Cool Revisiting history at Channarayana Durga: Trekking Near Bangalore

I do not know if this would qualify for the travelogue but i thought this is one place which is so near to bangalore and very less frequented by people.
I am not writing up the details as my close friend had penned it and was published in bangalore mirror. So i am attaching the article with additional pics.

Article Courtesy: Bangalore Mirror and My friend Srinidhi.

It is there after the last pic, sorry for that.

Mods,
Is it possible to rearrange the pdf to appear first.

Nice pictures. It is indeed a lovely place. It is Channarayana Durga, near Madhugiri. Madhugiri is in Tumkur district around 100 km from Bangalore. You will have to take a deviation just before Madhugiri.

Ideal for a one day trip for trekking enthusiasts. The fort is in a surprisingly good condition.

Really seems to be a nice place. So where do you need to branch off from NH4?

Take a right turn near Dobbspet towards Madhugiri. After Koratagere, take the left turn which goes to Siddara betta.

There is some confusion here. The place is listed as Devarayanadurga and not Channarayandurga.

Devarayanadurga - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Are we talking about the same place. I was planning to go there over the weekend.

@ampere,
Devarayanadurga is different place and Channarayandurga is different. Devarayanadurga is very near to Tumkur.
You cannot go to Channarayandurga with family as you need to climb the rocks over there whereas Devarayanadurga can reached by vehicles easily.

The problem is that for both these places you need to turn at Dobbspet. Hence the confusion. Thanks for clearing this.
