  1. Skandagiri Trek: Located right next to Nandi Hills at around 70 kilometers from Bangalore and near Chikkabalapur, the trek is moderately difficult. You will need to trek for around 3 to 4 hours until reaching the summit. The moonlight treks in the region are the ones that are the most popular at the moment.

  2. Makalidurga Trek:Makalidurga TrekThe nature lover and the explorer can meet near Doddabalapur to experience a very interesting mixture of forest and steepness, all with a pinch of ruined fort. You will want to travel to the top of the hill so that you can see the wonderful view of the railway and the surrounding scenic landscape.

  3. Jalamangala Trek This is a famous trek because of the Narayanagiri rocky hill. Its height is over 3800 feet and the piece de resistance is the Laxmi-Narayana temple. It is quite a tiring climb that is quite steep but the reward when you reach the top is a breathtaking view that will stay in your hearts forever.
