Camping under the stars is an experience that everybody loves. The cool breeze, the dark skies, the warm campfire along with the twinkling stars is a perfect getaway. Plan The Unplanned brings to you not just another camping experience but camping in Magadi Valley, a land rich in organic farms. By the end of the experience, you will go home with a lot of knowledge of flora, fauna, organic and sustainable farming
A mere 40kms away from the bustling city of Bengaluru is a working farm and biodiversity education center targeting young minds and progressive farmers nestled in a valley surrounded by beautiful scenic views. This farm is located near the Magadi district and is known for the conservation of traditional varieties of vegetables, food, grains, medicinal plants, and livestock which has been certified as fully organic since 2005. The farm is in the ambiance of a thriving ecosystem that is home to 250 identical species of plants, 50+ species of birds, and wildlife. It also has a spectacular view of sunrise.
This is a perfect getaway for those who enjoy the simple pleasures of being one with nature. There is simply so much to be looked at on the farm like the amazing world of plants, insects, farm animals, local flora & fauna. There also is a hands-on farming experience, bird watching, nature games and activities, hiking and night trek, campfire with a social night, and exploring the local culture. We assure you that this experience will make you realize the importance of organic and sustainable farming, the health benefits from nature’s exquisite herbs, and how simple it really is to integrate this into our normal lives

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.

Q: What makes Magadi Valley unique?
A: It is a hilltop fort in Karnataka's Tumkur district that is close to Madhugiri. Within the fort, there are a few temples and historic buildings. One of the best places for trekking around Bangalore is this. In the Middle Ages, Channarayana Durga served as a strategic fortification, and several battles were waged to claim it.

A: If you go trekking during the monsoon season, you will almost certainly encounter leeches along the way.
Q: Is it possible to camp anywhere along the trail?
A: It's not necessary to camp atop Channarayana Durga either. The walk may be finished in one day, returning you to the base settlement. Additionally, the fact that hikers are camped atop the hill may not be well received by the locals at the base. If you wish to set up camp, you can ask the locals for permission and find a spot close to the base in one of the farmlands.
Q: Is it possible to trek Magadi Valley during the monsoon season?
A: No, it is not possible to trek Channarayana Durga during the monsoon season.
