The Oxford dictionary defines the term ‘monolith’ as “a large single upright block of stone, especially one shaped into or serving as a pillar or monument.” And with the Madhugiri Hill, located approximately 100 kms faraway from Bangalore within the Tumkur district of Karnataka, being the second largest monolith in Asia after Savandurga, you’ll be sure it’s not getting to be your average fort trek.
The trek up Madhugiri Fort sets itself apart due to a myriad of reasons, the foremost obvious of which being the fairly challenging climb up to the height and therefore the intricate architecture adorning the traditional fort that follows you all throughout the trail.
