Kolar at night from Anthargange

Anthargange trek is one of the most famous short treks from Bangalore for the cave exploration. Situated at a distance of around 80 Kms from Bangalore in the Kolar district, it has also become one of the best night treks around Bangalore. Following are the details of this trek.

Anthargange Trek from Bangalore

How to reach anthargange from bangalore:.

While returning from the night trek, I saw a KSRTC bus heading towards the trek route. But I am not sure if the bus was coming from Bangalore or from Kolar. Anyway, most of the people like to reach this place on their private vehicles, be it a bike or a car. Since the highway is superfine, it should not take more than 2 hours in total to reach the trek starting point.

Anthargange trek starting points

There are two starting points for this trek.

  • Crazy hills resort  and,

Dakshina Kashi Kshetra temple

Crazy hills resort.

There is a motorable road to both of the starting points. However, last 4-5 Km stretch to the crazy hills resort is a hilly road. Moreover, from this point, you would not need to ascend much as this point is already at par with the top. There is also a village near the resort. In the night, it would be sleepy but in the morning, there are shops from where you can buy snacks and water etc.

This temple can also be a trek starting point. You shall have to park the vehicle near the temple and follow the trail until the top. Below is an image of the trail of this trek just for your understanding:

Anthargange trekking trail

With reference to the above image, you can see temple marked on the right end and the resort that I mentioned above on the left end. In the middle, you can see the water cave. Those are the caves for which this trek is famous for. So you can start trekking from either side. If you ask my opinion, I would suggest you start from the resort side.

Anthargange Caves:

Though the water caves marked on the image above looks close to the trail, you need someone, especially in the night trek, to help you find the caves because they are little away from the main trail. Also, you need an experienced person who has already seen the caves before to walk you through the labyrinth of the networks of the caves. At some points, the caves are dangerous as well. In the day, you can try exploring on your own.

Antharagange caves will often remind you of Belum caves in Andhra Pradesh. If you are a fan of caves, then you should surely plan a trip to the Belum Caves .

Cave Exploration Tips:

Try to start the trek from the Crazy hills resort side. After trekking for almost 10 minutes, you should be able to see some caves. In case, you do not see any, ask the night trek guys or someone else from the day trek.

Anthargange Vegetation:

Anthargange is full of thorny vegetation. In the day, it becomes really hot due to rocks. This trek is ideal for a night trek. You can also see the view of the Kolar town at night from the trek. Sunrise is also very beautiful in the morning with ample space for photography without any object hindering the way.

Anthargange Caves Trek: A Complete Guide

The vast and diverse landscape of India offers a plethora of trekking opportunities, and the Anthargange trek in the Kolar district of Karnataka is undoubtedly one of the hidden gems waiting to be discovered.

Nestled amidst the enchanting hills and rocky terrain, the Anthargange trek offers a perfect blend of spirituality, adventure, and natural beauty. 

This blog aims to take you on a virtual journey to Anthargange, exploring its mysterious caves, challenging trails, and the unique experience it offers to trekkers and adventure enthusiasts.

About Anthargange Trek

Anthargange is a hill range in the Shathashrunga range of Karnataka, about 70 kilometers from Bangalore. It is a popular trekking destination for its scenic beauty, challenging trails, and rich history. The name "Anthargange" means "innerspring" in Kannada, and the hill is home to a number of natural springs, as well as caves and temples.

The Anthargange trek is a moderate to difficult trek, with a total distance of about 5 kilometers. The trail begins at the Anthargange temple and ascends through a series of rocky boulders and dense forests.

The first part of the trek is relatively easy, but the difficulty level increases as you approach the summit.

Trekking Route

As you ascend, you will encounter fascinating volcanic rock formations, small caves, and crevices. The trek involves some climbing, crawling through narrow gaps, and exploring the caves, which are the highlights of the Anthargange trek.

The trek is of moderate difficulty and takes around 2 to 3 hours to reach the top, depending on your pace and exploration time. The views from the top are breathtaking, especially during sunrise and sunset.

What is the best time for Anthargange Trek?

The best time to undertake the Anthargange trek in Kolar district, Karnataka, India, is during the cooler months, which are typically from October to March. During this period, the weather is more pleasant, with milder temperatures and lower humidity, making it ideal for trekking and outdoor activities.

