MakaliDurga Fort Trek

Last weekend we had been to MakaliDurga fort to trek. Its around 70 kms from Bangalore .We started our journey at 4 AM . Prakash who drove his car was ready by 3 AM :). Anyways we left bangalore  at 4 30 and took Devanahalli Road to reach DoddaBallapura. From DoddaBallapura , Makalidurga fort is just 15 Kms.

We reached the base around 5 30 AM and it was dark!

Since it was first trek in that region ,we had no clue as where we need to go. Basically near the parking place you would encounter a railway crossing line.

Towards the right side of the track is Makalidurga fort.

There  is a proper trail that  leads to the peak. But make sure you take diversion when you find this.  🙂

Once you find this , start working along the trail.

At top you will see a fort and a Shiva temple.Here are some snaps of it.

We started heading down and reached the base at 8. On the way to Bangalore at Raghavendra Tiffin Center we had our Breakfast (Tatte Idli :)). Around 11 Am we almost reached our home.

Trek Difficulty :  Moderate to Difficult

Best Time :  Morning 6 to 8.  Or you can do Night trek and have a camp there.

Transportation :  Bus/Train

Food: There is nothing available there. Better carry eatables with you .

Hope this article will help someone someday 🙂
