Bheemana Kindi is a natural rock formation resulting in a Arch ( hillock ) located in Kenchanahalli village on Halgur – Channapatna Road 87 Kms from Banashankari, Bengaluru. Mythology says that Bheema sliced the rocks with his mace ( gade) into two pieces, hence this place is known as Bheemana Kindi.
BASC planned a one day Trek almost after a year, 29 of met at Banashankari Bus stand The highlight of the trek were 2 little ones who are avid trekkers. Samrudh is in class II and Sushmitha is in class III. who motivated us to plan ahead. We pooled in 6 vehicles and zipped towards Kanakapura ( 50 Kms) which is a hours drive. Our next pitstop was at Vasavi Food Joint ( before Taluk Office) Kanakapura. This place is famous for Masala Dosa and Tatte Idly. After hogging the Masala Dosa & relinquishing Kaapi and getting our food packed ( Puliyogare) we headed towards Halgur. After zipping past Sathnur, we reached Halgur Circle and took right turn to reach Kenchana Halli Cross on Channapatna Road. After zipping past the Kenchanahalli Village, we landed at Kanive Anjaneya Temple which is located opposite at the foot hills of this hillock. Parked our vehicles in the temple premises and got ready to trek after the lunch packets were distributed.
Before the trek, we took a group pic clicked by our friend, a JCB operator who was working nearby in laying trench to ensure water flow to the fields.
After initial introduction, we set out for the trek. Fortunately it was a pleasant weather, cloudy though Sun played Hide n seek. We trekked across the Mango Grove and tilled fields to reach the trekking path from the Pump House . After confirming the attendance, we set out after a brief photo session of the team. This trek is ideal for the first timers. Even though its not treacherous, it gives one the wonderful feeling about the trekk. Both the kidos kept us on our feet and challenged us to climb.
Our team comprised of Husband – Wife , Mother – Son combination, Sisters, Colleagues and Friends who were part of this wonderful team. Since we had first time trekkers, we took regular breaks to ensure they are not tired. After motivating them and couple of photo session through out the trail. we reached the Kalyani ( no water) . But all our hero’s and heroin’s of the day fielded for photo session opp Kalyani and relaxed before we started trekking towards the Peak. We were also welcomed by our Monkey Friends who came to inspect what we were carrying with us.
We could get a lovely scenery of the village from the top and admired the
nature’s beauty before embarking towards the main place for our lunch break. After covering the trekk trail, we finally reached the Bheemana Kindi and were welcomed by two huge boulders to the Temple across the rock formation. This place was damn cool and gave us a break . After finishing our Lunch , formal introduction of each member and never to forget the poetry session by our Geethakka, we set out to the peak of the summit which is further across the boulders. After hopping across the rocks and finally making it to the peak, we had a photo session,
before climbing down to the destination where our monsters were waiting to take us back to Bangalore. We were now geared to face the traffic jams once we entered Bengaluru city limits
Over all it was a wonderful trek to cherish and all our first timers left the memory saying we will return for yet another trek with this group.
