It was a great experience. My first ever trek and thanks to Thrilllophillia it went smoothly. The place is good and trek is challenging for beginners....

Overview

About the Activity

IMPORTANT:  PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR TOUR OPERATOR REGARDING FOREST PERMISSION REQUIREMENTS. 

Skandagiri, also historically known as Kalwarbetta or Kalavara Durga, is a mountain fortress located around 70 km from Bangalore. This tiring yet much rewarding trek takes you through a spectacular journey amidst the wilderness. Starting from Bangalore, reach the base point and hereby begins the sunrise trek. The serene and sublime atmosphere around Skandagiri will definitely boost up your adrenaline to a whole new level. This 10km trek can easily be completed within 4 to 5 hours of ascending and descending.

Tried and tested both by amateurs and professionals, this moderately difficult trek is a must for all thrill seekers. The climb gets a little trying as you reach the Papagni Temple, hereby offering treacherous terrains amongst the dense shrubs around. From this point, the steep climb may require tricky footwork till you reach the summit. The ruined remains of Tipu Sultan's fortress and an abandoned fort remains at the top of the hill. Skandagiri is famous for walking above the clouds, literally! As you reach the top, enjoy the bonfire in the starry night couched inside your sleeping bags. Wake up to experience the morning winds caressing you, as you open your eyes to get the most magnanimous sight of the sun rising above beds of clouds, a sight so rare and equally refreshing. The misty valley of Skandagiri is bound to leave an everlasting impression on your mind.

    Overall it was a nice experience. Initially we had doubt whether we complete or not. But we made it. One thing i noticed though , either thrillophilia or people conducting trekking didnt get any emergence contact number. Otherwise it is good.
