Long Weekends are like breathers between a high-intensity workout. But when you work back to back and the desire to escape the mundane reality of life crosses the threshold, the destinations within the radius of your city come to the rescue. One such destination is Shivanasamudra, which is a small city in the Mandya District (Karnataka). Located at a distance of 140 km from Bangalore, this waterfall is one of the massive waterfalls in southern India. Hopping, skipping and jumping over the ravines of the Deccan Plateau, the water of the Cauvery River divides into two and drops off in form of Gaganchukki and Bharachukki waterfalls. A trip to Shivanasamudra can also be clubbed with a visit to the town submerged in the sand- Talakadu.
How to Reach (From Bangalore)
There are direct trains to Mysore (nearest railway station) from Bangalore. Shivanasamudra is 81km from Mysore.
