      trekking during night is not possible and better not to try. You can trek in the evening and reach the peak before dark and camp there for the night to watch the sunrise.. Permission is not required but taking a local guide is highly advised.

    Better not try trekking at night. Camping at night can be dangerous on hill top because of elephants. There is a water source on the peak and there are instances of elephants coming there for water.
