Skandagiri Sunrise Trek | Plan The Unplanned | Event in Bangalore | AllEvents.in Skandagiri Sunrise Trek | Plan The Unplanned
Located at a distance of approximately 70 KM from Bangalore, Skandagiri is the perfect sunrise trek for a weekend getaway from Bangalore for several reasons- its close proximity to the city, the scenic views and of course, the picture-perfect sunrise from the peak.

Historically known as Kalwarbetta or Kalavara Durga, the mountain fortress of Skandagiri holds immense importance – it is said that this fortress was built by Tipu Sultan which has been left deserted since 1791 after he lost the Anglo-Mysore War. Since then, the fortress has been weathered away, and now, nothing but the ruins remain. However, the beauty of the ancient Skandagiri Hills has increased over time. And with more and more restrictions being placed on night treks across the State, the Skandagiri trek is one of the very few night treks remaining that one can do legally.

Note: The Forest Department presently allows 40 people per day between Monday – Friday, and 150/day on Saturdays and Sundays. We request you to book your slots at the earliest and send mandatory details such as Name, Mail Id, and Age of each one of you, for availing the permits required. If in case we don’t get the permission or any other hindrances occur due to external factors, for the batch, an alternative trek to Gudibande Fort shall be arranged by PTU and there shall be no refunds on the bookings made for Skandagiri Trek.



“Trekking to Skandagiri during the night is illegal and is not allowed by the forest department. The trek starts only at 4:00 AM. We request everyone to abide by the law’
