Bangalore has so many beautiful places to explore all around and Antaragange is just one of them. Although the place does not offer any scenic splendour, it has a charm on its own through climbing rock boulders and various cave exploration sites. The spot is located 70 kms away from Bangalore and this trek route can be covered either at night or a day. There is a temple which is named Antaragange temple where history says natural spring water constantly flows out of the mouth of Nandi. As the place is surrounded by rocky boulders, there are several rock formations which are arranged in such a manner as to appear as numerous caves waiting to be explored. The trek trail leads to Durga Hill from where one can envisage good view from atop. Enroute the trail, you will overcome steep stairways to the temple and then move further towards rocky boulders. You will get various thrilling moments enroute visiting the Launchpad rock and Devils Horn which are all natural formations. Up at the summit base; enjoy cave explorations and good view from above.
Pick up at 0600 AM from Bangalore as you are driven towards the base point from where the trek begins towards Durga Hill & Antaragange Temple. The initial route will cover straight staircases up to the temple. As you reach the temple, from the left hand side of the temple, trails appear which steadily get steeper. The hill will appear to be rocky from down below as you tread ahead. Pass by the famous Launchpad rock and Devils Horn as you reach the summit base Durga Hill. Spend the day exploring caves on the hill top. Enjoy lunch at the top and later return back to base camp and drive back to Bangalore.
