Kunti Betta night trek is a standout amongst the most famous and thrilling trekking encounters one can swear by near Bangalore. A night trek gives you zest and tingles your adventurous bone; the night tends to sharpen the body sensations and ignites a feeling of uncertainty and curiosity about your trail.
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 about 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.
