Trekking in Badami

Can you think of a better way to explore this rock-cave town than trekking through the beautiful paths? Trekking in Badami will leave you with an immense amount of appreciation for land and nature. Upon reaching the summits, you will be blessed with the view of the forts and temples from the hills.  

The best way to see Badami is undoubtedly to trek up the Northern Hills through the pathway between the rocks. A few of the most popular spots to go trekking in Badami are the Badami Fort, Shivalaya, Temple Caves to Mahakuta and the Bhutanatha Temple. Discover Badami by foot with a water bottle, backpack and camera in hand for the warm and lovely pictures you can remember it by later.  

Trekking in Badami is also beginner friendly and is a good spot to do your first trek. The paths are safe and the land has good grip. You can choose to look at this hike up the hills as a lovely walk in the afternoon or as an adventure jungle trek if you are up for a challenge. Be prepared to encounter more rocks and small, insignificant structures built by the Chalukyans and learn about how the dry forests here can source potential medicine, fruits, gum, fuel, food, fodder and oil yielding plants. There are also a number of rare plants found here like the Purple Witch plant belonging to the Scrophulariaceae family and Graham’s Groundsel belonging to Compositaea  family.  

Travel tip: Badami is best visited in the months of October-March but are also said to be charming in the months of July-August before the heavy rains start and make the paths unmountable.
