Bheemeshwari Info

  • State: Karnataka
  • Famous for/as: Waterfront
Bheemeshwari is a small town in Mandya district of Karnataka. It is located between the Shivanasamudra Falls and Mekedatu Falls on River Cauvery. It is about 100 km from the city of Bangalore. 

Bheemeshwari is popular for its eco-tourism initiatives and is a natural habitat for the mahseer fish found in the Cauvery. Mahseer is believed to be one of the best game fishes. Moreover, there are lush forests surrounding this place, home to a number of wild animals such as elephants, monkeys, wild boars, jackals, otters, crocodiles and leopards. A number of bird species such as kingfisher, ibis, herons and cormorants are also found in these forests.

Things to do in Bheemeshwari

Bheemeshwari has emerged as a popular fishing hub because it lies on the banks of the Cauvery River. In fact, it is also referred to as the ‘Angler’s Paradise’. A number of fishing camps have been developed here where professional and amateur anglers can catch mahseer.

These camps offer tents with essential facilities including mosquito nets, cots and bathing facilities. Food is also served in dining halls, which are usually open air. 

Besides fishing, Bheemeshwari is also a great place for trekking and boating. Tourists can participate in adventure activities like river rafting on the Cauvery, enjoy a coracle ride, take a nature walk to just sit back and indulge in bird watching.
There are a number of attractions around Bheemeshwari such as Doddamkali and Galibore. Doddamkali is at a distance of just 7 km from Bheemeshwari. Located deep in the forest, it is completely isolated and is ideal for camping. Galibore, on the other hand, is 16 km away from Bheemeshwari. This place is also a natural habitat for fish and attracts large number of anglers.

The other places to visit around Bheemeshwari include Mekedatu, Sangam and Kokrebellur Pelicanry. Mekedatu till date has many undiscovered regions and therefore, attracts hordes of tourists for its natural beauty. 

Sangam is the confluence of the Cauvery and Arakavathi rivers. It is one of the most popular and scenic picnic spots in Bheemeshwari. Elephants, deer and tigers can also be spotted in this area. Kokrebellur Pelicanry is a small village in Bheemeshwari, which is home to a number of local and migratory birds ranging from pelicans to painted storks.

During the monsoon months of June, July and August, Bheemeshwari comes alive and it is the ideal time for river rafting. However, the best time to visit Bheemeshwari is between September and February, when the weather is pleasant and tourists can head out. Bird watchers are in for a treat as fishing eagles, kingfishers and plenty of others species flock to the camp during this time. Between March and June, it gets really hot and it is advisable not to visit Bheemeshwari during this season.
