Overview

Forts have always had a certain charm in themselves, and if they are made on certain heights, hidden from plain sight with fog, clouds, and mist, the charm just doubles. Such an amazing fort in the Dakshina Kannada district of Karnataka is the Ballalarayana Durga Fort, which lies on the top of a hill and can only be reached by trekking through the dense vegetation that grows on the slopes.

And this trek and camp experience in the Western Ghats fulfills that very purpose, to take you to a beautiful fort, high-up in the hills and shrouded by a cover of thick clouds. And the best thing about this place is that there is no network connectivity, making this the perfect experience of camping, trekking and offbeat.

Starting from the guesthouse that will also act as your base camp for the activity, you will start the trek to the top at about 9 in the morning, and reach the peak in about 4 hours. Spend some time at the top taking in views of the famous Charmadi Ghat Hill and the South Kendra view, get the most perfect pictures here and return back to the base camp. To keep your strength and spirits high throughout the activity, you will be enjoying delicious local cooked meals. 

About the activity:
- You will be arriving at the starting point of the trek in the early hours of morning and check-in to the base camp. Hot shower and south Indian breakfast will greet you here.
- At 9 AM, begin the trek towards the fort (7 km one way) and walk past the lush rainforest and many streams on the way. You will be carrying packed lunch with you on the way.
- Reach the top and have your packed lunch. Spend some time and take in the mesmerizing and misty views of the surroundings, before coming back down.
- Have your dinner and then retire for the night. You will wake up in the morning, have a delicious breakfast and check-out bringing the experience to an end.
