To experience real big trekking, one must have a lot of courage and energy to reach the mighty Saddle peak. Also, should be mentally and physically prepared to conquer the peak.
Trekking to Saddle Peak
We have really started very early to reach the peak and come back because of the early sunset which is around 5 PM and also the forest department suggests reaching the base before 4:30 PM to ensure the safety guidelines. There will be a taxi which takes you to the base of the mountain from where you need to start the journey. The trek will take you to the stream about 2 hours from the base which will look quite easy with nature pleasing surrounding in the tropical forest. But the real journey starts only after you cross the stream.

You will also get a guide to explore the places while on the track and also help you stick on the right track. There are many huts and benches placed for trekkers to rest while taking a hike to the Peak.
