  • I visited Madhugiri fort on a weekend. One has to be bit careful as it is a single monolithic trek. Best one day trek for trekkers.  more »
  • Monolith treks are just plain uphill mountains without trees or ups and downs like regular mountains. That makes the trek bit different and interesting. It would be around 4-4.5 k of height. Roads fro...  more »

  • Located close to 100kms from Bangalore, Madhugiri fortress is a perfect place for a day's trip. The Madhugiri hill is Asia's second largest monolith. There are steps from the base almost till the top however close to the top the steps become narrow and there is no support to climb. Better to climb the hill during early morning hours since it becomes very hot in the afternoon. Avoid climbing during rain as it might become slippery. On the way one gets to witness the magnificent architecture of the fort.
  • Nice place to trek with easy - medium difficulty. The view is quite plain with just the town being seen and normal lands and rocky terrain. Gets very difficult to climb in the afternoon with the sun above. No water/eatables is available anywhere, so please carry whatever you need.
  • Pretty good place. Not maintained but really clean and neat. Trekking will be challenging at same time Fun (Medium Tough). It may take 2 Hrs or more to trek to top. Better to start early.
  • Big NO for a family trip!! Railings were broken at places. Avoid this place during rainy season. Better to start by 7 or 8 in the morning and you can come back by 11 or 12. Carry at least 1ltr water.
  • Package of mystery for every new who visit here..!! It keeps calling you very often because of its uniqueness structure.. green around and covered cloud welcomes you to a completely new world. Recommended to adventure lovers and one day outing. Start climbing by 5am and Reach atop by 6:30am..
