    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 »

    Madhugiri fort - One of the most mesmerising forts. It's too steep that once you look down, you skip a beat. Very adventurous one. Happy travelling!  more »

    One of the most difficult treks around Bengaluru. Also involves Steep hills at few places. You need to cross around 4 hills to reach the top. It will definitely test your endurance and stamina. Be prepared for it before you start Carry only essential stuffs for the trek. We were not prepared at all, we just had one bottle of water and ran out of it half way through the onward journey and still continued. You will get that amazing feeling once you reach the top and its definitely worth it

    One of the hardest and trickiest treks I've ever done. Don't carry anything other than water. Shorts and very good trekking shoes​ are recommended. Monsoon is a good time for views and not for trekking. Summer is a good time for trekking and not for views. Many view points along the trail. One can spend a day.

    Among one of the most difficult treks around Bangalore. We travelled by bike and there was nothing to complain about the roads. Very easy to reach the start of the climb via your vehicle. There are stairs carved at the starting with ample shade in the ruins of the fort, But after 1/3rd of the way it's all steep and dangerous rocks to climb, and at many places you need to be extra careful. On the top there are ruins and refreshing wind. Nothing available on the way up or down but there is bus stand and market just outside the start of climb where you can grab some snacks, but no upscale place to eat anywhere near. Make sure to visit the reservoir on the way.

    A Great place for a good trek! Just 2 hours drive from Bangalore. You have to be there early in the morning so that the sun is not beating down hard on you when you're climbing! Enjoy

    A rocky hill to climb, steps are not carved throughout, quite risky if you don't wear proper footwear. Have food before climbing. View from the bottom could be quite misleading, as the hill top keeps moving away as you climb.
