    Kunti Betta is a hillock with an elevation of 3155 feet above the sea level. This excellent off the radar destination is just around 130 KM away from the Bangalore city and serves as a popular trekking destination. The rugged terrain filled with boulders of different sizes is considered among the most sought after trekking getaways around Bangalore. You can find steep monolithic rocks, abandoned caves and scattered grasslands on this trail. The hawk-eye view of Tonnuru Lake and the surrounding lush green sugarcane fields from the top of the hills is simply breathtaking to put it mildly.

    Kunti Betta also offers you the opportunity of night trekking and overnight camping. A night trek allows the trekkers to witness the beauty of the nature under the spell of moonlight. Overnight camping on top of the hills with campfire is an amazing adventure. And yeah, don't forget to catch the stunning views of sunrise in the morning. The place comes alive as the first ray of sun touches down the earth's surface. You may also explore the Chunchanghatte falls formed by the Cauvery river while on a trip to Kunti Betta.
