About the Activity

Kunti Betta sunrise trek stands out as the most famous and thrilling trekking encounters one can experience near Bangalore. A sunrise trek is a mesmerizing and unforgettable experience, and thrilling enough to tickle your adventurous bone. Watching a sunrise from such a beautiful spot will fill you with a lot of positive energy, that you can take back with you when the weekend gets over.

Two rocky hills standing tall in the town of Pandavapura, surrounded by some amazing picture-perfect scenery, overlooking the beautiful Pandavapura Lake is Kunti Betta. Hindu Mythology gives an insight into the short stay of Pandavas in this region and their mother Kunti, who developed a fondness towards the hillocks. Hence, the town and the hill were named after them. From Bangalore and head for Kunti Betta base. This nearly 4 km (up and down) Sunrise trek will sit in your memory for eternity.

    Trip was nice experience specially in summer season. We started by 10.45 pm and reached Kunti Betta base by 2.30 am (as we took two long break which was only minus point from trip). We reached peak by 4 am it was nice trek to climb. Then some guys from us joined for bone-fire and fun activities session and some took rest. I slept as I was feeling amazing at peak with cold breezes in full moon. Till morning 6 am by the time of sunrise we were there. As it was too cloudy so couldn't see sunrise but morning view was nice and fresh and around 6.15 we started to get down and headed for water sports. By 8 am we started water sports activities, Kayaking, Swimming..etc... After few round water scooter faced some technical issues so whole group couldn't enjoy but we continue to Kayaking and Swimming. After that we went to restaurant, we got fresh and had nice south-Indian breakfast and headed back for Bangalore.

    A brilliantly organized trip to Kunti Betta, from being collected at the Marathahalli to our final step on the mountain, it could not have been better in any way. This was an excellent experience and one that I would recommend. The guides and the organizer treated us all with respect and although they must have done the trip 100’s of times they were always kind, enthusiastic and made it very special for us. 'A must do trek' that I wish had lasted longer, it was truly awesome. In short we can say it was well organized nice Trip, Breakfast and refreshment was served on the way. Water sports and activities was also awesome we enjoyed the trip. All activities was handled and well professional and in efficient way. Thanks to Karthik and Swamy the guide and the trip organizer.

    It was wonderful experience indeed. It all started with the bus journey to kuntibetta. We were 7 ISMites along with 25 other enthusiast from Thapper started this journey. Along the way we played dumb sheraz , sung may bollywood songs & we reached to the bottom of kuntibetta. Kuntibetta hill is more of a stone hill. It reminds me of 'Sholey' movie.The tracking kuntibetta was difficult because of slopes & dark. Don't forget to carry torch or mobile (having tourch) if you are planning to go. after a track of 1 hour or so , we reached to the peak. We had a campfire there, although we had sleeping bags , we didn't used it. The sunrise at kuntibetta was the most amazing thing. Overall it was a different experience.

    It was an awesome experience all together. The bus journey was nice although we expected an A/C bus due to hot weather. We started for the Trekking on 2:00am and reached on the top at around 4:00am. We were guided well to follow the routes to the top. All the journey guides are nice and we played some wonderful activities like dumb sheraz and songs after reaching on the top. We haven't encountered perfect sunrise in the morning but the view was really mind blowing. Overall it was a very nice experience if you haven't went for trekking before.
