A Perfect Hideout from Bangalore

Rising from Thalacauvery in the hills of Coorg, meandering through valleys and bouncing over jagged rocks, River Cauvery reaches the fringes of Bangalore at a beatific spot - Bheemeshwari. An idyllic getaway for nature enthusiast, Bheemeshwari is scented with raw adventure.

Escape from the noisy humdrum of city life and cuddle up in the jungle loges of Bheemeshwari. Situated on the banks of the river, these cosy lodges make for that perfect hideout. Thrillophilia has some fabulous travel packages to Bheemeshwari that are sure to help you relax and rejuvenate.

After all, where else can you experience the pleasure of an ayurvedic massage while watching the river gently glide along its course? Or sit in the open woods and enjoy a meal while birds sing to you melodiously!

If history and caves interest you, then ensure you visit the three caves at the foothills of Baba Budan Giri that are believed to be sanctified by siddhas.

And for those who love waterfalls, Chikmagalur has that in abundance. The Gada Theertha, Nallikayi Theertha and Kamana Theertha waterfalls come crashing down the sides of Baba Budan Giri, offering a perfect performance for that nature lover in you!

Rope it up

It's one thing to relax in the jungle lodges or hang your feet in the waters while the river washes away your cares. And it's another to cross the river hanging high on ropes! Bring out the macho in you and resort to the craziest adventure sports in Bheemeshwari.

Belly crawl across the reptile infested waters of the Cauvery hanging high up on a rope, or zip line across the hills for the ultimate thrill in the air. For those who want to cross the heights with a little more support, check out the Burma Loops. There's nothing more exciting than walking on a tight rope, with two ropes for your hands to grab and a lively river roaring below!

Beckoning waters

Drive up the course of the Cauvery river, step into a raft or canoe and slide down to the camp spot in style. Just leave your inhibitions behind, get into the raft, and paddle your way down the river.

At times, you may simply drift calmly, and at others scream your heart out as the water plunges you down. That's the fun of white water rafting in Bheemeshwari!

Enriched with a lush green cover that supports a variety of wildlife, and bordered by the Cauvery, Basavana Betta is truly cradled by nature.

There's a lovely trek trail from Basavana Betta to Chellure Hill that winds around the hill, nearly parallel to the Cauvery.

A perfect double dhamaka! You get your share of the beauty of the river murmuring to you the secrets of nature, while the exotic animals of the jungle peep out of their natural habitat to give you those prized pictures.

After all, how often do you get to see a peacock dancing or an elephant teaching it's little one to find the right food?

One perfect way to escape from the mundane life of the city is to pitch tents and camp in Basavana Betta.

Light a campfire, get those large coffee mugs out and sleep under a star-spangled sky with nothing other than the jungle surrounding you. Wake up for a change to the warm glow of the sun on your face instead of the shrill doorbell of your milkman. And if you are lucky, you may have a visitor or two from the depth of the jungles; so let the camera roll!


If you are more of an action person, then explore the secrets of Basavana Betta on cycles. Mountain bike through the serpentine paths and blind hairpin bends, pass by deer, darters, grizzled giant squirrels and if you're lucky, a jackal too!
