Anthargange Tourism

Anthargange is situated in the Kolar district of Karnataka in the Shathashrunga range, about 70 km from Bangalore. The mountains at an altitude of 1712 meters from sea level with rocky boulders, small caves and dense plantations are one of the best getaways for trekking, rock climbing and cave exploration enthusiasts.

The name Anthargange refers to the perpetual spring that flows through the rocks from the middle of the mountains. The name literally means 'Inner Stream' or 'Ganges from the deep' in Kanada. The origin of this stream is still a mystery. It also houses the Kashi Vishweshwara Temple which attracts devotees as well.

- Carry food preferable dry snacks or instant ready meals- Carry torches with extra battery in case of going for cave explorations at night- Wear rubber soled shoes to climb the rock and prevent slipping- The place is packed with monkeys who are an expert in searching and snatching food from the tourists. Beware of that- Carry lighters or matchboxes to make a small bonfire during night cave explorations
