Savandurga is a popular trekking destination located near Bangalore and is frequented by adventure enthusiasts from various parts of India. This largest monolithic hill of Asia is surrounded by thick forests that are home to a wide variety of wildlife. The hill also features the famous Manchinbele Dam on one side that offers yet another mesmerizing view to the trekkers. The various water activities that the participants can enjoy towards the end of Savandurga trek add to the refreshing and memorable experience of this exquisite trip.

While a trekking trip to the peak of the monolith proves to be a completely thrilling experience, it does not match the beauty and excitement of undertaking the trip at night time. Walking up the hill under a starlit night and enjoying the beautiful sight of the nearby town lit by countless lights is something that cannot be explained in words. Topping the experience is the amazing view of the rising sun from the top of the monolith in the early morning hours. Get down from the hill and indulge in various water sports activities like swimming and kayaking to complete your experience with a fresh breeze.

    Amazing experience. the best part about savandurga is that the entire place comes to life as the night approaches. Flocks of clouds accompanied us when we made our way up and the evening bonfire was no doubt the best perk after trekking for a considerable part of the time. Loved the entire experience.

    While I was not very thrilled about the idea of the Savandurga Night Trek when my friends dragged me into it, I cannot deny that I loved it. And it was all thanks to the guide assigned by Thrillophilia who knew his way and made sure we had a gala time on our trek to Savandurga.

    Savandurga - What a place? Awesome views, calm region and peace. Loved the trekking experience. The night trek was a new experience for me- initially I thought that there won't be much to enjoy during night but damn the night views are equally stunning and the bonfire was the icing on the cake.
