Trekking is only available through the Jungle Resorts Packages. There's no provision to hire a guide or trek by yourself. Best you can do is drive upto the Anjaneya Teple and Muthathi River. And the (Read More)Muthathi River is not a very pleasing spot to be in. The river bank is a trash can with human poop and even a sack of human hair(probably thrown away by the local barber). The drive upto Muthathi after the Forest Officer's checkpost is very pleasing though. We saw a couple of herds of deer, boars and peacocks. Unfortunately the drive doesn't end in the same pleasing manner at Muthathi

We went to Bheemeshwari in Nov 2018, and were quite disappointed, but that could be because we had wrong expectations. So setting things straight. :) This is a very popular place for the locals nearb (Read More)y, and on the holidays, a lot of people come here with families to have a picnic by the riverside. Which means that it's quite crowded. Most people also litter a lot, which means you will, unfortunately, see a lot of plastic etc lying around everywhere near the river. We ultimately found a nice-ish spot after walking for 15 mins away from the crowd, but then there were a LOT of monkeys here, all around us, threatening to take our food. We had to be extremely careful and vigilant with our food etc.

We went to Bheemeshwari today, a small village located at a distance of around 120 km from Bangalore. Despite having a clean Cauvery river flowing alongside, the bank of this place was severely litte (Read More)red by people coming here to picnic. We had to walk a little to find out a spot that was clean enough to set up the tent. However, with beautiful fauna and greenery around, it was totally worth spending a day there!