Winter (October to February):

This is the peak season for trekking Anthargange due to the pleasant weather. Temperatures are relatively cool, ranging from 15°C to 25°C during the day, and it can get colder during the night. The clear skies and mild weather provide excellent trekking conditions, making it a popular time for both experienced trekkers and beginners.

Spring (March):

Early March can still offer good trekking weather, similar to the winter months. Towards the end of March, the temperatures may start to rise, and it can get slightly warmer during the daytime. Overall, it is still a suitable time for trekking, but the weather may become warmer as the month progresses.

Summer (April to June):

Summer months can be quite hot and uncomfortable for trekking in Anthargange. Daytime temperatures can soar well above 30°C, and the rocks can become scorching hot. Trekking during the summer is not recommended due to the harsh conditions. It is better to plan a trek early in the morning.

Monsoon (July to September):

The monsoon season brings heavy rainfall to the region, making the terrain slippery and hazardous for trekking. The rocks can become slippery, Trekking during the monsoon is not advisable for safety reasons.

My Trek Experience

I planned this trek along with one of my friends in Bangalore, So I took the trek permit in advance from the Karnataka eco-tourism website as it is mandatory for this trek.

We started from Bangalore early in the morning around 4:30 so that we can reach the base of the Anthargange trek before 6 AM. The road condition is very good from Bangalore to Kolar so we reached on time without any hassle.

After reaching the base point of the Anthargange trek we parked our vehicle at the dedicated parking area by paying 50 INR. Afterward, we started our trek journey, Initially, we need to climb a few stairs and cover a 500-meter distance to reach the actual trek start point where we have shown our trek permit to the forest guard, and from there, we have been assigned a trek guide.

The trek route is easy and we didn't face any difficulty but as we are doing this trek in the month of July due to monsoon season we could see lots of greenery in our trail. After covering some distance we started to see big rocks in our trail which made our trek journey exciting.

After covering more distance reached in front of the caves, that was the best part of this trek. We waited for some time for our trek guide as we were quite ahead of our fellow trekkers. Once the trek guide came we entered the caves and it is one of the most thrilling and adventurous parts I felt in the entire trek journey.

There was no light so we need to use our phone flashlight to see the way ahead, ad the passage is soo narrow that only one person can move at a time. With the help of the trek guide, we were able to come out of that cave and we all felt relieved and happy.

For the final viewpoint, we went ahead from the caves to reach a point where we need to climb the rock to reach the top viewpoint and after we reached there it was truly a breathtaking view we experienced. We captured the beauty of the place by taking some photos and videos.

I tried capturing the views with my drone but it was too windy at the top that I couldn't able to fly for more than a few minutes. We relaxed and had our snacks and started our return journey afterwards.

Anthargange trek in Kolar was truly one of a kind trek with mysterious caves which I have experienced near Bangalore. It is a mesmerizing blend of adventure and natural beauty. Its mystical caves, challenging trails, and breathtaking landscapes offer an unforgettable experience for trekkers and adventure enthusiasts. 

Tips for Trekkers

Before setting off on the Anthargange trek, here are some essential tips to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience:

Proper Footwear: Wear comfortable trekking shoes with a good grip to navigate the rocky terrain safely.

Carry Sufficient Water: As the trek can be physically demanding, ensure you carry an ample supply of water to stay hydrated throughout the journey.

Pack Light: Keep your backpack light with only essential items like snacks, a first aid kit, and a flashlight for night treks.

Follow the Guide: If you're new to the area, it's advisable to hire a local guide who knows the terrain well. They can help you navigate through tricky spots and provide valuable insights into the history and significance of the place.

Respect Nature: While trekking, ensure you leave no trace behind and respect the natural surroundings. Avoid littering and damaging the rock formations.

Night Trek Precautions: If you opt for a night trek, make sure to carry extra layers of clothing as it can get chilly at higher altitudes during the night.

I have covered a couple more treks near Bangalore which you can explore Best Treks near Bangalore.

Trekking at Antaragange – A Walk Through Volcanic Paths

November 24, 2011 by madur

Trekking at Antaragange, near Kolar

Karnataka has a variety of trekking destinations to suit the enthusiast. Among the top five treks in Karnataka is the Antaragange trek. The volcanic rocks and caves along this trek offer exploration opportunities for the enthusiast.

Getting To Antaragange

Antaragange is at a distance of 65 km from Bangalore. Antaragange is at a distance of 2 km from Kolar, which is the base for the trek. State transport and private buses ply at regular intervals to Kolar.

