Talakaveri - Bhagamandala

Story continued from Trip to Nagarahole - Coorg -> Drive into Nagarahole -> Chilligeri Estate -> Irpu, The Falls -> Waynad (Kuruva, Tirunelli)

Sunday Morning:

Got up around 7AM and got ready and had break fast at the restaurant. Started to Talakaveri by 10AM. It's 42 KM from Madikeri and the scenic beauty during the travel is amazing. It doubles during the rains. Both sides of road you can see coffee and spice plantations. Roads are very good.

We reached Bhagamandala in less than an hour and visited Bhagandeshwara temple. There is a triveni sangama at this place. Kaveri, Kannike and Sub terranian Sujyoti (Gupta Nadi) meet here. Due to rains again, we could not get into waters.


Road after Bhagamandala towards Talakaveri becomes very curvy and ghat section begins. I loved driving in that road too. As we drove up the hill and altitude increased, we could see substantial difference in climatic conditions. We could witness mind blowing mist at that altitude and enjoyed a lot. You can also see the video below and enjoy the same. We could hardly see anything at a distance more than 10 feet. We offered pooja to Lordess Kaveri, visited Shiva temple up hill and started back. They have improved a lot in Talakaveri.
