Savandurga (Kannada is a hill 60 km west of Bangalore (Karnataka, India) off the Magadi road , in India. The hill is considered to be among the largest monolith hills in Asia. The hill rises to 1226 m above mean sea level and forms a part of the Deccan plateau. It consists of peninsular gneiss, granites, basic dykes and laterites. The Arkavathi river passes nearby through the Thippagondanahalli reservoir and on towards Manchanabele dam.
My personal experience.
We left for the trek at 11:30 pm. its only 60km from my place. we took mahadevpura-silkboard-electronic city-nice road-mysore road track to reach the place. The way is quite scary as you will not find a single light on the way. Roads are in bad condition too.
Reached the place at 1:30 am. and started to trek. The trek is easy in the beginning phase but get tougher and tougher. There will be a time where you might give up. Don’t be afraid to give up because those mountains are quite slippery and scary too. Don’t push yourself too hard for a small adventure like that.
Always follow the mark on stones to reach the top. Don’t miss electric line on top of your head. Its important to keep track of these 2 things.
The view up there is beautiful and amazing. Its worth an experience.
