The mountain range features grasslands, rugged rocks along the trek path and a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva on its peak.

"A majestic hill with the good view" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Great place, amazing view top of the hill. Last 3 kms of drive is difficult and about 500 steps (not sure) at the end. All worth the effort. Do not forget to explore the other side of the hill and the old cave.

"A romantic destination" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Best to visit during August to January. Full of fog covered lush green hills. Pin curved roads and deep valleys and water falls would fill your eyes. Best romantic weekend destination.

"Nice place for a trilling place" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
It is the highest peak point in Karnataka. Heavy wind at the top, feel very cheerful and thrilling. At the top of the hill one small temple where we can take rest. Good place for doing meditation. We definitely enjoy the thrilling moments at the top of the Hill.

"Beautiful place to trek"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It was an amazing place, it is best if you have a vehicle of your own. One must carry cameras and food there are not any good hotels around. Carry less luggage as you have to trek a lot.

"Go trekking around the green hill"

  • 2.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
If you have done enough treks around Bangalore, this place is completely a waste of an effort. View is quite average and there is nothing special on the top. BR hills and others seem to be a better option any day. Or simply just go hike on other hills covered in green during the rainy season - way better than such a crowded hill.

"Great place but drive with caution"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Nov 13, 2014
A very scenic hill station. The drive up-to Sivagiri - 3 km before summit is great, but after that it gets deadly. Gradient becomes very steep and massive pot holes at hairpin bends make this stretch unmotorable except for 4 wheel drives. Do not attempt this stretch cause the road is narrow and there are no safety barriers on the roadsides. It's a sheer drop at the edge of road. Reversing requires great skill and a U turn can be attempted only by local taxi drivers. No safety signs, no warnings, nothing. Even the locals don't tell you what you are in for. Deadly dangerous to attempt the summit by car unless and until the roads are repaired. Walking up the road from Sitagita is the best option for now. Parking space is available next to the famous temple here. Just 3 km walk.
