All About It
Plan The Unplanned presents to you a fun-filled adventure, popular one-day trekking near Bangalore Antharagange Trek with Cave Exploration. Antharagange literally translates to “The Ganges from the deep” and is located around seventy kilometers from Bangalore in the Kolar District of Karnataka which lies in the Shathashrunga range. A mountain with an altitude of 1712 meters from sea level hosting rocky boulders and small caves all set to be explored which is wrapped with a dense plantation. Antargange is known as the Kashi of the south as it is home to the famous Sri Kashi Vishweshwara temple. The temple dedicated to Lord Shiva has a pond with a continuous flow of underground water from the Basava/Stone bull’s mouth. The mountain is also home to seven villages. Anthargange is a perfect one day getaway into nature for a small trek, some adrenaline-filled rock climbing, and exploring ancient caves! Also, the view from the top is picturesque.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops? This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day!
