Many people go to Skandagiri Hills just for night trekking and to watch the breathtaking sunrise. If you would like to go for a night trek carry water and a torch with you. Reach the foot of the hill by 1 am and then start trekking. It takes around 2-3 hours to trek the hill. You need to make sure that you reach the top by 5 am to see the sunrise. Sometimes the Government bans the night trek, so you need to find out if the night trek is allowed at that time before visiting. Winter season (December to January) is the best time if you want to see the ocean like clouds from the top of the hill. If you are visiting at night time then make sure you carry a map of some sort as there will be no one to help for directions.
