Details

Skandagiri, also historically known as Kalwarbetta or Kalavara Durga is a mountain fortress located around 70 km from Bangalore. This tiring yet much rewarding trek takes you through a spectacular journey amidst the wilderness. Starting at 10 pm from Bangalore, reach the base point by midnight and hereby begins the night trek.

The serene and sublime atmosphere around Skandagiri will definitely boost up your adrenaline. This 8 km trek can easily be completed within 4 to 5 hours of ascending and descending. Tried and tested both by amateurs and professionals, this trek is a must for thrill-seekers.

The climb gets tedious as you reach the Papagni Temple, hereby offering treacherous terrains amongst the dense shrubs around. Thereafter the steep slopes may require tricky footwork till the summit. The ruined remains of Tipu Sultans fort and an abandoned fort remains at the top of the hill.

Skandagiri is famous for walking above the clouds, literally! As you reach the top, enjoy the bonfire in the starry night couched inside your sleeping bags. Wake up to experience the morning winds caressing you, as you open your eyes to get the most magnanimous sight of the sun rising above a bed of clouds, a sight so rare. The misty valley of Skandagiri is bound to leave an everlasting impression in your mind.

Trek Difficulty: Moderate-Challenging
Best season: Oct to Feb
Distance from Bangalore: 70 Km
Trek Distance: 8 Km Total

We had been part of Dandeli Trip dated 27th December 2019 consisting of total 12 members and the guide. We left Bengaluru at round 9.45 pm(which was 9 as per the plan) We were already running late by 1 hour and then we had to pick all the members from Marathahalli Yashwant our and finally started our journey It wa a temp otravwller having just 13 seats and was not considered to be worth for a journey of about 450 kms The driver was driving at his own pace and used to stop the vehicle for 30 minuets after every hour.Henxe equals reached the final destination at 12 pm instead of 6 am as mentioned in the itenerary After teaching the place we could identify that the cottages were having no attachedbreat rooms and no desperate rest rooms for girls around the cottage area Also the cottages were not cleaned and 5 boys we had to share one cottage which was 2 sharing as per the itenary Then post lunch we started river dying which was around 4 pm and that was the only event made us give those 2 starsThe day was ended with camp fire which was gain not privately planned for the team but we had to sit with some other group .Titally the day was just about 2 to 4 hours and no plan as per the itenarary was successful on the first day. Also next day we started with jungle hike and could visit some places ha big no proper planning due to which we had to look at crocodiles lying on the banks of the river using tourch at 7 pmThe total trip ended at next day morning I.e., Sunday at 10 am after a tedious journey.The coordinator himself had no sufficient Ola w to sit in the TTThe driver was irresponsible and dominatingExcerpt river rafting there was no memory that we could carry homeThis was our first experience with NAMMA TRIP Hence it was a very bad experience after being part of around 5 to 6 tracks earlier with other groupsSORRY BUT ITS THE FACT - by Prajwal Kotyan for Go WILD in DANDELI | Jungle Camping, River Rafting, Witness Wildlife organized by Namma Trip .
