Balmuri falls is a small water cascade located at Srirangapatna in Karnataka. Though known as a waterfall, it is a human-made check dam over the Cauvery river, which allows the water to flow in a 6-foot cascade over the Cauvery. Green coconut palms and trees adorn the shores and the gushing cascade of water sparkle in the sun, which is why the spot is quite scenic where many song sequences in Kannada and a few Hindi films have been shot! Now, isn’t that inviting enough for all you photographers out there to spend a day out wading over the waters and capturing beautiful pictures!
It is at a quiet location on the outskirts of Mysore, and so it's also a perfect spot for a picnic with your family or friends. The name 'Balmuri' means 'to curve right' in the Kannada language, which relates to the right turn that the river takes at this spot in Srirangapatna. The check dam over the falls runs across the breadth of the Cauvery river and creates a beautiful cascade of water just 6 feet high. You can walk on the dam, and the water will run up to your ankles. Best way to enjoy the falls is to take a relaxing bath in the water.
