Mountain Biking to Rakkitha Kanda and Trek to Kurulangala
Just 3 km from the resort, you’ll arrive at the Rakkitha Kanda archeological site. It consists of prehistoric and historic monuments like drip ledge caves, Brahmin inscriptions, cave temple, paintings, sculptures and a stupa.
Next you’ll trek straight up 7 km to Kurulangala where you can see historical rock paintings. Kurullan means birds in English. The belief is that two birds protect the paintings with a horrible ear-piercing sound. So take your earplugs just in case.
From Kurulangala there is a panoramaic view of the mountains below.It is recommended you begin your trek before sunrise so you will have to leave the resort around 5 am. But you will take our 4WD back to the resort.
