The Unknown and Hardcore Trekking Heaven Garudanagiri Fort Hill or Legendary ಏಳು ಸುತ್ತಿನ ಕೋಟೆ (Elu Suttina Kote) is about 205km from Bengaluru, 175km from Mysuru. What a place, what a trek. The place gets the name from Cholda Dynasty since guards used to protect their king like Garuda bird protects Lord Vishnu. One needs to start the trek from Sri Chandramouleshwara Gudi, which is below the hill. There are stone steps all the way to the top. The trek to the top is refreshing with eye soothing nature all around. Ancient temples are present at the top, which includes idols of Sri Anjanaya Swamy, Sri Subramanya Swamy, Sri Ganesha Swamy, Sri Parvatha Amma, Sri Garuda Swamy and Sri Shankareshwara Linga, Sri Nonambeshwara Swamy Linga, Sri Sadeshwara Swamy Linga. The view from top is jaw breaking especially watching the fort. Looking for a once in a life time trekking experience, this is the place to be. Thus making this a must visit picnic place with friends and family
