Since Cauvery is overflowing ,last weekend, we(purusan and pondaati) had been to Shivanasamudra. Ok?

Karnataka Waterfalls 067
* It is around 120 kms from Bangalore (It also depends on where you are in Bangalore)
Karnataka Waterfalls 117Karnataka Waterfalls 134
* There is lots of water, and I suppose it should be the same for next 1 month at least.
* Only 1 hotel in Gaganachukki. So it is better to pack your own food.
Karnataka Waterfalls 011Karnataka Waterfalls 019
* Whilst going, we went via Maddur and on the way back we came via Kanakapura Road. Maddur to Malavalli is bad (Not very bad). Otherwise the roads are good.
Karnataka Waterfalls 164
* Kanakapura road (NH209) is very good from Bangalore to Kanakapura and from Kanakapura to Malavalli. In Kanakapura the roads are stolen by someone. In case you know who stole them, please inform the police.
Karnataka Waterfalls 165Karnataka Waterfalls 090
* If you are visiting Shivanasamudra, ensure that you view the waterfalls at Barachukki, behind the Dargah and also at Gaganachukki.
*In case you pack your food, beware of monkeys. (I meant the ones with the tail. Not the ones which try to jump or overtake you when you are climbing down the rocks)
