Anthargange is a destination that will surely please the adventure buffs. The name Anthargange actually refers to a perennial spring, which lies on the hills to the East of Kolar district in Karnataka. The spring gushes its ways through some massive rock formations that come together to form a warren of big and small caves.
This rocky hill range has a dense forest at the base, which is also worth exploring. The vegetation thins out towards the apex of the rock structure and the top is crowned with some thorny bushes.
Adventure Options For Travellers
