Situated in Kanakapura of Ramanagara district, Mekedatu is a site by a stretch of narrow, deep gorges through which the river Kaveri flows. 100km from Bangalore, Mekedatu is a perfect weekend getaway for nature lovers. Mekedatu means 'goat's leap' in Kannada and has interesting mythology behind this natural beauty. The interesting thing about the gorges is that the other side of the gorge is Tamil Nadu.
Mekedatu is a paradise for trekkers as there are many beautiful places to explore here. Biking is also popular here since the roads are almost barren leaving room for uninterrupted biking trips. Chunchi Falls are a must-visit here. Do note that the water currents in the gorges can get quite rough and it is recommended to not go swimming. So bask in the beauty of Mekedatu's adventure and historical side.
