Finally on the last day we venture into the hills. We reached the bus stand where our guide was waiting for us. We took a local bus to Gallibeedu where the guide asked us to get down and took us on a long walk through the fields until we reached the base of the trek.The trek starts slow, which us covering long distances but without any steep climb. We walked for around 2 hours through forests, dense bushes and clean open land.
2. Nishani Betta Trek: This lesser known trekking spot is part of the Brahmagiri Range and Tala Cauvery wildlife sanctuary at a height of 1270 mtr above sea level. As it is not commercialized, it is the best place for some quite time. The trek starts from Bhagamandala; 50kms from Madikeri. You can spend a day in this spiritual town where river Kaveri originates and take a dip at the triveni sangam (meeting point of 3 rivers). Get ready to spot some wild life, walk through pristine forest and green meadows.Best Season: October to FebruaryTrek Distance: 8 kmsDifficulty Level: EasyGuide: Recommended.Food: Carry packed lunchPermission: Trekking permission should be obtained from the forest check postCamping: Allowed
The trail to Nishani Motte is a lesser-known trail in Coorg. Starting out in rich shola forests and meadows the trail follows an impressive ridge walk to the summit. The peak offers a spectacular view of the layers of the Brahmagiri range. This is followed by a stay in the forest at the anti poaching camp. This varied combination, makes Nishani Motte an ideal weekend trek out of Bangalore.10. Narasimha Parvatha
