Enjoy a Nature Walk to Muthyala Madu

Also known as the Pearl Valley, Muthyala Madu is one of the most spectacular sites to visit in Anekal. The place brings travelers close to nature: embark on a morning trail to the hilly terrains of the valley, which is located 40 kilometers away from Bangalore and approximately four kilometers from Anekal. The site offers picturesque views of the green surroundings and is a fabulous picnic spot if you’re with family or friends. Muthyala Madu is popular for the miniature water fall that cascades down from a height of 280 feet, shining bright and brilliant as a pearl in the morning rays.
