The challenging trail ends at the top, where you will have your packed lunch. From the top, also, you will get some unbeatable views of the nearby hills like Skandigiri and the Nandi Hills. The tour starts from a pickup in Bangalore and ends with a drop-off to the same fixed locations.*Note- Kindly refrain from taking on this trek if you are unfit as the terrain is challenging and demands decent stamina.Reporting Point: BangaloreEnd Point: BangaloreDuration: 12 hrsPickup location for Channagiri Trek06:30 AM - Pickup from BMC, Indiranagar06:45 AM - Pickup from  New Shanti Sagar Hotel, Domlur07:00 AM - Pick up from Garuda Mall, Magrath Road Starting Time: 6:30 AMEnd Time: 6:30 PMTrek distance of Channagiri Trek: 3 km Difficulty level of Channagiri Trek: Easy to Moderate

The trek to Horagina Betta takes you to this small hillock that falls on the way to Nandi Hills mountain. An offbeat and lesser-known location, it is still pristine and even has a beautiful temple of Lord Shani-Eshwara. Located about 65 km from Bangalore, which is the starting point of the tour, the meaning of the name of this hillock is 'The Nandi one'. Standing at a height of 1,440 meters above sea level, you will find the terrain to be a mix of rocky and green-clad, with occasional sightings of some rare birds. The entire trek is an experience of adventure and pristine nature around, but the view from the top is what takes the cake. You will get a breathtaking view of the nearby regions, and hills, including the Nandi Hills. After spending some time here, we will return back down and leave for Bangalore. This brings the experience to an end. Reporting Point: BangaloreEnd Point: BangaloreDuration: 12 hrsPickup:06:30 AM - Pick up from Indiranagar 06:45 AM - Pickup from New Shanti Sagar Hotel, Domlur07:00 AM - Pickup From Lifestyle, Magrath Road (Near Garuda Mall)Starting Time: 6:30 AMEnd time: 5:30 PMTrek distance: 7 kmDifficulty level: Moderate

Went there based on the reviews here. Pros: -Easy access to the place from main road towards Nandi hills (few had mentioned about muddy road to the parking..but thats just 100meters and not 2km like how someone told here) -Common areas are maintained well with ample lighting and seating -Badminton,Cricket,Football options and many indoor games -Majority of the staff was friendly -Tent facility was a good experience, got comfortable options -Music,campfire etc was taken care Cons: -Restrooms were pathetic, had to close the nose to enter (cant imagine how they can maintain it like that with all other facilities maintained well) -There was no water on 2nd day morning and none bothered to fix even after complaining multiple times. We were directed to a tap to brush and wash face. -Food was average. For breakfast though we had informed in advance that we can make it only by 8:30, (many people joined only by then) most of the items were already over, and we had to fill with the items left. I couldn't believe that even Jam for bread was also over. -You cannot get a peaceful sleep in the tent in the cold if you have singing/screaming/chatting neighbors even at 2 am With bit more care they can make this place awesome!! I don't know if it was just us who had to face these as I saw majority rating 5 for this place. Anyway this was what we faced.

Hi, We recently completed our experience through this package and overall it was nice 1st camping experience away from city’s hustle and bustle. But I observed that these reviews are mix of multiple places since this particular place doesn’t have swimming pool or many amenities or setup which other people calling out in their reviews. It’s mostly an evening & night stay option to experience camping , bonfire, a few indoor and outdoor games in quite good maintained premises. Staff has been supportive and food was nice as well, recommended to try once but confirm about amenities or expectations by calling before placing the booking.
