Located just at the nook of Bangalore city, 3 km from Kanakapura, Bananthimari Betta or Maribetta or Karadibetta is a twin hillock surrounded by lush greenery and spectacular scenery.  Bananthimari is made of two words: ‘Bananthi’ meaning ‘mother who is nursing a newborn’ and ‘mari’ meaning ‘the violent goddess’. It gets its name as Bananthimari Betta from the temple that is situated at the base of the peak. 

Bananthimari Betta is a monolith, and the highest point is at 2090 feet. On the way to the top, you will get an opportunity to meet villagers tending their flocks and collecting firewood. 

The trek is notorious among people who tend to lose their way, but with Plan the Unplanned, you can rest assured about it and just enjoy small streams, a pond and a waterfall. It’s meant for people who appreciate raw nature, photographers and trekkers. Being an easy trek, it is equally good for beginners and experts alike. The best part is the trek is a quick getaway from Bangalore, so you can just Plan the Unplanned. Check out the complete itinerary here:
Not only this trek is a super master of scenic views, but it also thrills you with the historic fort walls, intricate stone steps. An interesting fact is that this hill fort is said to have eight gateways from the foot to the summit in addition to the other several outer gates. What waits on the top? The trek summit delivers the temple of Shankareswar where one gets an extensive view of the landscape dotted by a large number of hills.

This exclusive sunrise trek with Plan The Unplanned, takes you right into the middle of nature with the help of caves, jungles and huge boulders that will make you marvel at the immensity of life. It makes sure that the trekkers feel at one with the abundant wildlife and vegetation that its path has to offer. So if you want to completely belong to nature, come along on this trek and get to be a part of something bigger than all of us.

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!

Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.

Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!
