Pushpagiri and Kumaraparvata, fall at the district’s northern edge near its tri-junction with Hassan and Dakshina Kannada districts. There are two approaches to Pushpagiri and Kumaraparvat peaks. While the eastern entrance is from Beedehalli via Heggademane temple, where there is a check post of Somavarpet wildlife range, Madikeri wildlife sub-division. The personnel here strictly implement the Wildlife Protection Act and accordingly firearms, alcohol, crackers, inflammable substances and other articles that might endanger wildlife and their habitat, are prohibited. The western one is from Kukke Subramanya via Giri gadde. The access from Beedehalli- a small hamlet at the north-eastern entrance of Pushpagiri Wildlife sanctuary is supposed to be less tough as it is at a higher elevation than Kukke Subramanya, which is nearer sea level. The southern part of Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary can be accessed from Madikeri town.
