Makalidurga Sunrise Trek | Namma Trip

Multiple days 11:00 PM - Makali Durga · Makali Durga · Bangalore

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 hilloc

    • 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.
