Day 1

Bangalore - shivasamudram

5:00am - The drive began with a small hatch and few friends.

6:00am - Outskirts of bangalore as there was a bit of traffic and consumed time.

The climate had a cloudy presence.It took about 4 hrs to reach with only a couple of stops for refreshments.

10:00am - The place had only a few tourists and some snack stalls and shops.There was shortage of rainfall this year and so the waterfall was not at it's full vigor.

Clicked some pics and went over to see gaganachukki falls.There are stairways leading to a point towards the waterfall but the path was closed midway and one has to view the falls from a distance which was a bit disappointing.

2:00pm - Continued on our way and stopped nearby bheemeshwari where tourists were gathered and made our way a little further up the river to avoid congestion and to relax and click some pics.After we had our fun we headed back to bangalore.

There is a resort where if interested can be utilized for stay and safari.
