A small, yet captivating hillock near a rustic hamlet called Sathnuru, the Kabbaladurga (3,600ft) is the home to the Goddess Kabbalamma; this is where the hillock got its name from. Situated at a distance of 70km from Bangalore and 20km from Kanakpura, this hummock makes for a fascinating night trekking near Bangalore.
With a historic fort at the top, trekking in Kabbaladurga (night trek around Bangalore) gets even more enticing and appealing. Also, since it is surrounded by scenic villages and smaller settlements, it offers delightful views of the country life across the vicinity.
Many devotees undertake the climb to pay homage to the goddess while others take the hike to see the old fort, which now is in ruins. The gradient of the slopes of this hillock is quite high. Climbs are attempted along only one of the four faces of the steep cliff. Kabbaldurga night trekking can take anywhere between 40 minutes to one-and-a-half hour, depending on your hiking ability.
