I have been to this place two times, but climbed the hill only once.

It is located away from Magadi. It is advisable to take your own vehicle as there is bus till Magadi, but after that you'll have to take auto or some other means. There are a few private vehicles that go that way which I think is not so safe.

Sharing auto will be a better option if you choose public transport. Once you reach that place, you'll find a temple and a little further, there is a forest, dry deciduous forest which is not so explorable as there are too many thorny bushes and towards your left, if you walk straight, you will reach the hill and place to climb the hill.

It is advisable to choose a cloudy day or cool day for trekking, or else the sun is killing by the time you reach above and get back. Carry good amount of water. You will also get juice and stuff above after you climb.

There is a little temple like structure which is ruins of the past. The view is beautiful from above the hill. You will really feel good once you are up and all that tireness just vanishes and the cool air soothes your mind and heart.

Sun might ruin all this if you reach there by afternoon on a sunny day, so keep a check on the whether forecast before you go. It is a hillock with 2 hills, white hill(bili betta) and black hill(kari betta). It takes around 2 hours to climb the hill and come back and of course excluding the time spent over there. So it is totally worth spending a day in savan durga.

You don't get proper lunch over there as it is a village and there are no hotels, so its better to pack lunch before hand.You will find a few monkeys on the hill. Not dangerous though, but you can find many monkeys below, near the forest side.You can also get coconut water before climbing the hill, it is better to have a drink before you climb.I would recommend this place for trekking if you are feeling a little adventurous and would want to go somewhere nearby to Bangalore. As this is not obviously the best place for trekking.
