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.
