Savandurga Trekking

The Savandurga hills are situated 60 kms away from Bangalore. The Billigudda and Karigudda peaks constitute the Savandurga hills are extremely popular for trekking in Bangalore. Situated at an elevation of 1,226 metres, the range offers a serene and sublime atmosphere for trekking and exploration in Savandurga. The Savandurga hill is one the highest monoliths in Asia.

The Billigudda peak is mostly preferred by trekkers over the Karigudda range as it has gentler slopes and yellow markings on the trail to the peak. Savandurga is covered with dense forests and without proper marking or an expert guide; you could lose your way and get lost in the jungles. The markings on the Biliigudda range ensure that you reach the peak safely and also take the best route to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

The Billigudda hill offers an easier gradient for comfortable trekking as compared to the Karigudda hill. Surrounded by lush greenery, the hill itself has sparse vegetation and is strewn with large rocky boulders.

You will come across walls of Tipu Sultan’s fort on various levels of the journey. There are seven walls in all and each wall will tell you how much more you need to climb. The peak of the hill offers a splendid view of the surroundings. You can feel all your fatigue vaporize as the cool breeze caresses you.

You can spend a day camping on the hill peak and wake up to witness a spectacular sunrise. However, for camping you will require prior permissions and Thrillophilia can help you with it. Trekking in Savandurga during the rainy season wouldn’t be a good idea. The slopes of Savandurga can be treacherous and may lead to dangerous accidents.

Best Season: Nov to Feb
Trek length: 4 Kms
Distance from Bangalore: 65kms
Difficulty Level: Easy

  1. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

  3. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

  4. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.

I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

  5. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  6. Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it

  7. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

  8. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  9. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

  10. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

  11. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  12. Hola! I’ve been reading your website for a long time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascocita Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the fantastic work!

  13. Hi! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

  14. Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

  15. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  16. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its niche. Excellent blog!

  17. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thank you

  18. I have to show my appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from this particular circumstance. After looking through the the net and seeing concepts that were not powerful, I thought my life was gone. Living without the presence of strategies to the problems you’ve resolved through your good website is a serious case, as well as the kind that might have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I had not noticed the website. Your own ability and kindness in playing with all the details was helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a solution like this. I can also at this point look forward to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this expert and amazing help. I will not hesitate to recommend the blog to any individual who will need guidelines on this subject.

  19. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome weblog!

  21. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  24. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
