A majestic sight of the Sankareswara temple awaits at the halfway point of the trek. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and according to the localities here, it was the resting spot of Kempe Gowda during the summer months and there is also a small pond here that was built by him.

Surpassing the temple, there lies a whole new world to be explored as the trek continues through a small jungle that adds an element of surprise in between the journey. As the cave concludes, hikers will find themselves at the grassland top of the hill, the Sankara Kumbhi, surrounded by huge boulders that look as though those huge boulders are guarding the summit.
