Mekedatu, a tourist spot near Bangalore


This article gives the information about Mekedatu, one of tourist spot in Bangalore

This is a description of our trip and Mekedatu Sangam. Mekedatu means Goats Leap. Stones are too close to, even if the goat can jump between. Sangam was a meeting place of rivers and Arkavathy Cauvery and the other mythical river that is no longer visible.

It is 95 km from Bangalore. Public transport is appalling, but it is available. We began at 08:00 Friday, March 21, 2008. It was drizzling early 22morning and the weather was cold and lazy. Our journey began by RT Nagar, Bangalore. We went from Brigade Road, Bannerghatta Road and Kanakapura greatly advanced Road, then to Sangam. Sangam is about 35 miles Kanakapura. The roads are not very good. Patch work undertaken. We arrived at Sangam at 11:00. If the tea the only restaurant - Coconut. Parked our car inside the complex of restaurants and went to the Sangam. There were lots of monkeys wandering around Coconut Tree. Kids need to see old, young, big, small, jumping around.

Approaching Sangam, has hosted a large red sign warning us. Beware of crocodiles and underlying. Please avoid swimming and advised us to gather the opinions of local residents. Those who have neglected this warning was not returned alive.

Mekedatu are about 3-4 km from Sangam. The road is rocky and winding. We could have a glimpse of the forest and the Rocky River. The river becomes narrower and deeper than we were headed Mekedatu. Mekedatu, Sangam minutes we arrived at the place. Then it was a trip down. Little has been carved into the rock there. But they are closer than we descended. The surrounding rocks were slippery and smooth. To get a clear view of the river, we had to climb over the rocks. The river ran with all his might. The scene was extremely exotic. We have begun to rise. On our road, was a family holding their shoes in a plastic bag and asked the monkeys who tried to snatch the bag..

Coconut tree had lunch and went back to the Sangam. Child playing in the river and other swim and had a gala time for the evening. Our return journey began 16:00 and we were far from the Sangam in Bangalore, 21 (thanks to the bizarre traffic in Bangalore)

In fact, it is a beautiful place to visit with family and friends. A place for your excursion to visit in Karnataka, India. It is a kind of picnic usually during the winter season when the water recedes. Those who love adventure can try for trekking, climbing with ropes. I do not know if this is allowed here by the authorities. You need to check. It would be desirable to be careful when walking on rock and not to venture too far on the edges. One thing I did not like was that the place is full of plastic and broken bottles of alcohol. Be sure to carry food and water that are not easily accessible. Few shops around the load Sangam more for water and drinks. It is also advisable to leave before nightfall

Nearby places to visit include Chunchi falls, Muthathi village in Cauvery Wildlife Sanctuary, Galibore fishing camp and Jungle Lodges at Bheemeshwari.
