Trekking in Maribetta

Maribetta is a perfect weekend getaway around Bangalore. It offers a rejuvenating break from the cacophony of the urban life. The landscape is marked with numerous rocky hills, and atop one of the smaller hills is the Durga temple, hence the name Maribetta. In the local language Mari means Durga and Betta is hill.

To visit the temple situated at a height of 1200 feet, one needs to trek through the rocky terrain, slopes, thick vegetation, and almost barren land. You pass through majestic monolithic rocks. The view from the top of the valley is grand, you feel surrounded by gigantic monolithic peaks. You move on a straight path to reach the valley where the Temple stands.

The other arduous Trekking Trail leads you through the narrow valley, rocky slopes and thorny bushes. The climb on this route is quite steep. However, reaching the summit, you are rewarded with a panoramic view of the valley down and the surrounding areas.

The campsite is beautiful and the staff here is helpful also they serve good food timely so we just have the perfect vacation.
