The Insider Guide To Travel Near Bangalore
It's winter, and a great time to head outdoors - the greenery is awesome, things are festive all round, and you don't have to worry about getting wet!
Try your hand (and feet!) at trekking!
The incredible Western Ghats will give you something for every level of hiker: Kodachadri is an easy trek with tremendous views. Willing to go a little further? Kopatty will show you a different side of Coorg. And hey, why not make your first trek a night one? No better place to start than Kunti Betta. If you're considering your first trek (you should!), check out the Insider Guide to getting started with this thrilling activity. It's addictive - you've been warned!
For trekkers with a little more experience
Up your game! Go on a night trek to Antargange (with caves!), explore something new with the Baamikonda-Kilchika trek or Nishani Motte treks. Good ol' Kudremukh still is considered a trekker's delight. And if you're looking to get away a little further, try the MM Hills getaway, or go all the way to Kerala for the Munnar to Kodaikanal trek! More in our Trekking Guide!
Other outdoors experiences worth your while
There's lots of great camping, including several to bring in the New Year. If you don't want to go too far, get a heritage tour of the famous Cubbon Park. Fly a plane right here in the city, go rafting in Coorg, spot some tigers on safari in Pench! If you're not feeling particularly adventurous, unwind and take a stroll through history at Hampi.
