Bandallidurga is a hill fort situated at an altitude of 4700ft above sea level near a hamlet called Bandalli in Kanakapura taluk – making it an ideal short getaway from Bangalore. The hillock is situated inside the Cauvery Wildlife sanctuary (CWS) The mysterious humped shape makes it an intriguing object of interest. Not much is known about the history of this fort. Today, the fort is more or less in ruins. The fort is protected by three levels of wall and it seems impregnable. The top of the hill is not visible from the base of the hill. After a steep climb 3 hrs, one reaches the ruins of the fort. There is also a perennial well built by the Palegars (the locals). The trek passes through Lantana bushes, bamboo forest, and green meadows. From the top of the hill, one can see a panoramic view of MM Hills, B R Hills and other nearby hill ranges. The place is a haven for birdwatchers. Birds like Hoope, Bushchat, Woodpeckers, Coppersmith Barbet, Jungle fowl, Green Barbets, and Wagtail are found in large numbers. Bandalli Durga is an ideal short getaway for history lovers, birdwatchers, and the Bangalore escapist!
