Details

We'll be cycling, camping, trekking and kayaking in Gandikota over the Republic Day weekend. The word "Gandi" means gorge and "Kota" means fort. Gandikota is home to a 13th century fort perched atop the canyon cliffs and overlooking the ancient Pennar river that meanders through the gorge. Our campsite for the weekend lies beside the fort and overlooks the majestic beauty of the canyon. The biking trails we've mapped out will give you spectacular views of the valley as you ride beside the wind energy farms lining the cliff tops. A large part of the ride will be over mud & gravel trails, with no other souls in sight.
