Savandurga is about 1.5 hrs away from Bangalore City. The route isn’t that scenic. This the largest monolith in Asia. The trek is quite challenging. Avoid taking kids along younger than 6 yrs. Try reaching early in the mornings to avoid the heat.

An entry fee of Rs. 450/person is charged starting from last month. The fee is made compulsory by the forest department. The fee includes just a guide, nothing else.
