From the top, one can see the hillocks of the Kanakapura range, including BM betta and KabbaLa durga. On a bright sunny day, Savanadurga can be seen.
The Trekking Trail starts from Konala Doddi (which is about 58 kms from Bangalore City Junction - Bilikal Betta is 6 kms from here). Bilikal Rangaswamy Trek is a moderate one with a well-marked path up till the peak. The trekking takes 2.5 hrs uphill and about 1.5 hr downhill. The trail begins with a half kilometer walk on a relatively level path, after which the forest becomes denser and the gradient of slope increases drastically. The trail constantly winds uphill at an incline and includes slightly steep stretches.
Bilikal Rangaswamy Betta belongs to the Eastern Ghats and is filled with shrub forest. Elephants and other animals can be spotted in these forests during the night. The view from the top is very picturesque as one can see the hillocks from the surrounding Kanakapura range, mainly BM betta, Kabbala durga and Savanadurga too.
Best time to visit Bilikal Rangaswamy Betta is during the post-monsoon season of August to January. Hotels are available at Harohalli. No shops are available at Koonala Doddi and afterward, so need to carry your own food and water.
