Anthargange is situated in Karnataka Kolar district, amid the Shathashrunga range, about 70 kilometers from Bangalore. The mountains at an elevation of 1712 meters above sea level, with granite boulders, little cafes, and lush vegetation, are one of the best destinations for trekking, rock climbing, and cave exploring enthusiasts.
Anthargange alludes to the never-ending spring that runs through the rocks from the mountains’ hearts. In Kannada, the phrase basically translates to “Inner Stream” or “The Ganges from the Deep.” This stream’s origins remain unknown. It also houses the Kashi Vishweshwara Temple, which is popular among worshippers.

Ballalarayana Durga Fort
Ballalarayana Durga is a mountain castle in Chikmagalur located in the village of Bettabalige between both the towns of Kottigehara and Kalasa. The vantage point, located at a height of 1509 meters, provides some of the best panoramic panoramas and breathtaking views in the region, as well as a rich historical and cultural value. It is nestled in the Western Ghats and can only be reached by trekking through impenetrable trees. Regardless of the fact that the mountain fort is now in shambles, with only outer walls, a few structures, and a cellar, it is a popular picnic and camping location.
As previously said, Ballalarayana Durga Fort is a renowned trekking location. However, the trail is challenging to climb and is not suitable for inexperienced hikers. The most popular trek path begins in Mundaje and continues to Bandeje Arbi before ending in Ballalarayana Durga.
The great season to visit the castle is always between November and May. It is not recommended to visit during the rainy season since not only does the rocky surface become slippery, but the rains also give birth to a large number of leeches and other bugs. The walk grows more challenging, and the streams are harder to cross.
Trekking in Honnemaradu
The area is very well-known among bird watchers and is commonly referred to as Bird Watchers Heaven. Connemara gets its name from the Honne tree, which translates to “Golden Lake” and is located in the backwaters of the Sharavathi River. The tranquility of the location makes it an ideal escape for people of all ages, especially those who enjoy water activities and enjoy the most stunning sunset and dawn views.
A number of hills and hillocks in the area that was drowned in the waves years ago have formed the magnificent islands in the large lake that are suitable for camping. Kayaking at Honnemaradu is made more appealing by the beauty of Karnataka’s Western Ghats. It is among the most beautiful man-made lakes in Karnataka, with lush foliage and a plethora of flora and fauna.
