Rangaswamy Hills

About sixty kilometers from Bengaluru, on the Kanakpura road is the dense thorny shrub forests of the Rangaswamy hills.  The base can be accessed either from Doddamaralvadi (after Harohalli) or from Kanakpura.  A perennial stream skirts the hill base that disappears deep into the valley.  A small cave temple blends in these serene forests of Rangaswamy Hills.

The steep 2 ½ hours walk to the top ends at a cliff that offers a breath taking view of the vast green forest cover. The flat top is ideal for camping. It’s also a wonderful place for cross-country cycling and Cliff Rappelling.
