Day 1

Savandurga is hill located in Ramnagara District ( Karnataka, India) 60km west of Bengaluru off the Magadi road in India. The hill is considered to be among the largest monolith hills in Asia. Thanks hill rises to 1227m above sea level and forms a part of the Deccan plateau. The Arkavathi river passes nearby through the Thippagondanahalli reservoir and on towards Manchanabele dam.

We started from Bangalore. Booked a self drive car and started at 3am from Bangalore. In one hour we reached there. There was nothing to eat on the way, not a single tea stall so I will advise you bring some snacks with you. At the destination, there is a famous Temple and some small shops. You can have tea/coffee and breakfast there. But don't eat much because you have to climb. Keep 1L water bottle with you. The hill is steep so you may find little difficulties if you don't have good grip shoes. You only have to follow arrow and reach the peak by following 3-4 mid peaks.

That morning sun rises around 6 am. The first sight was really stunning. Reddish changing to saffron to yellow. We clicked some photographes and started climbing. There is a Temple of Nandi on the top. All is there is wonderful trekking with stunning view and cool air. In Midway you can also find some local vendor for energy drinks. When you come back make sure you come not fast otherwise you can fall and that can be very very bad. Good luck, keep trekking.