What To See At Antaragange

Antaragange forms part of the Shathashrunga mountain range and means ‘Ganges from the depths’. This place is called the Kashi of the South and has an ancient Kashi Vishwanatha temple on a hillock. There is a perennial flow of water from the mouth of a stone bull into a pond in the temple premises.

Trekking In Antaragange

There is a flight of 500 + broken stone steps to reach the temple. An alternate 7-km route is through volcanic rocks, thick undergrowth, and cave formations covering the hillock. It is difficult to avoid the thorny bushes on the hill and the trekker is sure to come back with numerous scratches on his limbs.

The best time for trekking in Antaragange is August to February. It is advisable to start trekking early morning and be back by early afternoon. The climate is hot, and hence, sunscreen and caps are a must for the trek. The trek is a moderately difficult one and ideal for a day excursion. Food is available at Kolar town, but the trekker is advised to carry plenty of water and ready-to-eat food packets.

Night treks on this route can also be arranged with the help of local guides. One is likely to encounter snakes and sloth bears along the route. The rocks grow cold at night; hence, it is advisable to carry a fleece jacket and a bright torch on the trek. The night trek takes about 6 hours allowing for short rest stops on the way. Trekkers often camp out in tents on the peak. On a clear day, one can see the lights of Kolar town from the peak.

  • Antaragange is besieged by monkeys, which are a total menace. Incidents where monkeys in search of food have attacked trekkers and carried away bags are common. The trekker is advised to carry a stout stick and hide any food packets from view.
  • The huge boulders near this hillock have formed narrow cave structures. It is not advisable to attempt climbing these structures without a local guide or prior knowledge of basic bouldering techniques.
  • There are plenty of honey combs in the cave structures and tourists should avoid disturbing the bees.

Places Around Antaragange

Kolar is a mid-sized town with moderately priced restaurants. The town houses the Kolaramma and Someshwara temples. The Someshwara temple is built in the Vijayanagara style of architecture and is estimated to be at least 500 years old. The 800-year-old Kolaramma temple houses two shrines, and it is built in the Dravidian style of architecture.

Bangalore has so many beautiful places to explore all around and Antaragange is just one of them. Although the place does not offer any scenic splendour, it has a charm on its own through climbing rock boulders and various cave exploration sites. The spot is located 70 kms away from Bangalore and this trek route can be covered either at night or a day. There is a temple which is named Antaragange temple where history says natural spring water constantly flows out of the mouth of Nandi. As the place is surrounded by rocky boulders, there are several rock formations which are arranged in such a manner as to appear as numerous caves waiting to be explored. The trek trail leads to Durga Hill from where one can envisage good view from atop. Enroute the trail, you will overcome steep stairways to the temple and then move further towards rocky boulders. You will get various thrilling moments enroute visiting the Launchpad rock and Devils Horn which are all natural formations. Up at the summit base; enjoy cave explorations and good view from above. ITINERARY Pick up at 0600 AM from Bangalore as you are driven towards the base point from where the trek begins towards Durga Hill & Antaragange Temple. The initial route will cover straight staircases up to the temple. As you reach the temple, from the left hand side of the temple, trails appear which steadily get steeper. The hill will appear to be rocky from down below as you tread ahead. Pass by the famous Launchpad rock and Devils Horn as you reach the summit base Durga Hill. Spend the day exploring caves on the hill top. Enjoy lunch at the top and later return back to base camp and drive back to Bangalore.

Sixty kilometers from Bengaluru, Antargange in Kollar is a hill range with huge volcanic rocks and boulders scattered all over.  Thorny shrubs cover the hill, while there is dense plantation forest at the base.  Flight of steps, halfway the hill leads to an ancient temple.  The spring at this temple is claimed to wash off your sins.  The forty-five minutes hill climbing will keep you panting for breath and opens up for an extensive and beautiful green plateau on the top. 

Kolar town, the headquarters of this district was formerly known as Kuvalala. Kollar was the first capital of the Gangas, till about the 4th century A.D. In 1004 A.D., the Cholas annexed Kolar with their empire. Later, Kolar came under the Vijayanagar empire, before being taken over by the British in 1768.  In 1792, Kolar was given to Tippu Sultan, by the British. Haidar Ali of Mysore was born around 1722 in the tiny village of Budikote, near Kolar. Haidar Ali died in 1782 during the Mysore Wars. His body was embalmed and lay in state for four months before being moved to a mausoleum built by his son, Tipu Sultan, in the middle of a garden on the island of Srirangapatam.

