Savandurga, Dabguli

4.4
#1 of 7 in Parks in Ramanagara District
An attraction to both picnickers and pilgrims, Savandurga provides both spiritual satisfaction and leisure time. Rising 1226 m (4020 ft) above the sea level, the hills serve as a prime destination for cave explorers, rock climbers, and adventurers. The highlands offers top class climbing routes, one of the world-best. Go climbing or go on a hike to explore the wilderness of the Deccan plateau, with ample trails and tracks. Most of the trails and climbing spaces face south, which implies that the rocks become quite hot during the day. See the endangered yellow-throated bulbul, as well as sloth bear and leopards, for whom the hills represent a home.

  • Around 1.5 hours from Bangalore. Go early morning to avoid heat. View from the top is good - River. Finished the trek in around 3.5 hours taking rests in between.  more »

  • This is my first hike in India after a long pause of hiking extensively in US and I loved it. Lot of rock - less trees. Since no trees, reach by 5:30 or 6:00 to avoid sun. Beautiful view - river/forre...  more »

  • Awesome place to have a one day trekking either you go alone or team. It’s worth of climbing up. If it’s first trekking make sure you have a good company. It’s not a place for who gets scared. It’s a place for summer trekking. You should start climbing before 7 a m or else your energy will drained out. You don’t find anything in top. Make sure you carry some healthy snacks and drinks. Awesome place for one day trekking. Please wear proper outdoor shoes. I really enjoyed this trekking, crazy piece of Rock. Asia’s largest Monolith. Just nail it. Thanks for the previous reviews those are made my day.
  • If you love trekking then this is the place to visit. The climb up the hill will be thrilling. The view above is mesmerizing. The real challenge is not to climb up but to climb down. This place is not for beginner or amateur trekkers.
  • A single Rock, A Temple below the Rock, A good Parking place in front of the Temple. A place to go for Trekking with Friends, 60K away from the city Bangalore. Youth will certainly like this place
  • It's a good one day trip from Bangalore. Being the Asia's largest monolith, it won't be easy to trek. I would suggest you to wear shoes with good grip. It's also not that far from the city.
  • Good place for a one day trip. Do plan your trip in early morning so that you don’t get the sun. Also, this place is good for trip in the winters. It’s very difficult to trek in the summertime and it’s closed during monsoon. The trek is very good and challenging with few very steep slopes. You need to be careful while coming down.
