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.

Muthathi and bheemeshwari

Bheemeshwari comes under Cauvery wildlife range. Many wildlife has been encountered very often. These days trekking and other activities are banned from forest department. Only acticities that can be carried out is with jungle resorts from karnataka tourism department. Which too costly. They have packages and few activities and night stay. Which will vary according to the weather around and atmosphere. Initially people were allowed to go near the water in bheemeshwari and around the jungle. But nowadays all the activites are banned and monitoried by forest officials. Its a thick jungle with flora and fauna. Kayaking, boating can be carried out only if tourists book a one night package. Day out is a utter waste in bheemeshwari.

Muthathi (or Muttatti) is a settlement arranged on the banks of the Kaveri waterway close Malavalli in the Indian condition of Karnataka. It is encompassed by a thick woods which is the home of the Kaveri Wildlife Sanctuary. The area has relationship with Sita (the spouse of Rama) and Anjaneya (a Hindu god), and there is a little sanctuary committed to Anjaneya close to the town. This very much associated bumpy spot is open from Bangalore through direct transport/private vehicles.
