Located at a distance of only 20 km outside Bengaluru, Turahalli is a sprawling verdant forest that is a perfect escapade from the chaos and din of the city into nature. The forest is sprinkled with huge rock boulders that make it a perfect spot not only to sit and relax but also to pose and take great pictures with the forest in the backdrop. Vehicles have been banned inside the forest with the exceptions of cycles. It has excellent cycling trails so you can find a lot of cyclists visiting here especially in the mornings.
Because of the presence of several rock boulders, you can also find adventure enthusiasts here. These climbers visit regularly to practice to participate in national as well as international competitions. In addition to that, the forest supports a rich and varied wildlife, both in terms of flora and fauna. The trees are mostly eucalyptus among other species. Several animals and birds can also be spotted in the jungle. Since there are no eateries or food stalls that can be found here, it is best advised to carry food along.
