Top Places To Visit in Mekedatu 1 Spots

Cauvery River, Kanakapura
This is a place where the Cauvery River meets the Arkavati River forming a narrow ravine and also a deep gorge. This place is mainly known for its extreme natural beauty and also for the thrilling experience you can enjoy out here. You can park your vehicle and cross the river on foot only but you should be careful of the rough rocks here. The rocks b2ecome really slippery at times especially the monsoons. The river water has high current and taking the help of locales would be a veru wise decesion.
