It's Rocking

Ramanagaram is passionately called the 'Rock Climbers Mecca', at 1000+ MSL it is spread over 4-5 kms in radius encompassing seven major hills, many hillocks and large boulders.

Naach Basanti Naach the famous line from the all-time super hit movie Sholay echoes as one reaches Ramanagaram, just wondering where Gabbar-ka-adda was. Who would have ever imagined Sholay that was shot in Ramanagaram would be such a big hit and that the movie would rock even after three decades, I guess such is the might of Ramanagaram Rocks.

Ramanagaram is passionately called the ‘Rock Climbers Mecca’, at 1000+ MSL it is spread over 4-5 kms in radius encompassing seven major hills, many hillocks and large boulders. A week-end or a holiday would mean that you get to see the rock climbers of Bangalore doing what they do the best, climbing those magnificent rock faces and enjoying the aura of the place.

The boulders of all kinds and shapes en-route give enough challenges to a learner and an experienced climber, making the trek up to the hill more and more exciting. The texture of the rock can rip off the skin in case you are not careful enough, but what the heck, there is nothing bad in having few bruises here and there when you want to do some good bouldering.

As you explore the landscape you will find few good rappelling faces, you could just fix ropes and start rappelling or could use the bolted routes to go up the rock face and then rappel down. The rock face near the pond on the hill have some 8+ bolted routed and if you are confident enough, know the basics of rock climbing and have climbing gear and equipments that is harness, carabineers, belay device, ropes, quick draws, climbing shoes and a good partner to belay, you could do some real rock climbing all day long.

Whatever the case may be any activity in adventure sports has to be a calculated risk and it’s important to take the calculated risk more seriously. The rocks are always there to climb only if return safe.

The splendid landscape surrounding the hill are picture perfect and gives enough scenery to a lens man/woman to click around. Every shot and every frame can redefine the way one feel about the rocks.

Every place has a history, so does Ramanagaram rather a vibrant one also not to miss silky present — it’s the largest cocoon marketing center. The name Ramanagaram was officially christened in 1949, originates from the village Ramagiri on the foot hill of Ramadevarabetta (hill of lord Ram).

Ramanagaram is around 50 kms from Bangalore on the Bangalore-Mysore highway and is the taluk center for Bangalore Rural district. Situated on the banks of the river Arkavati, mention of Ramanagaram is recorded as early as 268 AD during the rule of Mauryas to Gangas, Cholas, Chalukyas, Hoysalas, Vijayanagar rulers, Kempagowda, Mysore kings, Hyder Ali, Tipu Sultan and the British.

The hill has a Sri Ram temple that is built in the Dravidian style; to many rulers this place was of great strategic significance. It is also believed that saint Sri Ramanujacharya had visited this hill. There is a mention of Ramagiri in Ramayan, 16th century works of Renukaradhya and in Sarvajna vachanas.

As a traveller who would like to just visit or as adventure sport enthusiast wanting to scale the rock faces, Ramanagaram simply rocks. All you need to do is have a rocking time and keep the place litter free.
