The Kolar district of Karnataka promises a jaw-dropping sight of the Shathashrunga range and Anthargange is another rocky hill range that basks at a height of 1712 meters from sea level.
The place is mostly an illusionistic stretch of stacked rocky boulders and the natural cave exploration is a one of kind experience among these piled up volcanic rocks.
The Anthargange Temple is another popular site that is well-celebrated among the devotees and religious trekkers. Literally, Anthargange stands for 'The Ganges from the deep' or 'Inner Stream' in Kannada, that is also because of the bestrew of seven villages in the vicinity which are favored with a natural supply of fresh groundwater.
There are no lodging options at Anthargange so one can either pitch a tent while night trekking or can stay at Bangalore and embark on a day trekking tour at Anthargange.
