Kuduremukha is a mountain range and name of a peak located in Chikkamangaluru district, in Karnataka, India. The name Kuduremukha literally means 'horse-face' (in the Kannada language) and refers to a particularly picturesque view of a side of the mountain that resembles a horse's face. It was also referred to as 'Samseparvata', historically since it was approached from Samse village. Kuduremukh is Karnataka's 3rd highest peak after Mullayangiri and Baba Budangiri.
