ADVENTURE IN KARNATAKA

Rock Climbing
Ramnagaram, 50 km from Bangalore on the Bangalore-Mysore highway, is considered as the Mecca of rock climbing. The place abounds in rock formations, that are a climber's delight. Even those who have no exposure to rock climbing, can learn it on the artificial wall set up at the State Youth Centre in Bangalore, and then set off on trekking expeditions under expert care and guidance.

Water Sports
Tucked away amidst the lush greenery of the Western Ghats, along the Sharavathy backwaters, is Honnemardu - a haven for aqua adventure enthusiasts. Lovers of water sports throng this idyllic spot for coracle rafting, canoeing and windsurfing. Numerous islands dotting the backwaters make it an ideal island camping site, too.

Trekking
If trekking is your cup of tea, over 200 trails have been explored and marked in the Western Ghats, for trekking and nature trails.

River Rafting and Angling
The azure waters of the river Cauvery, are ideal for river rafting. 82 km from Mysore is the Cauvery Fishing Camp, at Bhimeshwari. It is a paradise for anglers, with mahseers found in abundance. This place is also accessible from Bangalore (100 km).
