Bilikal Rangaswamy Betta


Bilikal Ranganathaswamy Betta is located around 80km from Bangalore in kanakapura. The hill is dedicated to lord Ranganatha swamy. The peak height is 3780 feet. The meaning of bilikal in kannada is bili means White and Kal means rock or stone. Bilikal Rangaswamy Betta has a place with the Forest Reserve and is loaded with bush woodland. Elephants and other medium estimated natural life creatures can be seen in these forest. The vegetation of the slope is average of high slopes. The vegetation is entirely thick particularly in post storm season. The connecting timberland's are known not elephants and other untamed life endemic to the region. The perspective from the top is unimaginable as should be obvious the hillocks from the encompassing Kanakapura. There is a yearly celebration held once every year on Jan fourteenth on the highest point of this spot to proclaim the eminence of the Gods of the sanctuaries arranged at these spot. Last strech (around 10 km) of the ride is total off-roading which needs utmost careful while riding till the top.The hill summit can be come to by trekking or by means of a substitute track available from Kanakapura but it’s completely banned. I wonder as the days passes many of the beautiful spot will be dominated by inhumane activities. Its quite stilthy and unnerving development to see these spots losing its value because of humans.
