Sandeep 's World >> Trekkalogs >> Rangaswamy Betta

Trek to Rangaswamybetta in August 2003

Another memorable trek with Ravi Shankar (The Wild) [1]. My third one after Maribetta and Siddarabetta caves. Rangaswamybetta (Rangaswamy Betta) is situated in the midst of the Bannerghatta forest. 55 kms from Bangalore towards Kanakapura it has an altitude of around 1900 feets.

Catching breath on the way to the top ... it was a nice enjoyable walk ... with a descent slop and enuf shade ...

Another break

It took us arnd 2-3 hours to reach the top. with lots of breaks in between.
