  • Trip introduction

    The night trek to Narayangiri hill takes you up to 3800 feet, to summit a rugged mountain in Karnataka, in the dark of the night. With natural caves and forests to be explored, this trek gives you a real feeling of adventure. It is a moderate trek of 8 kms to the summit and from the peak you can see the temple of Laxmi Narayana and the remains of the fort that encircle the mountain. You’ll end the night with a campfire, and settle into sleeping bags around the fire as you fall asleep under the open skies.

    The next day, you'll head to Manchanabele for a fun session of kayaking or a peaceful swim. This thrilling combo makes for a fantastic weekend plan with a bunch of adventurous friends.

    NOTE: Sleeping bags will be handed out at the start of the trek, and each participant will have to carry their own.

    Destination

    Narayangiri hill is about 76 kms out of Bangalore and is one of the lesser known peaks in Karnataka. From the summit, you can see the lights twinkling in the distance from nearby villages and you’ll sleep under a starlit sky, next to a campfire.

    The backwaters of Manchanabele are perfect for outdoor water activities. There are many boulders to jump off and try new diving techniques and you can also try your hand at kayaking.

    Destination highlights

    • Trek through dense forests to summit a peak at night.
    • Strap on your headlamps and go scrambling over boulders and into caves.
    • Sleep around a campfire under open skies.
    • Go kayaking in the cool backwaters of Manchanabele.