Anthargange is an ideal location for light trek, rock climbing and camping.  Big and small boulders have heaped to form cave like formations offering exhilarating network of cave exploration activity.

Night trek & Cave Exploring @ Antargange

Bangalore is surrounded by so many beautiful places around it. And Antargange is one of them. It is calm, pleasant, surprising and most importantly very safe place for night trekking. It takes around 1 Hr to reach the peak, but there are so many caves & peaks to explore. It's difficulty level is moderate. Trek is easy but cave exploring is tricky.

This is one of the good place for starters for hiking, cave exploration and camping. It takes average of 1.5 hours to reach the camping point from the base. Up to middle (till temple), you have good stairs. There after its bit difficult to reach camping point. If you are going for night trek be aware of snakes, foxes and wolfs. At the camping site you can witness foxes watching you from a distance rock. And if you want to explore caves, make sure that you wear jeans, full arm shirt and equipped with torch. As some one said before, Antaragange won't offer you scenic environment. But it gives you good experience. The temple at the middle is nice. They say water flows through out the year from the mouth of Nandi. Don't forget ti taste that sweet & pure water. Apart from this beware of monkeys. They can easily sense your fright and will attack if you are holding any eatables or attractive items like sun glasses, camera etc. Tips for Bikers and Night Trekkers: Its perfectly safe to park your Bike near the base (Darga) during night. Just give Rs.50/- to the house owner where you park, they will take care of your helmets too. Don't forget to pack the dinner from Kolar, you won't get any thing in Antaragange. Don't carry non-veg food, its banned at the premises of temple and it may also attract wolfs, foxes during the night camp. The only water source is at temple. Fill as much as water you can before proceeding to camp site.

We visited as part of our trip to molar. The place is ok. Lot of monkeys. Kind of scary sometimes. It could turnout a good place for trekking.

small tank with water originating from mouth of Nandi... but the climb uphill is tiring. not much scenic ....can be avoided. lots of monkeys...scary to some extent....no food facility at all.

Night Trek and Cave Exploration at Antaragange, Bangalore

Photo of Sarita Nayak

Bangalore, the IT hub of the country, and is the city for IT professionals. The best way to escape the pressure of work and to get refreshed is to have a short weekend break. With lots of adventurous club in Bangalore, you just need to have a mindset.

While having lunch with my colleagues, I shared the idea and the trip got planned. This was a night trek and cave exploration at Antaragange. Sixty kilometers from Bengaluru, Antaragange in Kollar is a massive field of volcanic boulders and rocks. These boulders, all heaped one on another creates a whole network of cave-like formations and tunnels that makes this a great place for cave exploration, light trekking, and camping.

We planned this trip with Bangalore Mountaineering Club (BMC). We bought the tickets, got things confirmed and got geared up for the short trip. After having dinner, we waited near Tin Factory, where we were supposed to get picked up by them.

We boarded the bus, a non ac one (you don’t need an ac bus since the trip starts at around 10 pm and anyway it’s Bangalore). There were other groups too and in total there were close to 36 people in two buses including the coordinators.

While going uphill, the roads were really narrow and the turns were very sharp. Our hearts almost stopped for a second whenever the bus took a hair pin turn. It was exciting at the same time. The white huge boulders looked beautiful in the moonlit night. We reached the base around 12:30 at night.

Other than BMC, there was another group from Thrillophillia. So, they started the trek first, and we waited at the base for some time so that there could be a gap between the two groups. Every one of us collected our sleeping bags from the BMC coordinators. Then there was a quick round of instructions and introductions, where we figured out that it was almost the IT crowd. People started talking to each other and it felt like one big group.

