- The hill is made of granite stone, sparking in its natural occurrence. The larger rocks have made Makalidurga popular among rock climbers.
- On the top stands an old fort, now in ruins. It has quite a history to it.
- The start of the climb is marked by a Krishna temple and you complete your darshan at the top with a temple of Shiva and Nandi.
- You can see the Gunjar Lake-in the shape of South America, outlined by many grasslands and manicured farms from the top. A web of railroads completes the rural landscape.
