About Horagina Betta   :  Horagina Betta meaning The outside hillock (Aka Nandi One), 65 kms from Bangalore is one of the major hillocks on route to the Nandi Hill Mountain. Due to the presence of Nandi Hills which is a popular tourist destination. Horagina Betta has never been visited by trekkers. The peak hosts a very beautiful Lord Shani-Eshwara temple. A nice drive from Bangalore and good trek makes Channagiri an ideal destination for a day trip. Do carry lots of water and beware of the naughty monkeys at the temple. It is 4724ft. (1440 meters) above sea level. The terrain is very diverse, rocky at some places & evergreen forest on the slopes. The hills are very rich in birdlife making it a very popular location for birdwatchers and bird photographers. The evergreen forest patch on top of the hill being a favored wintering location for many migrant species of warblers, flycatchers and thrushes. The forest patch is also home for a relict population of the Nilgiri Woodpigeon. A breeding pair of Shaheen Falcon, the resident race of the Peregrine Falcon is also often seen here.
