What we like

A thrilling and an equally challenging trek that takes you along the walls of Tipu Sultan's Fort!

  • Gentler slopes which gradually increase to steeper ones towards the finishing point
  • Amazing camping adventures
  • View of rocky trails with scanty vegetation
  • Excellent place for photography
  • Nandi towers at the end of the journey

Billigudda is the most preferred peak for trekking courtesy its gentler slopes. Through the course of the 4-km trek, you come across the walls of the Tipu Sultan’s Fort at various levels of the journey. The seven walls of the fort indicate the thrilling journey that lies ahead!
