Savandurga is destination best 6 hours trip destination for the Bangalore people. It is well connected by road by a 4 lane road for the most of the journey expect for small 15 min state highway(2 lane). For the regular trekkers its moderate difficult hill but one can make the trek easy by taking bit longer route. Girls and ladies will certainly need help at the end of the trek(due to steep climb). We started early at 3 am from Bangalore and reached the savandurga by 4:30 am. We decided immediately to start our trek but with no clear direction initially we got lost at the lower base of the hill but it turned out to be a good warm up walk for our trek. Don't follow the Forest department Board instead follow the Electric poles line to the hill. After an hours wandering around the foot of the hill we started to walk on the right track by dawn. The initial part was easy as compared to the later part. It took an hour to reach the top but we took small intermittent breaks and enjoyed the sunrise over the track. There are some good spots to stop watch the sky changing its colors from blue to purple to orange over the foggy landscape of reservoir backwater. The journey downwards was tricky initially due to the steepness which makes the route adventurous but it takes less time to get down. We completed our descend in 30 minutes. My Best tip to future trekker start early since it became hot and sweaty while were going down so start early so that you can enjoy the trek and the scenic natural beauty at the same time. Carry some food and water, it helps to curb your hunger pangs on reaching the top. And please don't dispose the waste on the hill top rather carry it back in a plastic bag and dispose it in the village at the foot of the hill and become a responsible citizen.
Its around 50 km far from Bangalore. Road are in good condition. A hil is there. A good place to hangout with friends. Trekking opportunities are there at the savandurga hills. But its advised to trek only with proper guidelines and precautions, otherwise it may become fatal. Not crowded. Best time to visit is early in tge morning.
