I’ve been to Mallandur hills in N. R. Pura which is very refreshing trek of 5 kms. There is a small pond on the top of the hill. One more worth trekking is , we can see both Bhadra and Tunga back waters. The altitude is more than 1000 mts and is covered by lush ever green forest. Worth trying and can be trekked through out the year.
