Oxfam Trailwalker India route consists of more mud tracks and kuccha roads to make the walking experience pleasurable. It starts from Pearl Valley locally named as “Muthyala Maduvu”, Anekal to Eagleton in Bidadi. 100 km is challenging enough so, the improvised trail is more delightful; it has increased number of fields and villages and forests have been skipped, greater number of trees will provide relief for intermediate breaks and rests before the checkpoints.
The name “Pearl Valley” at Bengaluru has been derived from the fact that, when the water falls from a great height and strikes the ground, it scatters like drops of pearls. This is a beautiful sight and with the sunrays glistening on the water drops, the sight becomes all the more spectacular. It is one of the most preferred picnic spot for the locals. Located at 45Km distance from Bengaluru, Muthyala Maduvu (Pearl Valley) is enclosed by many big and small hills.
