It is actually an island, surrounded by the rivulets of Cauvery river, encircling its banks on all sides. And, along with this comes a beautiful resort, situated amongst the lush greens of the Nisargadhama Island, right in the middle of the walkable piece of land. The hanging bridge that took me across the river was an amazing experience. And to add to this were the ever-adventurous opportunities to row a boat in the river streams, and go on some enjoyable elephant rides and mostly the exceedingly incredible views of the flora and fauna around the island. Especially numerous species of deer, peacocks, monkeys and birds - all inhabitants in their very natural habitat.
The next stop was the Talakaveri, the birth place of the River Kaveri. This place is around 5 KM from Bhagamandala and is 1276M above sea level. We offered our prayers in the temple.There are steps in Talakaveri that lead up to the Bhramagiri peak. Our parents were reluctant to let us go to the peak as it was around 2:30 PM and very hot. However, we three ( My niece, sister and I) insisted on going to the top. The 350 approx steps were totally worth it. The View from the top was totally amazing. We took several snaps and were back within half and hour.
