At 11 PM, the trip departs from Bengaluru. Once everyone has agreed to go, the trek leaders will have you take part in various activities to help you forget about any leftover ideas from work. The enjoyable activities entail getting to know the trekkers who will become your travelling companions. 

Even after accomplishing all of that, sleep is still crucial for you to enjoy the trip, so think of it as taken care of. 

You will eventually come across a magnificent fort that will instantly transfer you to a whole different universe after wandering through the village for a considerable amount of time in the dark. To find the seven stone doors, proceed through the fort’s walls. The majority of the trail rocks by traversing boulders and steps cut into massive rocks. But don’t worry trek leaders will be there to encourage you and make sure nobody gets left behind at any time. 

When you cross these doors and arrive at the Shankareswar temple, the ascent is complete. The trek’s halfway point is this temple, which is located directly at the top. Take time to enjoy the breathtaking view from the summit because it is unlike any other you have ever seen.
