The Makalidurga trek is the nearest railway trek to Bangalore. It begins with a 2-km walk on the railway track from the station of Makalidurga. One can also ride bikes to the beginning of the trekking trail as well. A lot of refreshments is advised to be carried in case one wants to trek this hillock. The hill is made of granite stone, sparking in its natural occurrence. The larger rocks have made Makalidurga popular among rock climbers. On the top stands an old fort, now in ruins. It has quite a history to it. The start of the climb is marked by a Krishna temple and you complete your darshan at the top with a temple of Shiva and Nandi. You can see the Gunjar Lake-in the shape of South America, outlined by many grasslands and manicured farms from the top. A web of railroads completes the rural landscape.Trek Difficulty: ModerateDistance: Around 90 km from BangaloreTentative Itinerary11:00 PM Pick up starts from Bangalore03:00 AM Reach Makalidurgae base03:10 AM Start the small hike to peak Makalidurga04:30 AM Finish experience, relax and enjoy the campfire05:50 AM Relax until sunrise07:00 AM Descend towards the base08:00 AM Head to the nearby restaurant.Freshen up & have breakfast.09:30 AM Head back to Bangalore11:30 AM Reach BangaloreActivitySunrise HikeRock ClimbingTransportPick up and drop from/to Bangalore in a Traveller or Mini Bus.Other InclusionsBreakfastTrek PermitsTrek Leads from NammaTripThings To Carry Small Backpack to carry below essentials Water bottles Energy bars Personal medication or A First Aid Kit Sweater/ jackets for the night.
