Overview

Trip Starting From: Bangalore

Trip Location: Bangalore

About the Activity:

  • Located around 60km from the garden city Bangalore, Makalidurga trek is an ideal escapade for the city dwellers. Situated within a close proximity to the Doddaballapur town, this vicinity is one of the finest destinations for adventure activities like trekking, rappelling, rock climbing and others.
  • While the craggy and uneven terrains during Makalidurga night trek serves as a favourite host to some of the enthralling trekking trails, its scenic beauty and charm entices the nature lovers equally. Be it for family getaways, fun with friends or any other corporate excursions, this quaint and pictorial vicinity is ideal for all seasons and reasons as well!
  • Reaching a towering height of 4,430ft, the Makalidurga Hill with its lush vegetation, challenging routes and fascinating views, serves as a wonderful trekking destination. While the vicinity witnesses a large flow of adventure enthusiasts during the day, it also experiences a same amount of trekking enthusiasts during the night time.
  • While the ruggedness of the trails will keep you engrossed with unlimited enthrallment during the daytime, the nocturnal beauty of the hill and its bountiful surroundings adds more fun and excitement to your trek. Making it to the top of the hill, you can also witness the historic Makalidurga Fort under the magical spell of the night. 
  • In addition to all the marvels, night trekking in Makalidurga is also rewarded with the enchanting views of a lake that surrounds the hill and resembles to South American Continent.

    It was so adventurous and enthralling trek. Wherever you see, it is dark but even the darkness on the paths could not stop us from reaching our destinations. Went on it with friends and had an amazing time. Must try it once. It is different from day trekking.

    It was so amazing trekking on the trails of Makalidurga during the night. It was complete dark while we were walking. It was so chilly and scary at times. Really loved it.

    The rugged and enticing trail that kept us going through the way is a true treat at any time of the day. However, in the night it assumes and even more mystical quality! The season being summer, the area had gotten pleasantly breezy and cool. A true respite from city life if there ever was! Thanks to the leader for making sure everything went smoothly, and they also ensured that we had a truly good time.
