A route with dense greenery in South Bangalore- Muthyala Maduvu a.k.a Pearl Valley is located around 30km from Meenakshi mall.
The route is quite scenic and far away from heavy traffic. You can expect to find smooth tarmac and open green fields on both sides to relish your eyes. With an elevation gain of just 492m, this route will not be a hassle even for beginners.

We start off from Meenakshi Mall on Bannerghatta road. To avoid heavy traffic on Bannerghatta road we’ll be taking an immediate diversion to Doddakammanahali road and then further joining the Koppa-Begur road. This road is quite smooth, rolling and free from traffic. After about 12 kms you’ll reach Koppa Gate. From here we’ll be taking a left off Bannerghatta road towards Jigani.
From the Jigani junction, we’ll be riding along the Jigani- Anekal road for another 10km until we reach the Gorenahali Bus stop. We’ll be taking a right from here and will continue towards Pearl valley via Anekal-Sunavara road.

Upon reaching Pearl valley you’ll be greeted with a small lake. Great place to take tons of pictures or to take a dip in the lake if you fancy that- be careful though.
Opposite the lake, you can venture in for a few meters to find a viewpoint of the pearl valley.

Just before the lake, there’s a small park too! where you can relax after completing half the ride. Narrow stairs near the park lead to the Muthyala Maduvu waterfalls. If you are lucky enough you might see the waterfall in all its glory. Again, don’t forget to click more kickass pictures. Happy and safe riding !!
