The trek to the Anthargange peak is one of the most sought after treks around Bangalore. The peak rises high above the township of Kolar and is a part of the Shathashrunga range. Located at around 65 km from Bangalore, this peak is at an altitude of 1,712 m above sea level. Anthargange hill is completely surrounded by boulders and it is the combination of trekking and cave exploration that drives the excitement factor high.

Anthargange peak is perfect for night trekking and cave exploration in torch light. With a walk of around 3 kms, this is a moderate trek, as the climb takes you through broken rocks and tricky paths in the boulders to finally reach the cave site awaiting exploration. The experience of making your way through the caves, having to crawl at times because of the volcanic rock formations, is one worth having for any trek lover.

This night trek to the caves of Anthargange is sure to take you back to the primeval times. And you finally get to be in the skin of a "Cave Man". The effort pays off as the feeling of contentment starts settling in at the finishing point of the trek. Unwind by the bonfire and feel the mysterious night envelope you. If luck favours, you might catch a glimpse of the wild animals that roam the land. As the darkness fades, make your way back to the base through the cave.

This adventure activity at Anthargange is one of the nearest escapes into the caves for any Bangalorean.
