If you are a trekking enthusiast and always wanted to make your parents experience what you love doing the most then why not take them on a trek? I have been to almost all the treks near Bangalore among which below are the easiest and best treks you can take your parents without any issue.

Bettamugilalam and Panchapalli Dam - A ride through the forest 13/05/2018

Place:  Bettamugilalam, Aiyur forest and Panchapalli Dam Distance:  200 km round trip Type:  Forest, Sightseeing Ideal for: Friends It's not about the destination but the road we take.  This trip has proved the above quote right.

I wanted to ride through the forest in this summer so Bettamugilalam was a perfect choice for me. Best of the beast: The beautiful route through the Bamboo forest Sunday Morning: Bangalore climate was fluctuating from scorching sun in the afternoon to thunderstorm rain at evening. So we decided to start early and be back to home before 3 pm. The plan went well and we hit the road at 5.30 in the morning. Umesh joined from silk board juncti
