People can enjoy the moderate as well as difficult trekking in Ramanagara, which offers a diversity of rugged terrain and tricky routes. These treks are perfect for the weekend as climbing up doesn’t take up much of your time, unless you like to take it slow.

Located on the banks of River Arkavathi, the area of Ramanagara is covered with rocks and granite hills and is home to several species of endangered birds. Apart from trekking, people also come to this small town to enjoy rock climbing. While the compact hills make for excellent trek, the seemingly vertical rock faces quench the thirst of people for enjoying technical climbs. The amazing views of the sparsely vegetated surroundings that participants encounter while enjoying trekking or even rock climbing makes them feel relaxed and even rejuvenated.
