Skandagiri is one of the most popular trekking destinations located around Bangalore and is frequented by countless adventure enthusiasts every year seeking a refreshing break from the stressful lives. This eponymous hill is located at a distance of just 70 kms from the IT city and is a great choice for people intending to enjoy an enthralling trek on the weekend. While the day trek to Skandagiri enables the participants to enjoy the natural beauty of the region, the night trek to the hill top proves to be an completely unique and memorable experience. The trekkers not only get to experience the panoramic view of the surroundings under a starlit sky, but also to revel in the amazing beauty of the sun rising over the horizon at dawn. 

 

This 8 km long trail for trekking near Bangalore takes the participants across rugged terrains and six concentric fortification walls, before they reach the summit situated at a height of 4429 feet above sea level. Although the trekking trail is considered to be relatively easy, the participants need to be extremely careful while traversing the path that is covered in dense grass and bushes. They make the path extremely slippery especially during the night, when the dew adds to the moisture level of the surface. It is also one of the major reasons why the Skandagiri night trek should not be undertaken during the monsoon season.

 

An ancient Hindu math, known as Papagni Math that houses the idols of Goddess Parvati and several local deities, is located at the place from where the trek commences. It is quite common for trekkers to visit this religious center before starting their ascent to the hilltop. The uphill ascent is completed in the wee hours of the morning leaving the participants with enough time to enjoy a bonfire and take some rest. The most exciting part of the trek is watching the spectacular view of the rising sun at the break of the dawn. This sight is enough to take away all the tiredness and exhaustion that the trekkers might feel after the overnight trip.

 

The trekkers can spend time enjoying the sunrise and the breathtaking view of the surroundings being washed in the first light of the morning. Most trekkers are so enchanted by the view that they make a habit of undertaking the Skandagiri night trek at regular intervals to refresh their memories. After spending some time on the hill top in the morning, the trekkers start their downward descent to reach the base in a couple of hours while feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated.
