  • Nice and beautiful surroundings. It is lush green. The dam stores Tunga water. A potential tourist destination. Unfortunately not marketed or maintained. However drive on Dan road is amazing. A lush green surrounding take you different world. You can see beauty of Karnataka in these places.
  • Nice place.... Always having good Mountain the of water stored... But no tourist attractions... Needs to be Improved very much...
  • Dam stores the Tunga rivers water and helps the surrounding farmers in growing crops and there is a boating place in gajnur back water 2 km from gajnur dam only opened on Sunday and other government holidays
  • One of the beauty of Karnataka.... I love my Karnataka
  • Nice place for a one time visit. Enquire if the gates in the dam are open if you plan to walk down the road to get to the view point. If the gates are closed there is nothing much to see.

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.
