We started our journey from bangalore @ 7.30 AM and reached the destination @ 11 AM, we had to pick up a total of 40 people for the trip.

As we reached the place, we had a feel of the forest by its sign board "Savabadurgha State forest" right in front of the farm house that we all stayed.

As we got down from the bus, we walked towards a fenced area with lot of mango, coconut and so may trees on our way to reach our tents.

Individual tents was arranged for all of us, encircling our camp fire area for the night.A big pit of 7 feet was behind the tents to ensure that we don't disturb the animals.

We had a decent breakfast and jumped back in to the bus to travel few kilometers to start our first activity, "Cave Explorations".

As we got down from the bus, we saw a temple, where a small procession was happening behind the temple was the largest monolithic rock, it was really huge, should be at least twice the size of the Giza pyramids in Egypt.

(I have visited the pyramids) best part of it all, my eyes captured four human souls climbing the huge rock in the mid day sun. I enquired with the instructor along with us about them, he replied they should be foreigners or local people who take the best out of this place.

Their destination will be to reach a small temple

on the peak of this rock, fortunately we are not doing this activity, we are still no voice.

Cave Exploration:-

The Instructor strictly asked all to carry water with us.We started our journey towards the cave through bushes, pits, small rocks, no plain land to reach the natural caves.

Truly and honestly this is a natural cave, sometimes you have to crawl, jump, climb, all these as a team to reach the peak of the hill through these caves, this was a real test for our physic.

We all got dehydrated soon, the water helped us to get back to our toes.That was fun and also adventures.


To Rappel down the rocks, we had to climb a tree and then again through the rocks to reach the peak.

This was very exciting, all the possible safety measure were taken for this, each one of us tried to get this adventures experience.

Lunch break:-

We finished our Rappelling activity @ around 2PM and walked back few kilometers for the lunch. The lunch was good with Chicken dish for the Meat eaters.

Archery & Rope chain:-

After our lunch we did some easy activity like archery, we split ourselves in to team with a instructor for it to guide us.

Followed by that we had a swing down for a 30 feet high place all down to the ground by the rope, it was fun, a kind of free falling.


As time passed by we realized it was 5PM when we all about to have a wonderful experience of kayaking in a silent lake beside very huge rocks.

It was my first experience to do this activity, I don't know to swim, but I still had courage to do this activity, cause I love to do it, trusted on myself and the life jacket, sat on the very smallest kayak, only that was left for me and listened carefully to the instructor, but I could get only two words out of it, balance then control with the


Honestly, you need a lot of stamina to do this activity and a perfect body balance. I did it all and was very happy that I did it in style.

Night Stay:-

We walked back to the bus, and came back to the tents, Overall for all of us, it was a exciting and tiresome experience through out the day.

Once back to the tent, we managed with a rest room, that is what we could afford for... ha ha and got freshen up.

As usual, dark started to overtake the brightness, bonfire was daring the darkness, and we all started to make Merry on the effort we had put in the whole day by food and dance.

Early Morning:-

Later that night we all went for sleep inside our tent, it was very cold, and we could see the dew on our tents early that morning.

I am sure we all would have slept for few hours, but I woke up much early and came to the bone fire and started getting some heat, slowly few more people joined me and we had a nice walk to have our tea in the village.

On our way we saw the beautiful Savandurgah mountain (rock) looking at herself in the lake, the reflection of the rock on the lake in a natural way was worth watching.

We were three and I am sure we will cherish the moment when we remember that again. We had our Breakfast, and there were other set of new people to start their journey in Savandurgha.

When I saw them, felt they will surely have a adventures and tiresome experience. After our Break fast, we started back to Bangalore with lot of experience to share with other....

Overall the trip was adventures and a real test to our physic.

Savandurga Rocks!

We went through, Be sure that you plan properly with all basic stuff for a night stay.

Hope you find my experience good and useful.
