Skandagiri Night Trek

Overview

Among the hill forts around Bangalore , Kalawara betta (Skandagiri), situated about 68 Kms from Bangalore is prominent among the hill forts often referred to as giridurga in the chain of hills in the Nandi Hill ranges. Situated at a altitude of 1450 metres above sea level and stands high dominating the landscape.The dilapidated walls of Tippu's fort can be found today on steep Kalawarbetta (Skandagiri), near the village of Kalwara. History says though this was is small , but strong hill fort. It surrendered to British troops on 19 October 1791. It remained in British hands until the peace treaty of 1792, which concluded of the third Anglo-Mysore war.

For the adventure seekers. This is a tedious trek as the hill is precipitous and high. The trek starts from the Papagni Temple at the foothills of Kalawara village. The fortress of Kalawarbetta is in full sight throughout the walk uphill. This steep and fantastic trek through a maze of dense shrub is highly intriguing. Kalawarbetta is a teaser. Just as you reach the fort wall contended that you have topped the hill, you see another ring of fort. No sooner you reach there; you will find another majestic fort wall waiting to be conquered. There are six such series of stonewalls protecting an abandoned temple on the hilltop.

There are 2 caves, one starts from the base and as per locals, leads to the temple at peak and another one is somewhere midway which is about 30 feet only. Both are yet unexplored, especially the first one.

The definition of abseiling is fairly simple. The term comes from the German word abseilen, meaning ‘to rope down’. Also known as rappelling, abseiling is a vital skill for mountain climbers but is also useful in other sports too.
