The trek to the top is moderate, bit tiresome, as you climb the rocky steps most of the time. There is a temple on the top as well and many(elderly women/kid/all) climb it for that purpose as well and hence can get crowded at times....More

Starts steep, flattens out for a little while, and then becomes brutally steep. Carry water. Slippery when wet as it is typical Deccan granite monolith. Two routes up, one takes you through the spring half way up (Vannakal Theertha), the other straight up a boulder...More
