Feel the clouds once you start ascending the hills, Since the Hills are under the control of Forest department , travellers has to follow the rules and regulations, time limit has been framed for the travellers. Elephants and other animals can be seen if you are lucky..!!

We visited Gopalaswamy betta on 11-Jan-2015. Though we planned to be there by 8:30 AM, we reached at 9:30 AM. We stayed in a surprisingly good hotel Misty Rock in Gundlupet. Anyone planning to stay near Gopalaswamy betta should definitely try Misty Rock. It has very clean, spacious and modern rooms. Gopalaswamy betta is around 30 minutes (18 Kms) from... More

The Himavad Gopal Swamy temple is just too good. It is 84 kms from Mysore via Nanjangud and Gundlupet. The road up to the foot of the hills is very good. But the 5kms climb up the hill will take you 30 minutes as the road is completely broken and very narrow at certain places. Once you reach the hillock... More

If you have ever dreamt of touching the sky, Himvad Gopalaswamy Betta(hill) is the place for you. Located in Chamarajanagar district-Karnataka is a beautiful temple which is 2800 feet above sea level. It was recommended to me as one of the temples to visit in Karnataka-India. It lies strategically at the highest peak in the Bandipur National Park. On the... More

Gopalswamy Betta is located off the Mysore Ooty highway. This is a 8 km detour from the main highway, and a real gem of a place at the top. The temple at top is dedicated to Lord Gopalswamy and is called Himavad Gopalswamy betta. The reason it is called so, is inside the sanctum santorum, you will always find dew... More

This seven hundred year old temple situated very close to Bandipur National Park. Whenever you are going to Bandipur or Ooty Via Mysore ( from Bangalore ) or Gundalpet ( from Kerala ) this place is an extra asset to your trip. This is situated in a beautiful hill near Bandipur National Park. I am not much aware about the... More

I have visited this place twice. I am in awe of the nature around the temple. Uphill road to the temple is very calm, quite. You can enjoy tranquility at its best. After driving for around 20 to 25 minutes from base near bandipur, you reach the hilltop and you are welcomed with windy atmosphere. Feels like heaven. Generally you... More

This trip to the temple I had my camera. The priest did the blessings in English for me as well. We ride there on our bike and if we stopped I promise I could hear elephants trumpeting. It is the most beautiful drive and one I plan on taking again and again from Mysore. This time returning I was engaged... More
