Anamudi is the highest peak in the Western Ghats in India, having an elevation of 2,695 metres (8,842 ft). It is a perfect spot for trekking enthusiasts. The grass slopes starting from the plateau make for a considerably easy hike uphill. The first recorded ascent of the Anamudi was by General Douglas Hamilton of the Madras Army on May 4, 1862. However, it is likely that there had been earlier ascents by local people.
