We started around 6 30am we reached savandurga by 8am, on the way the view of machanbele dam was soo satisfying. The trek on savandurga was fun as it was sloppy with water. But at the end it was cool weekday trek for us.

It's been 3-4months I have been there, so I don't that's required. 3-4 months is still fresh, they might have changed the rules now (maybe or may not be).
