I decided to stick to my New Year’s resolution this time. So, I planned a small trek at Kailasagiri near Kaiwara with my friends.
The Pandavas from Mahabharata are believed to have lived here during their exile. The hill is also called as the Bhima Bakasura betta where Bhima is believed to have slain Bakasura.
Kailasagiri is 7 kms from Kaiwara which itself is around 80 kms from Bangalore in Chikballapur district. This time we took our bikes instead of car. We were 5 in number and had 3 bikes. We loved our ride through wide, scenic and empty road. After 2 hours we reached foothills of Kailasagiri.
As soon as you park you vehicle and turn you can see a board which guides you to the trek path.
