One from Kukke Subrahmanya and another from Beedhalli, Somwarpet. This route is fairly steep with a lot of forest cover and boulders on the way which makes the climb little treacherous yet enjoyable. The trail from Kukke starts within the jungle canopy all the way for six kilometers and continues in the open grassland for another six with the scorching sun above till one reaches Shesha Parvata.
Although from distance the mountain looks as if one single peak but in reality, it has three peaks called Shesha Parvatha, Siddha Parvatha and Kumara Parvatha. The Shesha Parvatha faces to the south and looks like a serpent with seven hoods. The Siddha Parvatha, another part of the mountain and it is inaccessible. It is believed that Shri Vishnuthirthacharya is performing penance here even now.
