If you are looking for a medium difficulty trekking near Banglore, head to Madhugiri in Tumkur district. Its about 100Km north of Banglore. Its a good alternative to Nandi hills which is getting very crowded nowadays. Here you will face very less crowd on the hill. The steps are marked well and except a small stretch its  not very difficult to climb. However there is one stretch which is very steep and you have to be very slow and careful.


Since it’s a rocky hill without any trees it’s better to start early before sun heats it up. We started by 4am from Banglore and reached there around 6.30am. It takes about 2Hrs to reach the top of the hill & about an hour to come down. Few small shops are available down for food and beverages.
