Oravakallu Rock Garden

Oravakallu Rock Garden Millions of years of wind and water erosion have chiselled the hillocks around Oravakallu, resulting in a beautiful array of shapes and formations. A section of the rock shelters have been designated as the Oravakallu Rock Garden, where pavements have been built for easy access. 


The rock garden is a choice spot for rock climbing, bouldering and bird watching. However, you will have to bring your own shoes and equipment. There is also a children's park and gallery of sculptures fashioned from salvaged machine and automobile parts in the rock garden's precincts.A water body courses through the boulders, creating a small gorge in the middle that culminates in a lake.Steps cut into the stones take you to a vantage Point, which has panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding rock formations.



Orvakallu is often used as a location for film shoots. In recent years, rampant mining of quartz and silica that abound in the rocks have posed a threat to the ancient geological formations.
