What do our experts think about the Uttari Betta trek?
The journey can be started at night, with the goal of reaching the summit by dawn. The journey starts in a small village. After a long, dark walk through the village, you will reach the barricade. Seven stone holes will be passed. You will find rocky outcrops, cliffs that cut through the boulders on this steep trail. After you have crossed these gates, you will find yourself at the bottom of a steep slope with a Shankeshwar Temple at the top. You can see the temple from the top, and it is so beautiful that you can keep your brain active for a few seconds. The path crosses the sanctuary and continues past a small forest to reach a completely new world. It ends at a grassy hilltop surrounded by boulders.
This is where you can see the dawn of a fresh day at the summit. There are only green grass, blue skies and large, gray rock to help us. This wonderful moment is worth embracing for as long and as you can, it will remind you of the great harmony that you felt back then and later when you wish.
We are able to enjoy the beauty of the morning, thanks to the beautiful combination of colors that we see in it. We will soon descend to base camp. Keep your eyes open, even if you’re tempted by the beauty of the slopes. Stop for breakfast before heading to Bangalore.
