Uttari Betta : One day trek in Karnataka

Overview

 

Uttari Betta is a 5 kilometer climb over a stunning lush green terrain that gives fairly distinct scenic views that are comparable to those of the Western Ghats. It is also one of Karnataka’s most popular day hikes and is considered to be one of the best in the state. The trip begins in a tiny hamlet before entering the fort wall and passing through seven stone doors to reach the halfway point of the climb, which is marked by a shrine dedicated to Lord Shankareswar at the summit of the hill. 

The view from the top of the temple is breathtakingly stunning, and it is enough to take your breath away for a minute. Once we have crossed the temple, the trip continues ahead, passing through a tiny jungle tunnel, where we will see a whole new and surprising environment, before arriving at the grassy summit of the hill, which is encircled by massive rocks. After spending some time at the summit with some light chit-chat and a picnic lunch, we begin the long descent down to the starting site of the hike in the afternoon.
