Makalidurga is a trek to one of the most enchanting places as this hill has twinkling skies, a rich history and a railway line running through the lush greenery of the hills. Makalidurga is located only 60 kilometers away from Bangalore and 10 kilometers away from the town of Doddaballapur.
It's because of this that a number of people, ranging from travel junkies to adventure lovers as well as those who adore nature, make their way to this stunning hill every weekend. Makalidurga hill stands above the rest of the world at a height of 4430 feet and has a fort located at the top of its peak.
The foothill is surrounded by a lake that is similar to the shape of the continent of South America, while a train runs through the lower half of the hills. Everything is amidst lush green grasses and stunning views of nature. This day-trek will never fail to rejuvenate your mind and nerves!
