Join us for a fun ride to explore the pretty countryside in Rajankunte and surrounding areas, near Bangalore’s Kempegowda International Airport. Our route passes through small towns, and covers quiet and pleasant country roads flanked by fields and farms. Make pit stops at a couple of quarries enroute, where you can take in these dramatic landscapes that are shaped as a result of human interference. The wet season adds to this scene as water gathers to form small pools across the area.

The highlight of this tour is the location of a powder blue-coloured shrine perched on a granite tower and overlooking the white stone quarry around.
