Default Gaganachukki Falls - Sep 2007

Hi folks - how is Gaganachukki falls this time (Sep 2007)?
Good amt of water, enough to make a trip from Bangalore worthwhile?

Thanks

Ravi

I think its right time to go.
Volume of water flowing will be good for another month or so.
Cheers

From Bangalore: 140 km, There are 2 routes.

a) Take Mysore Road, before Mandya, take diversion from Maddur and drive straight towards Malavalli. After Malavalli, speak to locals and they can guide you correctly. One could also return via the same route. This route has good roads and one can enjoy the new Bangalore-Mysore Expressway too.

b) Alternatively, take the National Highway that passes through Kanakapura. Drive straight up to Malavalli and then ask any local villager for directions. They will know. (This is the route to reach Bheemeshwari Fishing Resort).
