Sholay Cycling Adventure Tour
Gabbar: Jo darr gaya samjho marr gaya!
Relive moments from the Bollywood saga, Sholay, on this one-day biking tour off Bangalore. On this cycling trip, we make way to the dramatic ‘bouldery’ landscape of Ramanagaram, scaling the steep massive stones and hopping across narrow ravines. This rock-scape has been quite a favourite with India’s movie industry. Infact not only Bollywood, even English productions have used this wondrous site- David Lean’s A Passage to India was also filmed here. A number of legendary songs and movies have used this spectacular landscape as backdrop to scenes. Besides movie accolades, Ramanagaram has more to offer.
As the name suggests, the town has a strong connection to the Hindu epic, Ramayana. It is believed that Rama, Sita and Lakshmana passed through this place during their Aranyavasa (exile in the forest).We climb the Ramadevara Betta hill, visit the ‘Lord Rama temple after climbing about 300 steps to the peak and also see the mystical pool, ‘Ram Teertha’.The view from the top of the hill is astounding and you will find nothing but the sound of silence for company.
