Velliangiri mountain is one of the most difficult Trekking Spot. The trekking season is from February till May every year. You can reach the place from Gandipuram by taking the bus to Poondi which you can find easily during the season or you could just drive away with Google Maps. According to me the best time to trek here is at night. The two times I had been there was at night. That's because you have to trek barefoot, yes barefoot! So it would be really difficult to trek in the daytime as the surface will be very hot. You can very well go with your shoes and slippers on if your purpose is solely trekking. 99% of the people would prefer barefoot as its considered to be a sacred place and they go on to the top of the mountain to worship God. Girls between the age of 15–45 are not allowed to trek. Make sure you carry a backpack with basic first aid, torch lights (if its a night trek), fruits like apple/banana to get some energy and water bottle (a big one or a couple of small ones) - you will be dehydrated so fast and you would need water every now and then, trust me the feeling you get when drinking water after getting fully dehydrated will be heavenly! Good Luck!!!
