A must-visit place for nature lovers for people in and around Bangalore is the Shivanasamudra waterfalls and the surrounding areas. This place is ideal for photography enthusiasts, trekkers, bird watchers, or anyone looking for a weekend getaway not far from the city. We found a very easy access holiday stay-in just a few minutes drive from the river Kaveri and the waterfall, the place is also just a few meters away from the main road, it is called ChukkiMane, a lush green vast expanse. It is a nature-friendly stay-in where the food is just lip-smacking tasty, they serve pure vegetarian, one of the best that we ever tasted. Even the story behind the coming into existence of this place is quite inspiring. We went for bullock cart rides, bird watching, nature walks, visited the organic farm and so many other activities. But, remember, this place is an eco-friendly sustainable set-up exclusively aimed to let visitors feel the rural way of living and so do not expect luxurious hospitality treatments. You can stay in the rooms or if you wish to experience camping they have the facility pitching tents as well. We took the tents and it was awesome. The walk around the campus of this place itself is so refreshing and rejuvenated us in so many aspects. So, if you plan to take a break, plan to visit this place at least once. "Link Hidden"

Visit to this amazing waterfall is a must for People in and around Bangalore. You need to plan your visit carefully as there is lot of traffic jams during weekends. As we were returning to Bangalore, it got late & we were lucky to find a place called Hidden Campsite near channapatna. we stayed there at night. Its an awesome place literally hidden amidst 300 mango trees. Food offered by them was very tasty. They took us on a trek to a hill right in front of their campsite and it was rejuvenating & refreshing.
