Shivaganga Hills Trek: A Spiritual and Scenic Adventure

Shivaganga Hills, also known as Dobbaspet Hills, stands tall amidst the Deccan Plateau, offering a captivating blend of spiritual significance and natural beauty. Located around 60 kilometers from Bangalore, this trek is perfect for a weekend getaway, attracting both pilgrims and adventure enthusiasts.

Boarding on the Journey:

The trek begins near the main temple at the foothills, where you can seek blessings before starting your ascent. The well-defined path, lined with small shops selling refreshments, gradually takes you higher.

Spiritual Significance:

As you ascend, you'll encounter several ancient cave temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, adding a spiritual dimension to the trek. These cave temples, carved into the rock face, offer a glimpse into the region's rich history and cultural heritage.

Challenging Climb:

The initial part of the trek is relatively easy, with well-laid steps and gentle slopes. However, the latter half becomes steeper and more challenging, requiring some physical exertion. Iron railings are provided along most sections for added support.

Reaching the Peak:

Reaching the summit is rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. You can see the sprawling plains, distant hills, and even glimpses of the city in the distance. The cool breeze and serene atmosphere provide a welcome respite from the climb.

Descent and Exploration:

The descent follows the same trail, offering a chance to appreciate the diverse flora and fauna you might have missed on the way up. You can also visit the Olkal Teertha, a sacred spring known for its healing properties.

Things to Remember:
  • The Shivaganga Hills trek is considered moderate to challenging, depending on your fitness level.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothes suitable for hiking.
  • Carry sufficient water and snacks, as there are limited options available on the way.
  • Be mindful of monkeys, which are known to snatch belongings. Keep your valuables secure.
  • Respect the religious significance of the place and dress modestly.
Beyond the Trek:

Shivaganga Hills offers more than just a trek. You can visit the ancient Ganesha temple, explore the nearby caves, or simply relax and enjoy the scenic beauty. If you're looking for a longer adventure, combine the trek with a visit to the nearby Devarayanadurga hills or explore the Namachilume deer park.
