Trip Planner: Asia / India / Karnataka / Chamarajanagar District / Chamarajanagar / Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta
Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta, is a hill (betta in Kannada) located in the Chamarajanagar district of the state of Karnataka,at a height of 1450m India and is extensively wooded. It is also the highest peak in the Bandipur National Park. It lies in the core area of the Bandipur National Park and is frequented by wild life including elephants. Dense fog predominates and covers the hills round the year and thus gets the prefix Himavad(in the native language of Kannada) and the temple of Venugopalaswamy (Lord Krishna) gives the full name of Himavad Gopalaswamy BettaPlan my Chamarajanagar trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

In dilemma if we should skip as we had to enter the Bandipur forest due to time restriction. But we would have missed it as the view from the temple is simply awesome. one can approach by own... more »

Very beautiful place to visit on weekends, hill temple amidst Bandipur forest range, can view huge elephant herds from the top n bushy jungles, u can touch the clouds n be with them on top of the hill. The govt bus ride to reach there is a bit scary. Beautiful picnic spot for in n around Mysore people
Awesome place period! Peaceful, divine, breath taking views. They will not allow private vehicles to the top near the temple. (They used to, not anymore) Vehicles need to be parked below mountain and government bus would take people to the top. They charge RS. 20 for anyone above age 6. Route to the top of the mountain is beautiful. The temple at the is simple yet beautiful, divine and well maintained. There is also free food (prasada) at the temple. At the top is now kinda restricted as it is now Tiger and elephant reserve zone. The forest gate keepers are pretty strict and do not allow people to wander around.