We started the trek in the moonlit night. Though the trek was really easy, but we felt good and it was only getting interesting and exciting. After trekking for a kilometer or so through thick bushes, we reached at the cave. I must say, basic fitness is really required. The entry point at the cave was a tough one. To get into the cave, we had to slide down almost 6 feet and though it sounds simple, it actually wasn’t. We had to keep our sleeping bags outside. One by one people started to enter the cave. The coordinators were extremely helpful and the way they directed was perfect. It was pitch dark inside and we continued to move further. I don’t exactly remember but there were almost four to five places inside the cave which were really challenging. At one place the radius of the passage was 30 cm approx. and was an uneven one. And one had to slide down through it and then crawl to move ahead. At another place, one had to keep one leg on one rock stretch the other leg to reach another rock and balance and then carefully crawl through a small passage. I and my friends were just behind the instructor and while he was busy guiding others we took the lead and came out of the cave at a wrong place. All we could see were white huge boulders and rocks everywhere, shining brightly in the moon light. It looked beautiful. Finally, we all managed to complete the caving and took our sleeping bags and started heading towards the place where we were supposed to take rest till morning. It was almost 3 o’ clock at night. As we started trekking uphill, there was an interesting point where there was just a foot hold space. So we were supposed to rest flat on the boulder and move sideways to cross that place. There was a coordinator for safety purpose but that was little scary. We kept on moving forward and finally reached a flattened surface on the top of a hillock. We sat there and the scenic beauty was something that cannot be expressed in words. It’s something that only a person can feel. We kept on talking and clicked pics till 6 in the morning.

At sunrise, though we couldn’t see a clear sunrise but the scenery was absolutely stunning. We sat there for about an hour. The coordinators then asked every one of us to assemble and to pack our stuff. We left around 7 in the morning and walked back towards the bus. The sun was shining brightly and we could see the rays falling on those white boulders making it look artistic. We halted at a place for breakfast and got freshened up too. Then we headed back towards the city and were dropped off at the same location from where they picked us.

Bangalore Mountaineering club has been conducting these kind of activities since many years and they are really fun people. This was my first trip with them and I loved it a lot. I have heard a lot about Thirllophilia but haven’t done any trip with them but I believe they would be equally good too.

Few points that I would like to mention is:

These kind of trips are really safe. The coordinators make sure of this thing first. Having said that, people need to take care of themselves and shouldn’t get isolated from the group.

You can do the trip alone also. If you are someone who loves adventures and do not have friends to accompany, never mind. When I did the trip, there were few single people in the group and then they became friends with others during the trek.

Rest all the details are provided by the clubs in their website. Please follow it and you will have an awesome fun time.

History of Moscow Oblast

The territory of the Moscow region was inhabited more than 20 thousand years ago. In the first millennium AD, this land was inhabited mostly by the Finno-Ugric peoples (Meryane and Meshchera). In the 9th-10th centuries, the Slavs began active development of the region. The population was engaged in hunting, fisheries, agriculture, and cattle breeding.

In the middle of the 12th century, the territory of the present Moscow region became part of the Vladimir-Suzdal principality, the first towns were founded (Volokolamsk in 1135, Moscow in 1147, Zvenigorod in 1152, Dmitrov in 1154). In the first half of the 13th century, the Vladimir-Suzdal principality was conquered by the Mongols.

In the 14th-16th centuries, Moscow principality became the center of unification of Russian lands. The history of the Moscow region is inextricably linked to military events of the Time of Troubles - the siege of the Trinity-Sergius Monastery by the troops of False Dmitry II, the first and second militias.

More historical facts…

In 1708, by decree of Peter the Great, Moskovskaya gubernia (province) was established. It included most of the territory of present Moscow oblast. In 1712, St. Petersburg became the capital of the Russian Empire and the significance of the Moscow region as the country’s economic center began to decrease.

In 1812, the Battle of Borodino took place near Moscow. It was the biggest battle of the Russian-French War of 1812. In the second half of the 19th century, especially after the peasant reform of 1861, the Moscow province experienced economic growth. In 1851, the first railway connected Moscow and St. Petersburg; in 1862 - Nizhny Novgorod.

The population of the Moscow region increased significantly (in 1847 - 1.13 million people, in 1905 - 2.65 million). On the eve of the First World War, Moscow was a city with a population of more than one million people.

In November, 1917, the Soviet power was established in the region. In 1918, the country’s capital was moved from St. Petersburg to Moscow that contributed to economic recovery of the province. In the 1920s-1930s, a lot of churches located near Moscow were closed, a large number of cultural monuments were destroyed. On January 14, 1929, Moscow Oblast was formed.

In 1941-1942, one of the most important battles of the Second World War took place on the territory of the region - the Battle for Moscow. In the postwar years, the growth of economic potential of the region continued; several science cities were founded (Dubna, Troitsk, Pushchino, Chernogolovka).

In the 1990s, the economy of Moscow Oblast experienced a deep crisis. Since the 1990s, due to the motorization of the population and commuting, road traffic situation in the Moscow region significantly deteriorated. Traffic jams have become commonplace.
