  • Trip introduction

    This night trek to Kunti Betta takes you up a fun climb in the dark of the night. You'll use flashlights to climb the easy 2 km stretch, with alert senses and tingling nerves, listening to the sounds of nocturnal animals and birds as you make your way up with your group. There are some sections of rocky outcrops and boulders to be climbed, and you'll enjoy the feeling of being the only ones in the world. At the peak, you will unwind around a campfire and listen to stories about the rocky hill. You'll have a couple of hours to drift off to sleep in under open skies, and you'll wake up to a gorgeous sunrise over the Pandavapura Lake.

    Destination

    Kunti Betta is a rocky hill situated 125 kms from Bangalore, in the quaint village of Pandavapura. The hill features paths that take you over huge boulders and rocks which gets steeper the further you ascend. From the peak, you will get splendid views of the Pandavapura lake and sugarcane fields. The Pandavapura village and Kunti Betta are part of many historical folk tales that date back to the Mahabharatha. It is said that when the Pandavas were sent into exile, they stayed here for a short while and their mother Kunti fell in love with the hill, thus christening it Kunti Betta.

    Destination highlights

    • Climb over boulders and scramble over rocks to summit Kunti Beta.
    • Experience the thrill of trekking in the night.
    • Get spectacular views of the Pandavapura Lake and sugarcane fields from the peak.
