  • This place is monumental, you will be damn surprised if you see like this for first time. After the confluence(cauvery & Arkavathi) river turns into one and it flows further, the 400 to 500 metre stre...  more »
  • We decided to visit Mekedatu at around 10:00 am in the morning and started at 12 and reached by 3 on 10th Oct 2016. We had nice lunch @ Gokul, Kanakapura and from there to Sangama. Road is curvey but ...  more »
  • As already mentioned by others in this blog , this place is risky to swim and so take care. New things I found : 1. Good place to visit with family and kids . Even during less monsoon rain, water is w...  more »

  • Loved to see water forcing it's way through the rocks. Nature displaying beauty at its forceful best., Clearly visible on the rocks which appear pearced at a lot of places by water over the centuries. Liked to cross a little distance in sangam in small boat(dongi) to travel approximately 5 kilometers reaching this scenic beauty.
  • This place is after the sangam junction which is the meeting place of kaveri and arkavathi river it flows and forms a falls at mekedatu. During summers there is very less water but its a treat to visit during monsoons. Google maps shows a very long route to mekedatu. You can cut it shorter by visiting sangam from there take a boat to the other side where there are buses that will take you to mekedatu it is hardly 5kms after crossing the river.
  • At Mekedaatu, the river Kaveri runs through a deep, narrow ravine of hard granite rock. It is said that a goat could leap over it, giving the falls the name Goat's Leap. It is about 3.5 kilometers downstream from Sangam where river Arkavati merges with Kaveri.
  • Very nice place to visit along with sangama. Kids loved it. Have to be very careful while climbing over the small peak to see the gorge. Government organised bus runs from sangama to mekadattu and costs 60 per person
  • Was there in July. Enough water to keep it interesting. You can drive down to Sangam. Then a boat ride to other side. Then an 15 min bumpy shuttle bus ride to mekadatu. There is a view point. But the staff let you down the strairs if they think its safe (maybe not during monsoon)
