Skandagiri (Kalwarbetta or Kalavara Durga) is a hill located around 70 km from Bangalore. It is a hill with the ruins of a fort which dates back to the 18th century. The fort is in a dilapidated condition, and so is the temple situated close to it. The total trek distance is approximately 5 km one way and takes nearly 2 hours.
