- Carry at least 1-2 liter water per person and food since there aren't a lot of places to eat at- People planning to indulge in adventure sports activity need to get permission from the District forest officer at Ramanagaram and pay Rs 125/- per head as entry fee- There is no fees to climb the rock but there will be some local guides who may assist you for a payment if needed- Since the rocks can be wet early morning, it is best to wear rubber soled shoes- Consumption of Alcohol is strictly prohibited on the hills

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

Close to the nature. Offers trekking opportunity in Karnataka. Untouched beauty without the presence of commercialized buildings or cafes. Provide serene ambiance and is a different picnic spot.

  What's not so Great?

It is difficult to reach Savandurga due to lack of connectivity via airways and railways. Accomodation facilities are not available, and camping is the only option. It can be quite difficult to trek here in rainy season.

For Whom

If you are adventure enthusiast, Savandurga will help to ignite your enthusiasm. You can trek to the summit of Savandurga hill. This place will also provide calmness to all the nature lovers with its untouched beauty and presence of trees and greenery everywhere.
