Details

Around 70 km from Bangalore off of the Kanakapura road, lies the Rangaswamy Betta or Bilikal Betta. Belonging to the forest reserve, the Hill is covered in shrub forest. Every year locals from the surrounding area climb this hill to celebrate a festival at the Ranganathaswamy temple at the top. The way they have been following throughout the years has turned into a standard trekking trail.

The trail takes you through the forest. The first half kilometer is comparatively even and easy. But as you move ahead, the forest grows denser throwing some steep slopes which makes the hike an enthralling one. This steep climbs and descends will definitely test your workout days, extensively. The even lands in between the trail let you rest and grasp the beautiful scenery in front of you. On summiting, you find yourself in the vast flat field with the temple on the side. Different slopes in the Kanakapura range, including Kabbaladurga, Savandurga can all be seen from here. The trek implies getting the dawn on the East, making it one major quiet minute. Still confused about where to go this weekend? Pick this.

One of the best way to spend your weekend if you are looking for short trek and crazy fun around Bangalore.Would call it chota packet bada dhamaka!!The pickup was on time... reaching the campsite our very famous Mubarak gave us an insite of the itenary. The campsite looked amazing.. just looks like as you want your weekend to start.. those tents, music, campfire and lights was just perfect.. it was organised for a different team though... we had been to campsite to freshen up, use washrooms(decent one), tea and biscuits , grab walking stick to help us climb up and use the same for campfire when we reach the peak..The 20mins drive into the nature to reach to base of the Narayangiri trek was simply awesome for me...that cool breeze, freesh pure air ti breathe.. zero traffic.. Its a small well maintained village..We trekked roughly for about close to an hour.. its an easy trek to the peak.. Upon reaching the peak, noticed a temple, witnessed the beauty of Ramanagara under the dark sparkled with street lights... we also get to see Savandurga mountain. What an amazing way to spend the whole night admist the beauty of nature.....all your stress just vanishes away admiring and waiting for the sunset... After the sunset, we descended down and reached back to campsite. Had a superlicious breakfast and tea before we leave for Manchinbele dam. I Was pretty excited as it was my first time Kayaking and swimming in a lake.. It was an amazing experience for me.. the campsite in Manchinbele was top notch.. infact we all wished we stayed back here to extend this fun.I must admit this place is already in my bucket list for another visit.I loved kayaking in the lake... jusy lost in the Beauty of nature..rowing slowly.. brought up a smile on my face as I type this. Must try is the dive from the rock into the cold lake... i bet would want to do this on repeat.. and you dont have to worry about safety.. as we alll have to compulsorily wear life jackets.. hence though you don't know swimming.. nothing to worry.. you will still have fun as you float since tje life jac9 doesn't let you drown.. we spent a good amount of time here.. just didn't want to leave.. but time doesn't stop.. yet took back fabulous memory back home... Overall experience was amazing, wonderful, beautiful etc.. And ofcourse not to forget this was all possible because of our super duper trek leads - ever green famous Nadeem, our favourite Mubarak... And two other budding trek leads.. all packed with good sense of humour.I 100% recommend this place!! Tips:-Make sure you carry sleeping bag(provided by the team) and enough warm clothes(from home ofcourse) to keep yourself warm while you wait for sunrise.Carry extra pair of clothes as you cannot stop yourself from getting into the water.Carry snacks, food.. you will need it as soon as you come out of the water.. That's it!! Happy kayaking and trekking!! - by Poojitha Prakash for Narayangiri Sunrise Trek with water activities organized by Escape2explore .
