Uttari Betta is a 5 km trek across a spectacular lush green landscape that offers unique scenic views similar to western ghats, it is also one of Karnataka’s greatest day hikes. The trek starts from a small village, enters the fort wall, and passes through seven doors of stone to reach the halfway point of the hike which has a temple of Shankareswar at the top. The view from the temple top is beautiful enough to seize your mind for a moment. Once we cross the temple, the trek continues ahead crossing a small jungle cave, experiencing a whole new unexpected world, and, ending at the grassland top of the hill which is surrounded by huge boulders. After spending some time at the top with little chit-chat and packing lunch, we begin to descend back towards the base point of the trek.

As this is a budget trip, we expect our travelers to coordinate with the Trip Guide from Tripbae, and the Trip Guide’s decisions will be final.

Join our exciting community of photographers, travelers & influencers to one of the very few night treks in Karnataka remaining that one can do legally the Uttari Betta Sunrise Trek.
