by Madhav Srinivasan 5 year, 7 months ago

Taking a trip to Bheemeshwari can be serenely satisfying for nature lovers and adventure seekers, mainly because of its untouched natural beauty, peaceful locales and rich wildlife...

If adventure tourism is your kind of thing, the best thing for you to do would be to opt for a stay at Bheemeshwari. Located at an easy 11/2-hour drive from Bangalore, Bheemeshwari offers every tourist a choice of activities designed to make him connect with nature.

How You Can Reach Bheemeshwari

Bheemeshwari is located on the banks of the River Cauvery. It is situated at a distance of 100 km from India’s silicon city, Bangalore, just off the Kanakapura-Kollegal Highway and numerous packages from Bangalore are available. If you’re travelling through a private vehicle, you should take a left turn off Sathanur, which is located at a distance of about 15 kilometres from Kanakapura.The Muttathi Road leads to Bheemeshwari after a five kilometre drive.

The Wildlife in Bheemeshwari

Bheemeshwari is located in the midst of a verdant forest and an intrepid naturalist can spot deer, jackals, leopards, elephants and giant Malabar squirrels as they come down to the Cauvery river. The river is home to the mighty Mahseer and Bheemeshwari is an angler’s paradise for this reason. 

The Attractions Around the Region

Bheemeshwari is located between the Mekedatu and Shivasamudra falls on the Cauvery. Other towns around the location are Doddamakamli and Galibore, both of which are good camping and angling sites. The Kokkrebelur Bird Sanctuary lies at a distance of 20 kms and is a protected habitat for painted storks. So book your Bheemeshwari tours in Karnataka for an enchating experience. 

What You Can Do

  • Angling: The River Cauvery at Bheemeshwari is home to the Mahseer. Angling is a serious sport here and catches of Mahseer weighing up to 100 pounds have been recorded. You do need a license to fish here, though.
  • Rafting: The Cauvery River runs wild at Bheemeshwari and white water rafting can be done along some stretches. The calmer stretches are where locals take tourists on coracle rides.
  • Trekking: Avid trekkers can go up to Basavana Betta and experience a panoramic view of the valley with the Cauvery winding its way through.
  • Bird Watching: There are observation platforms built along the river and naturalists can spot a large variety of birds ranging from pied crested cuckoos, darters, kingfishers, storks and cranes.
  • Mountain Biking: The trails around Bheemeshwari are rocky and they can test the most seasoned mountain biker. Nothing can quite match the exhilaration of zooming these trails past on wheels on the rugged terrain.     
  • Coracle Ride: One of the most popular activity in Bheemeshwari is the Coracle Ride. Get on these circular wooden boats and enjoy a close encounter with the aquatic beings in the Cauvery river.      

When You Should Visit Bheemeshwari

Summers are swelteringly hot in Bheemeshwari, so this is not an ideal time to check the place out. The monsoon sees hordes of mosquitoes and the flooded Cauvery will not be navigable between June and August. The best season to book Bheemeshwari holiday tours in South India would be between September and February.

If you’re in the mood for some adventure, Bheemeshwari would be an ideal spot to visit, thanks to its raw locales and adrenaline laced opportunities.
