  • Its Good place. In this place we can see only River project we cannot see other place and we cannot spend much more time there.  more »
  • Not everyone is allowed to go in. It's a walk towards the dam and it's tiring especially when it's during the day. The place looks beautiful with the river on a sunny day.  more »

  • Bhadra Reservoir. My experience was one of the best experience. Though water level was to the lowest point, but then too I was standing exactly behind dam wall, where water is stored at its maximum storage. (See pics) for more technical info google it and read Wikipedia. One will have view of Dam Gates once entered into dam premises. To have a look of back water, one has to take stairs approx 200 to 250 and reach View point. (See pic) To the right of view point, one has to get down on the other side and take walk to back water, where you can play in water. During monsoon season water level increases, from which you won't be able to step inside water. (See pics) Near to shore, one can have a view of tunnel which is use to supply water to near by places. (See pics) Do like it. If you find it good..!!
  • Visitors are not allowed inside. They can see from outside or take a walk along the pathway that leads to the side of the dam. I did not go along the pathway. Just took a pic from outside at the base of the dam.
  • Awesome place!! One will be mesmerized to see the beauty! Great infrastructure, great view point, and the best part is the place is clean, pure reservoir water! A must visit place to enjoy the scenic beauty!
  • Bhadra dam is one of the biggest dam among the state.It has storage capacity of water upto 186 feet from ground level & has capacity to produce 40MW of power,The water from the dam is released for agricultural purposes through right & left canals of the dam to various districts of the state.
  • The serene around this place is worth of life-experience​. You will witness for many wildlife animals and birds activities while boating in Bhadra dam backwater.

Where to stay in Shimoga

A major regional town and regular base of explorations, Shivamogga has a decent set of accommodations to cater to its guests. Lying mainly southwest of Shivamogga Town Railway Station, a set of hotels and guesthouses offers some upmarket, business-class options, as well as refreshingly simple lodgings designed for outdoor adventurers. Take a look at some places closer to the Tunga River if you want a little removal from the city, through most people are happy enough with the bit of instant green afforded by Gandhi Park in the middle of town.
