Shoolagiri Hills-Best for trek

Shoolagiri is approximately 65 km from Bangalore and 15 km from Hosur taluk, Dharmapura district of Tamil Nadu. This is one climb that shall leave you with a sense of exhilaration to lose yourself in the elements of the trek. It is an amazing place for all nature and adventure lovers, trekkers and wanderers like me.

Shoolagiri derives its name from the tall rocky three-pronged hills which appears like a trishul (weapon of Shiva). Ensure to take in the scenic beauty while you walk these paths. Surrounded by luxuriant greenery, the mountains abuzz with birds and its serenity is a treat in itself. In the course of the one hour trek, thorny bushes will greet you on your way up, but the peak shall reward every trekker with mesmeric views that shall surprise everyone who takes this path.

Shoolagiri is the ideal place for a quiet weekend getaway from the maddening rush of the city. Every moment of the trek is like a new lesson, a new mystery, around the corner. The most intriguing aspect of your journey is the view of the magnificent: three peaks signifying a Trishula of Lord Shiva. After a tiring trek you can also visit the Shoolagiri Chinnar Damn which is 8 to 9kms from the hill. Worth taking a walk along its long bund that is accessible by vehicles too. This place left me with a hangover that I am yet to recover from.

Overall a nice experience

I liked Hosur because there are two mountain temple one is Siva and Krishna. Both are very beautiful. And Hosur is big industrial area. And there is near Hogenakkal falls, & it is very beautiful. When the falls are full its super to see, but it is very dangerous to take bath. So we have to make a safe bath.

Hosur Overview

Hosur is a city in the Krishnagiri District of Tamil Nadu. It is located 40 km away from the Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore. Hosur is located at 900 meters above sea level and is known for its lush greenery and pleasant weather all year round.

Hosur has taken its cue and is now booming with the large presence of manufacturing industries in the city which parallels the meteoric rise of Bangalore as an information technology hub in India. The automobile industry here is instrumental in creating more interest in the city for investment opportunities and economic growth.

Hosur was founded by King Rama Natha of the Hoysala Dynasty in the year 1290. It is historically significant for acting as a border between British India and Tipu’s Mysore. Hosur was twice conquered by the British in 1768 and 1791.

A replica of the Scottish Kenilworth Castle called Brett’s Fort existed in Hosur and acted as a stronghold for the British but now lies in ruins. Under the British rule in India, Hosur was made the headquarters of the Salem District by the collector Walton Illiat Lockardt.

The State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu Limited (SIPCOT) has been a catalyst in the development of industries in the backward areas of Tamil Nadu and was instrumental from the 1980s in assisting Hosur’s evolution into an ideal destination for manufacturing companies.

Hosur is also known for being the largest single region to export roses from India. The TANFLORA Infrastructure Park at Madhagondapalli near Hosur is the largest exporter of roses to Europe. The patented “Taj Mahal” rose is the most popular export.
