It was first time for me at the age of 55! I would strongly advise a good preparation for a few months unless you are physically very active person. It was blissful once you have reached 5th hill and beyond. But it will still be strenuous all the way to have the dharshan of Lord Shiva. Descending is altogether a different challenge.

Went with my friend.
Putting this into *Adventure* category is slightly wrong.
Comprised of Seven Hills, makes velliangiri difficult trek.
Very dangerous trek route, steep, high steps, some places just rocks are stacked.
Not even minimum amenities provided on the route.
No staying arrangement. So, one has to climb, go to the Top; have Darshan of Lord Shiva; return within 10-15 minutes. At the top, it's chill and windy.
We took 10 hours to climb and 9 hours to come down

We went 2 days back to velliangiri hills. It was a lifetime experience for me. I was coming from bangalore to coimbatore. By 5 am, i reached coimbatore. Then i joined with two of my friends and we went to isha around 6am. We took a holy bath in surya kund in isha and had breakfast in isha itself then we travelled to vellingiri. Since this was first time for me to travel such a big mountain, i was little nervous. Also i have a disc problem which made me more nervous. But somehow i want to give a try. In the foot hills, we bought that bamboo stick for 30 Rs. There was also security check by forest department to prevent taking match sticks and items which could cause fire. By exactly 9 am, we started climbing the hill. The first hill was very steep which made us more tired. I was sweating like never before. My body was not given this kind of exercise earlier so it was bit surprised i think. When we were climbing first hill, people who were approaching down started asking us about the distance to reach down. We realised how hard it is while climbing down from their reactions. After reaching half of first hill, i was thinking it is better to stop and return back since the whole energy in my body got drained through sweat. But i don't want to go back so we took some short breaks like 1to 2minutes and then started climbing again. Finally we reached top of first hill. In first hill, there is small temple which is the mark of end of first hill and start of 2nd hill. There is also small shop in first hill. We want to recharge our body. So we took lemon soda with salt. After spending 5 to 10 minutes, we started climbing to 2nd hill. While climbing to 2nd hill, i noticed some difference in my body. The sweat was not that much compared to first hill, seems the body is now somewhat ready and accustomed to fulfill my journey. I think if we cross the first hill, then we cross seven hills. Second hill was also steep like first hill with steps (broken rocks). In second hill, you can quench your thirst since there is water source present. This is called sunai ( water coming from rocks). It is the purest and tastiest water i ever had. We got some energy and that made us to climb second hill without much problem. Third hill was not that steep compared to first and second hill. So it was easy for us to get the top of third hill. Fourth hill was called thiru neer malai. Were you will find ashes coming from rocks. In fourth hill, there are no steps like first and second hill so we have climb through rocks. We can also see how much altitude we have reached by viewing the coimbatore city from there. Fourth hill we completed with good pace. Fifth hill also not that much problem for us. In sixth hill, the mountain goes down and raises. There is also water source in sixth hill. There is a siva linga beneath the water. Normally people use to take a dip in this water. From sixth hill, we can see the top of seventh hill. It is quite steep and also distance is more. We have to climb using both hands because the path is not clear. It took much energy as that of first hill. We also got cool air so which was quite refreshing. Finally we reached the top of hill at 3p.m. We got darshan of lord shiva and we spent some 20 to 25 minites at the top then started climbing down. Climbing down is difficult since the foot will it the rocks with some force which will be painful. After reaching mid of third hill, it became dark. So we have to depend on some light source to go down. Unfortunately we didn't get torch from the nearby shops. Luckily my friend was having mobile. So we used that and started climbing down. By 10 p.m we finally reached the foor hills.

This is my third visit to the Vellainkiri temple. Stunning views of nature. When you take dip in the small pond in the sixth hill beware of leeches.
Best time to visit is feb to may. It was a bit too difficult due to rain. You witness the mist even in March. The entire trek will test your stamina and i feel really great after each visit
