- Biligirirangana range
- of hills (B R Hills)

Biligirirangana range of hills (B R Hills) Lose yourself in these ancient hills, which take their name from the Ranganatha Swamy Temple that sits at the edge of a granite precipice with a drop of more than 1000ft. into a dense forest. Find inner peace at the foot of the great champak tree (Dodda Sampige,) believed to be more than 2000 years old and worshipped by the Soligas, the tribals of that area. Don't miss the coffee estates, the tribal hamlets and the Vivekananda Girijana Kalyana Kendra which displays preserved tribal information and the biodiversity of the region. There are many trekking trails here, including one that leads up to Honnamati, the highest point of the range.

Biligirirangana Hills or simply BR Hills is a mere 230 km from Bangalore (90 km from Mysore) but a whole different path to a wonderful jungle experience. This range of hills is picturesquely located between the Cauvery and Kabini rivers. It stands 5,091 ft. above MSL and provides a panoramic view of the lush
forests below.
