One of the gigantic mountain peaks and first highest monolithic rocks in Asia, lying closer to Bangalore on the Magadi town which is around 50 kms from the Bangalore city. The hill rises to 1226 m above sea level the Savandurga hills are very unique in itself as it is made of only 2 boulders one is Billigudda (white granite rock) and other being Karaganda (black granite rock).


Savandurga is surrounded by the forest region coming under the Magadi town, here you can spot some of the wildlife like Elephants, Indian bears, snakes, leopards, deer’s and many more. The mountain is surrounded by the Manchinbele Dam on one side which acts as source of drinking water to the Magadi town and on the other side it has the T.G. halli Reservoir. the River Arkavathi passes around this hills through Manchinbele dam and TG halli Reservoir. This place is trekker’s paradise and one amongst few natural rock climbing sites of south India.


Coming to brief history of this place, once on the records this place was under the Hoysalas kingdom in the late 13th century who had constructed the forts on the way to the peak as spoken in the history. Later this place was conquered by the Magadi kingdom under the ruler Kempegowda who used this [place as the second capital of his kingdom in late 15th and early 16th century.


After Kempegowda this place was captured and ruled by the Wodeyar dynasty of Mysore which was later conquered by the Hyder ali transposed to Tippu sultan who used this place to store weapons during the 3rd Anglo Mysore war against the British later it was conquered by the British governor general Lord Cornwallis who called this place as savina kote called fort of death due to its stepy natural formation.


Kempegowda and Tippu Sultan were the main Kings, who built the forts at this place, during the British era. Savandurga was the location for the making of David Lean's movie A Passage to India.


We offers customized outing packages to the corporate teams and rock climbing enthusiasts. j The peak is around 4000 ft tall and trekking is moderate at the start and gets stepy as you go by, one needs to conserve a lot of energy and fitness to reach the peak, on the way to the peak you can find the wall castings of the fort build the rulers of kempe-gowda’s Magadi dynasty which marks the halfway trek. from this place on can view the statue of the Nandi on the peak and reach one should trek very carefully and slowly as its gets steepier at times but it’s worth a trek to reach the peak.


From the peak you can have a magnificent view of the Manchinbele dam and the local Magadi town which was hometown of Bangalore’s king Kempegowda. The panoramic view of the Manchinbele dam from the peak can be reached from the base on the way towards Bangalore on Magadi-Bangalore road.
