ADVENTURE IN KARNATAKA
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

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