatti( Mugilupete):

In Mysore-Madikeri state highway you have to take deviation towards "Abby Falls". Then 3kms before Abby Falls you get a y junction where left turn leads to Abby falls and the right mud road will lead you to the Mandalapatti.You have to take right deviation towards Mandalapatti .This road is very bad & it is difficult to go in bike or car. It is better to go in SUV(4wd)s. You can hire jeep from Madikeri which costs around 900 rupees.
Bengaluru ---> Mysore ---> Madikeri ---> Towards abbi falls --->Right in Y junction --->  Mandalapatti(Mugilupete)

  23. I went to Mugulpete in December 2013, I think other places in Madkeri or Coorg worth seeing than Mugulpete, This is waste of money & time, Since Jeep charges are 1400/- plus entrance fee of Rs 20/ per head.
