Gopalaswamy Hills, Mysore
Perched at a
height of 1454 m the relatively unknown Gopalaswamy Betta is an idyllic and
especially beautiful hill station tucked 75 km away from Mysore. Enveloped
in mist most of the time, the hills are literally an abode in the clouds
giving one an ethereal feeling of walking in them. As the mist rises from
the hillock, the surroundings become visible offering breathtaking glimpses.
There are many scenic valleys, gorges and hills like Neeladri, Hamsadri,
Garudadri, Pallava and Mallikajunagiri.
Abounding in rare flora, the region is virtually a storehouse of medicinal plants.
A 13th century fort of the Palegars of Terakanambi and a temple within is believed to have been patronised by the Mysore Maharajas.
Far more wooded and quiet than many other hill stations, Gopalaswamy Betta is like a watch tower for the Bandipur Wildlife Sanctuary and is an ideal picnic spot.
Distance : 75 km from Mysore.
Arrival : Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) buses ply from Mysore to Hangala. The hill station is situated 16 km southwest of Gundulpet. From Hangala a deviation to the right is taken. There are two routes leading to the spot. They are Gopalapura - Kumagahalli and Gundi - Vijayapura- Hangala.
A tarred stretch of road, 18 km long makes it very convenient for vehicles to reach the summit.
