After you've climbed the popular Ramadevara Betta Hill, proceed to explore more adventurous hot spots. Ramanagara hills are a great escape from the chaotic concrete jungle that we live in. The wide open spaces and hilly landscapes make for a refreshing change compared to the pollution of cities. Yatirajagiri, Shivaramagiri, Somagiri, Revannasiddeshwara Betta, Krishnagiri, Sidilakallu Betta and Jalasiddeshawara Betta are the seven other major hills in Ramanagara.
The Ramangara hills is also one of the oldest climbing sites in India with climbers undertaking technical ascents in these hills since the 1960's. Some of the best climbs are on the Wanakkal Wall, the Rainbow Wall, and the Anna-Thamma.
You can either get in touch with official agencies guaranteeing full trekking and rock-climbing experiences, or get your own equipment and start your own ascent. But be sure that the hills you scale don't fall in the restricted area (the hills that are inside the Vulture Sanctuary and therefore restricted). Another thing to note is that you will need professional equipment to scale many of these hills.
Timings: There are no specific timings for climbing but it may be a safer option to do so during daylight, as many of the boulders are ancient and steep.
Cost: You can take an organised activity package and the cost will be covered in it. The expenditure is generally between Rs. 1,200 - Rs. 1,500 per person.
