Trekking, Rappelling and Cave Exploration at Antaragange - [1st March 2015] - Registration is ON
 

Sixty kilometers from Bengaluru, Anthargange in Kolar is a massive field of volcanic boulders and rocks. These boulders, all heaped one on another create a whole network of cave-like formations and tunnels that make this a great place for cave exploration, light trekking, and camping. 

A long staircase leads to a temple with a pond. There is a stone bull here with water flowing out of its mouth. No one knows the actual source of the water, which is how Antargange got its name (Antargange literally means ‘Ganges of the Deep’). An hour of climbing uphill leads to the approach route into the caves. The entire route twists through a dark maze of rocks, boulders, between cracks, and enters holes that sometimes will allow just one person to crawl through, all of which make for an exhilarating experience.. (Don't forget to carry your torches/headlamps). Once out of the exit, a short trek leads to a viewpoint where one can rest, and if on a night trek, wait to catch the sun rising to light up the entire landscape. 

Antargange is not at all technical and is relatively safe*, making it the perfect introduction for anyone interested in getting a taste of Caving or any kind of adventure based activity. Being just an hour and a half long drive from Bengaluru, Antargange is an opportunity to do something fun and adventurous over the weekend. 

*Caution: 
-Please don't register if you suffer from a weak heart, weak joints or claustrophobia. This event requires basic fitness. You will have to crawl, climb and jump through an unlit and unfamiliar environment.
