Poor Maintenance

We reached the base by 7.30 am and were welcomed by huge closed gates. When we enquired with the local flower vendors, they dished out a series of lies. They said the gate will open at 8, which happened only at around 8.25. They said we can walk up through the stirs on the side all the way up, where as, you can walk barely some distance after which there is another gate after the temple which is again locked and is supposed to be open at 8. We waited there for long and finally the "guard" comes at 8.30, takes his own sweet time to setup his table, chair etc and finally tells us that you have to walk / trek all the way up the hillock BAREFOOT.... It is a huge let down if you are a trekker. There are no sign boards, no information what so ever...

Ramanagara is around at a distance of 49 kms from Bangalore.
We started from kengeri ksrtc bus station at around 6:30 am in a ksrtc bus which headed to mysuru.
We got down at ramanagara ksrtc bus station at around 8:30 am.
We had a quick breakfast at a near by hotel at a reasonable price.
We took a local auto from the bus station to the srs hills which is at around 14 kms from the ramanagar ksrtc bus station.
We reached the hills in 20 minutes.
We started our trek at around 9:30 am and reached the peak by 12:00 pm and took the blessings of the lord sri revanasiddeshwara swami.
We got down the hills by 1:30 pm.
And again we took a ksrtc bus from srs to the ramanagara ksrtc bus station.
We Had our lunch at a near by hotel.
We started back to the Bangalore by 3:00 pm.
There are very frequent ksrtc bus available both the ways.

Recommendings :
-Do not trek during rainy / on high sunny days.
-Do not start the trek in empty stomach.
-have enough water bottles and other refreshments in the bag packs.
-Be careful about the bag packs as there are monkeys which might snatch the things away from you
-Be more careful while visiting with toddlers and elderly people.
As there are very small steps that are steep and slippery which might be comparatively more challenging to them.

*overall it was a tremendous trek which gave an extremely refreshing atmosphere
*definitely, one feels to re-trek
*as the trek can be completed soon within half a day, one gets enough time to visit a near by well known place called "janapada loka" (closed on Tuesdays).

SRS Hills - Amazing and Joy full Trek
Aug 2019
The SRS - Revana Siddeshwara Hills is amazing with awesome scenery at the top hill.

I visited SRS with family and this place can be reached easily from Ramanagara(14 km),Maddur(38 km)and Bangalore (63 km).No trekking/parking charges .At the bottom of the hill there are a Shiva temple and various shops available for snacks.As we started the trek, the climbing was not difficult since steps were craved and covered with sheet on the top with also grills around.The trek can be done in 30 minutes to the top hill.The monkeys on the way add fun .At one spot of the rock hill, its bit scary where need to be bit careful.Once we reached the top hill spent about 2 hours enjoying beautiful nature around.At one side of the hill there is lake view and on the other sides its surrounded by various other hills.The 300 feet high makes it exciting.At back of the top we need to step down to visit a temple if needed.

Overall I feel, this is great place to be with family and friends.

Awesome trek
Jun 2016 • Business
34 of us from our office visited this place yesterday for a night rappelling, trekking and camping. We went on bikes. We had tied up with Escape2Explore to help us with the rappelling and trekking. We reached around 9 pm at Ramanagaram, had tea and pakoras and then started for the rock where we had to do rappelling. it was 20 metre rock and we really enjoyed rappelling. Then started on the trek of 1.5 hours - a combination of rocky terrain, 300 steps and a steep 50 steps closure to the top. Once we reached the top, we were rewarded with an excellent view of lights. We camped there with bonfire, some light booze and dinner. We slept in our sleeping bags, saw the sunrise in the morning and trekked back down. We had a nice south indian breakfast and left back for our homes.

Fantastic view for shutterbugs and a medium trekking choice
Apr 2015 • Couples
To reach this place(from Bengaluru),
1. Drive on Mysore Road and cross Ramanagara town (works around 50kms).
2. Drive left after the Sign board and drive further 10kms straight on Kanakapura Road
3. Go inside the Arch(on your right) and drive for about 2kms to reach SRS Betta

Sri Revana Siddheshwara (SRS) Betta is about 3000 feet ASL.
This place can be reached easily from Ramanagara, Magadi and Maddur.
The road is not fantastic but small yet manageable.

Best time to visit this place is in the morning, so that you can wind up the trek by noon.

The steps on the western side leads to the top of the hill. You can drive till the bottom of the hill, where the steps begin and also where there is parking space.

Though climbing is not very difficult but can be scary to the weak/faint hearted; there are enough grills though.

Avoid this trek on a sunny/rainy day and carry sufficient water, energy drink/snacks and a small backpack. Dont plan to carry any loose items in hand (you dont know when you would need to grip suddenly).

Overall, the trekking experience was fantastic and thrilling (i was doing it after a long long time) and tiring as well.
The stretch between the top of the mountain and the temple ahead(slightly below) and back to the top is a little scary if there is wind/rain.This is where SRS temple is.
