  • Trip introduction

    Embark on a quick, one-day trek to Kunti Betta for the perfect outdoors adventure. On the trek, you'll find yourself climbing over giant boulders and skipping over rocky sections, as you navigate a relatively-easy trail to the top of Kunti Betta. From several view points along the way, as well as from the top, you'll catch panoramic views of the sprawling plains surrounding the hill. Another highlight of your trip, you'll visit the Thonnur Lake to grab spectacular sunset views in the evening before returning back to Bangalore.

    Destination

    Located close to the city of Mysore, accessible via a 4-hr drive from Bangalore, Kunti Betta is a towering hill that sticks out among the surrounding plains. The hill is covered with enormous boulders painted in shades of brown and grey, presenting an exciting challenge for trekkers looking to scale the hill. Kunti Betta was named after Kunti, mother of the Pandavas, who are said to have lived in these hills during their exile.
