Ballalarayana Durga – Bandaje falls trek

Daily Tour 2 days 1 night Availability: September 16, 2022
4CJ7+WWX Ballala Rayana Durga Fort, Madugundi, Karnataka 574228, India Long Weekend Getaways, Local experiences

Description

Forts have always had a certain charm in themselves, and if they are made on certain heights, hidden from plain sight with fog, clouds, and mist, the charm just doubles. Such an amazing fort in the Dakshina Kannada district of Karnataka is the Ballalarayana Durga Fort, which lies on the top of a hill and can only be reached by trekking through the dense vegetation that grows on the slopes.

And this trek and camp experience in the Western Ghats fulfills that very purpose, to take you to a beautiful fort, high-up in the hills and shrouded by a cover of thick clouds. And the best thing about this place is that there is no network connectivity, making this the perfect experience of camping, trekking and offbeat.

Starting from the guesthouse that will also act as your base camp for the activity, you will start the trek to the top at about 9 in the morning, and reach the peak in about 4 hours. Spend some time at the top taking in views of the famous Charmadi Ghat Hill and the South Kendra view, get the most perfect pictures here and return back to the base camp. To keep your strength and spirits high throughout the activity, you will be enjoying delicious local cooked meals.
