Sivasamudram & Talakad




Sivasamudram & Talakad [Dec 2008]
Genre: One day trip




Distance From Bangalore: 140 kms

Reaching the place
Car, Bike (if you’ve a good one), Hire a cab, KSRTC
Ø Via Mysore Road. Will be taking a deviation in between post which roads are pathetic

Duration – 3 hours by cab

Water Falls at SivasamudramBharachukki
Gaganachukki
You could get into the water at Bharachukki, but not at Gaganachukki

At Talakad
Banks of the river Cauvery which is as good as a beach. You’ll be surprised to see the sort of sand which definitely will remind you of a beach!
Nearby, there is a temple that’s low lying and gets covered with the sand which as per the myth is a curse. The authorities try to excavate it, but each time the sand properly covers it again! Read more about it from the links. Interesting J

Other interesting factsIt’s a pretty remote area, a village by all means
Road-side vendors there sell refreshments. My personal choice: Tender coconut water and that is the best after the steep climb of steps back after you visit Bharachukki

  1. We went during rainy season and the rush of water was too much. Even at talkad the park nearby had been flooded and the boating was been done in the park!!!!
