Hiking after sunset can be an interesting and outrageous experience, and you can do it with a Ramanagara night trek. The excitement begins right from the start of the expedition as the only source of light with you would be from your torches, and nothing else. There will be no sounds, except for those of insects, animals and you stepping on the ground and treading along. Your adrenaline level will constantly be high, considering the fact that there may be significant ditches along the way, and you will not be able to see them clearly. This activity is ideal to give you a break from your hectic lives and at the same time to keep you active.
To enjoy a night trek to Ramanagara, your fitness levels should be good. You may start exercising a few days before you embark on this venture to improve the condition of the bone joints in your knees and elbows. The terrain will be rocky and full of loose soil, and should you step on such a ground, your knee joints should be strong enough to negotiate them. You may also have to pull yourself up to climb on high rocks, and your biceps should have enough strength to bear your weight. Though the sun will not be beating down to dehydrate you, the gruelling ascent will still make you tired, so you should have sufficient water to quench your thirst.
The items that you carry along for this Ramanagara night trekking tour should be inclusive of snacks as you will need nourishment during and after the walk. Also pack shoes with flexible and high-traction outsoles to help you conquer the rugged topography of the region. If your camera comes with night vision, then bring it along too because you would not want to miss capturing the views that you witness during your excursion to the hill.
Ramanagara attracts quite a large number of tourists owing to many reasons. The primary reason for it is that the Bollywood film Sholay was shot here, and it depicted the area as the Ramgarh village. Pilgrims come here because they believe that the hills resemble some of the Hindu deities, when seen from certain angles. Another reason for this religious importance of the area is that there are many temples at the peaks of some hillocks. Thrill seekers are drawn to the place as it boasts a number of hiking trails with varying difficulty levels. Birdwatchers throng this destination to see the endangered Egyptian and Indian vultures that nest here.
