No doubt this has been the best trekking spot around Bangalore. The difficult terrain, best sunrise view made it one of the best trekkers hub of all time. I had been to night trek at this place back in 2011, it was my first trek ever, i fell in love with the trekking there after. Month so and so on so and so Chikkaballapur police did a ban on the trek after a Bangalore-based techie died in an accidental fall back in 2012. Many people are trying to sneak in and trek but police has been really strict and there are many cases of them being caught and arrested. I've been following news about Skandagiri will be allowed with forest department guide and fees but its been 4 years and no news regarding it till date.

2. Hesaraghatta

I had been on my trip to Hesarghatta on 9 Sept 2016, as soon as i reached Hesarghatta i was disappointed to know the place got banned recently. I had no idea about it, I came back and did research about it. Now the place is not open for public only authorized people mostly film industry can access the place. It was one of my best shooting spot around Bangalore but it got banned :(

Not so long back the Avalabetta was popular, when i first visited Avalabetta on sep 2015 there were hardly anyone at this place, After few months the place got very famous because of its unique vertical drop point. I visited second time on sep 2016, this time there was a huge rush at this point for taking photographs, few days later it finally got banned there will be a security guard not allowing people to go near the point.

4. Thattekere

Thattekere has been a best spot for cyclists, last time i visited this place on so and so i got to know the place got banned, the reason behind the ban is still unknown, since it comes directly under so and so forest department, they must have banned this place keeping the environment in mind.

5. Turahalli forest

Its not yet banned but usually there will be a police doing rounds at this place who will shoo away any visitors at this place, the reason for not allowing people to stay here is because of the robberies happening as its close to a construction area.
