Gudibande, which litreally translates to ‘A temple on top of a rock’ in Kannada is a 17th Century fort built by a chieftain Byre Gowda. This sunrise trek will take to you one of the most unexplored forts in this region which is said to be a concise replica of the Madhugiri Fort. Though the trail is not as daunting as the Madhugiri fort trail, the views from the top of the Gudibande fort are unmatched to any other. Atop the fort is an ancient Shiva temple that is home to one of the 108 Jyotirlingas. Once on the top, there’s plenty to explore around in the ruins all the while stunning views of the mighty Byrasagara reservoir accompany you. We’ll conclude the trip with a visit to the Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple at the foot of the Nandi Hills which is home to a Pushkarni where you can get an amazing fish spa while you get lost in the peace the temple offers.
