  • Trip introduction

    Spend your holiday away from the city on a trek in the scenic mountains of Sakleshpur near Bangalore. Your adventure begins with a trek to Agni Gudda, or the fiery mountain. Climbing over lush, green trails in the countryside, you'll reach the peak and enjoy stunning views of the valley. After descending down from the mountain, you'll visit the nearby Magajahalli waterfalls and take a dip in its cool water. The next day, you'll also visit the star-shaped Manjarabad Fort to explore ruins that date back to the 17th century. This Sakleshpur trek is a great option for travellers looking for a nature-rich, weekend adventure near Bangalore.

These mountains are decorated with vast plantations of coffee and spices that give an aromatic touch to sprawling expanse of the monsoon-fed forests. The waterfalls breathe away your inhibitions with cool water, making way for fun memories of a short weekend spent in nature.
