The peak is home to the temple of goddess Kabbalamma and had derived its name from the temple and the ruins of a fort at the peak. It is green, rocky and serene making it an ideal weekend getaway. The view from the top is absolutely breath-taking and perfect for trekkers and climbing enthusiasts. The climb is as difficult as you want it to be.
