Bananthimari Betta is locally known as KaradiBetta in and around the region, since bears are spotted around. Located 3 kms from the Kanakapura region, this twin hillock is surrounded by plush green fields and patches of flowers and rock surfaces. 

This moderately easy day trek is perfect for a weekend break. 

The trek starts from a temple at the base, and the first 100 mts is through a mud path. As we go ahead, the next 1 km goes through steep rocks, which serve as steps through some lovely green bushes and canopies above. As we go higher, we get our first view of the whole town. 

The next 1.5 kms is completely trekking over the boulders and itís an adventure in itself! The varied colors of the boulders, some places steep and some fully flat make it all the more exciting. The views keep getting majestic as we go further. 

Gentle winds, and a breath - taking view is what greets us on the top. Blues skies filled with fluffy white clouds, that cast their shadows on the green grasslands and bushes, giving the vibrant colors of green! We spend a good half n hour on the peak, soaking in all the beauty and head back to the base, through the same route.
