Lose yourself in the wild
Kickstart your 7.5-km mesmerizing circuitous walk in the wild at Bheemeshwari from the elephant camp. Lose yourself to the beauty of its wilderness for your trek trail at Bheemeshwari runs nearly parallel to the Cauvery most of the way. So while you walk through the thickets sharpening your senses to spot as many animals and birds as you can here, the river gives you company murmuring from the foothills all the way!
It’s one to enjoy the wilderness of Bheemeshwari during the day, either trekking or mountain biking. It’s another to camp in the jungles under a star-spangled sky and walk through the serpentine trek paths to sight the nightlife of Bheemeshwari under the silvery moonlight seeping through the leaves. While jackals may cross your path unawares, glimpse nocturnal creatures quenching their thirst along the river and bats fly swishing past your ear as you deftly duck them and walk through the wild in Bheemeshwari at night.
More to Bheemeshwari’s wild beauty
If just a walk in the wild at Bheemeshwari isn’t enough to satiate your hunger for adventure, then you should go white water rafting in the Cauvery for nature to reveal some of its exotic secrets only for your eyes!
