MekeDatu/Sangama One day trip

We friends +Yogananda Jayashankar +Basavaraju Raju +madhusudan bandhakli while heading back to home in CAB felt exhausted from work thought we should plan for weekend trip. Decided to go Teamtrip2mekedatu. From Bengaluru Mekedatu is situated around 95 KM towards kanakapura on the banks of KAVERI river. As per villagers Mekedatu name came into existence as daily goats use to cross the river (meke – means goat and datu – means crossing in kannada ) it is also called as sangama (Fusion in kannada) rivers get merged in this place so called as sangama.
We started our journey on bike from bengaluru in the morning 7 AM from majestic towards kanakapura road. on the way we visited AOL -Art of living ashram. Took food items in kanakpura which is last place to get food items after that its difficult to get good food items. Took left turn towards sangama and reached around 10 AM.
Best place to hangout and play in the river we have spent most of the time in playing in river. Since water level is only 2-4 feet high we have done underwater exploration goggle's and respiratory pipe is required where you can see the fish touch your feet and you can feed them.
Meke datu falls 
There is a bus across the river which will take us to near by small falls (4 KM) must visit place.
By 3PM we headed back towards Bangalore on the way plucked out some lotus flowers from pond and visited beautiful AOL and reached back to bengaluru by 8 PM .

Shivana Samudra Trip


A beautiful trip to shivanasamudra with friends +aravind nikkam +Satish Sindagi +Pradeep Wali
Shivanasamudra falls is on the river kaveri. the island town divides the river into twin water falls as Gagana chukki and Bhara chukki.
First hydroelectric power station in asia was setup here in the year 1902.
 

We started our journey from rajaji nagar early morning in my car reached around 10AM after 2.5 hours of journey. Route to shivanasamudra is very scenic which passes by villages. First visited the gangana chukki since water force is too high not safe to swim.
