My Experience in Climbing Kabbal Durga

The fort is built over a 250m high monolithic rock, with rather steep surfaces on 3 sides and less steep surface on the fourth side. We climbed along that side of the rock, avoiding the steps that are cut into the rock. The climb is along an average slope of about 40 degrees, and gets quite steep in certain places, where one needs to be careful as there is nothing to break ones fall. After about 40 mins, we reached the top of the rock. The top is quite flat, and has a few stone structures including a temple and something that, looked like horse stables (I wonder how they got horses up here!). It was already noon and was quite hot, but it was very cool inside the temple. The views from the top were very good. We could see a number of rocky hills rising up from the ground all over us. Other than a few trees and thorny shrubs and cacti, there is not much vegetation on this hill.


How to get kabbal Durga

On the way to Malavalli from Kanakapura after 13kms there is a small place by name Satnoor. Here one has to take a deviation to go to Kabbal village. From Channapatna on Bangalore-Mysore road also this place can be reached.Though there is less frequency of state govt. buses, there are few private buses operating.

This is My experience of Trekking & Climbing at kabbal Durga.
