The trek takes you deep into the wilderness near Nandi Hills to reach a 4,700 feet tall summit of Skandagiri. En route, you'll visit the ancient Papagni Temple, accessed after navigating a tricky trail of boulders and shrubs over the mountain slope. A short trek of 3 hours, the trip takes you trekking over a moderately challenging route, perfect for fit beginners as well as experienced trekkers.
