The Madhugiri meaning Honey hill is located in Tumkur district with an elevation of 3930 feet. This fort is around 120 km away from Bengaluru and widely known as Asia's second-largest monolithic hill. Going back in time this fort was built by Raja Hera Gowda in 1678 and further developed at the time of Hyder Ali. Earlier this fort was also ruled by Marathas and later on became a part of the Mysore empire.
While trekking one can find doorways leading to the top and the rock is steep and exposed at certain points. On the top is the Gopal Krishna temple and you can find smaller hills at the distance and agricultural fields. Along with History and the stories, this place has become a famous spot for trekking enthusiasts.
