What To Expect

Your trip begins with a pick up from your selected meet up location Bangalore, upon which the coach will take you to the Kalavara base. You'll be able to meet your English speaking guide and learn about the tour and its precautions. Afterwards, you will commence your Skandagiri night trek after you have loosened your muscles and warmed up. As you journey up towards the peak, you can take in the uniquely serene atmosphere of the night around you. You will travel to the Papagni temple and pay respects before moving forward. With the vegetation around the trail is somewhat scanty, it may seem easy at first, but as you ascend, it starts becoming denser. You will see evidence of the savannah climate of the region as there are no trees along the trail, and instead see dense scrubs and bushes. Be mindful: you will have to cross six fascinating concentric fortification walls to reach the summit. Upon reaching the top, you will be able to relish in your success, and then start a bonfire with your team as you look below to see the twinkling lights of the villages. You can catch some sleep if you wish, but you must remember to wake up before the sun rises in order to see a spectacular scene when dawn breaks. Take as many photos of this enchanting phenomenon as you desire, watching the sun glow over the villages and foliage. You then begin your descent, and upon reaching the base, you'll find the Kalwara village campsite. Here is where you'll enjoy breakfast before departing back for Bangalore.

    Nice trek, good experience and a really helpful guide Ayaan to help us through the way.
  • Parikshit 17 Sep 2018
    Skandagiri was fun a trip overall, Both the guides were friendly. We had a little bit of trouble to start the trekk due to forest permissions issue, but our guides handled it and solved it in 30 mins. It is a wonderful place for trekking with moderate difficulty level. Make sure you carry one good warm jacket because it is quite chilled and windy at the peak.
  • mayank 16 Sep 2018
    Poorely managed. These guys did not know when will the trakking start. It is 3.20 am and i am waiting at the base with the whole group and hoping to start trakking soon. The guide is inexperienced.
