The day

Start your day with hill ranges. Away from the city, drive through ranges you did not know existed nearby Bengaluru. Choose any nice spot and stop. Be amazed at the sudden pristine forest cover. It will push us to take a pause. Go explore at your pace – butterflies, birds or the fort remnants scattered around. Will you be lucky to spot the elusive bulbul?


You may have heard of this place before, perhaps as a pilgrimage, which it is. But did you know about the fort? Many temples, but what about the fort and the gates? How about a little excursion to locate some inscriptions and hero-stones? The place still holds its dear history, scattered in the hills. Observe and learn. Learn to read ruins, appreciate them.


A bio hotspot with a large variety of flora and fauna, you get to observe and spot things in nature. You could spot many butterflies, birds or who knows that elusive bulbul!


These amazing hills around Bengaluru, do their rocks say something? Do the hills say something? Did someone say a river or two begin here?
