Its a very beautiful place. Dam base is nearly half a km away from entry gate and roads are surrounded by lush green vegetation. there is a garden and zoo too, so bring your kids is not a bad idea.
Constructed across river Tungabhadra (a tributary of River Krishna), Tungabhadra dam is the largest dam of Karnataka. Located roughly 5 kilometres from the town of Hospet, it offers an arresting sight blurring the horizon between sky and water. After parking the car before the security entrance, an uphill stretch of a few kilometres takes you to the Tungabhadra Dam. Fringed with beautiful trees on both sides, clean roads and chirping birds, this is an optimal path for a morning stroll.
This is another attraction that you must not miss out on visiting when in Chikmagalur. It was built on the Bhadra river and the water from this dam is used for irrigation purposes. It is also used as a source of power by the villages that are located nearby. If you want to get a deeper understanding about the local life and people of this place, you can also explore the adjoining villages. And if you are lucky you might also get to spot wildlife on the banks of this beautiful Bhadra River.
