Here’s a guide to help you get fit for the trek in 4 weeks.
In case you’re just starting with a fitness routine, start slow and increase your pace everyday in the following manner –
Target completing a brisk walk of 5 km in 45 minutes when you begin
Gradually increase your pace by walking 5 km, 4 times a week.
As you become more comfortable, introduce jogging in your routine.
Progressively increase the distance you jog in a workout until you can complete 5 km in 35 mins.
If you prefer cycling over running, target covering 15 km in 60 minutes when you begin.
Progressively increase your pace to cover 20 km in one hour.
Skandagiri, also known as Kalavara Durga / Kalavara Betta, a mountain fortress located approximately 62 km from Bangalore city, and 3 km from Chikballapur in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is off Hyderabad-Bangalore Highway (NH7) and overlooks Nandi Hills and Muddenahalli. The peak at an altitude of about 1450 meters accessible from Kalavara village is picturesque, trekkers hotspot allowed to the public by Karnataka forest department and Karnataka Ecotourism Development Board.
Trekking trail starting from Papagni temple near the village Kalavarahalli passes through semi-dry vegetation, lush greenery. Ruins of the ancient fortress of Tipu Sultan at the top and the view from the tops adds a charm to the trek. Winters is the best time to visit this place to experience of being above the clouds. Viewing the rising sun above the cloud bed is enough to take away all the tiredness and fatigue of trekking to the peak and is equally reviving.
Skandagiri is the perfect weekend getaway for all those adventurous and wanderlust souls who are looking forward to doing something exciting!
