Go on a Ramanagara day trek, the area where the principle shooting of the famous Bollywood movie, Sholay took place. Since then, it has started attracting a large number of tourists. Full of several moderately-high hills and rugged valleys, the region is a paradise for trekkers and other adventure lovers. The hills are said to look like several Hindu deities, when viewed from certain angles, and this has imparted a high religious significance to the area.
A day trek to Ramanagara is also of interest to birdwatchers, for the hills are inhabited by scavengers like Egyptian vultures and Indian vultures. You may have to look carefully at the slopes to get glimpses of Indian vultures as they blend almost immaculately with their surroundings, owing to their brown colour. Hunting is completely banned because the area has been designated as Ramadevarabetta Vulture Sanctuary by the Karnataka Government to conserve the birds that are on the verge of extinction. Apart from these birds, you may also see leopards and bears here.
If you are undertaking a Ramanagara day trekking tour, then you are extremely lucky as there are plenty of paths for you to tread along. These trails vary in difficulty and all bring different kinds of challenges. One thing that is common to all of them is the high amount of thrill that they give you. Many of the cliffs have been named after the characters of the film, Sholay. Atop certain hills, there are temples of various Hindu deities, which give the area a spiritual aspect. These smooth granite hills are contrasted by the lush greenery that surrounds them.
You will be able to undertake such excursions only as long as you are 100 per cent physically fit. The gradient of the slopes here is almost 50 degrees at certain points, and you should be strong enough to hold on to crevices or exposed rocks, and pull yourself up. Your breathing should be normal and lungs healthy, for such hikes will definitely tire you. The strong sun and the extensive climbing will dehydrate you, and hence you must carry enough drinking water to last the entire trip. To negotiate the slippery nature of granite easily, pick good quality shoes, which are flexible and provide a good grip.

After the briefing is complete, spare time for some exercise. It is important to get warmed up before commencing the day trek to Ramanagara as exercising increases your body temperature. This in turn loosens your muscles and allows easy and efficient movements.
