Travel to Bheemeshwari Fishing Camp for Burma Loops, Zip Line, Parallel Walks, Kayaking and More
BHEEMESHWARI : FISHING CAMP
Meandering through the woody landscape amidst the forests of Karnataka is the Cauvery – the most majestic and sacred river of South India. The river offers both adventure and opportunity for nature lovers. Nestled along this mighty river is the Bheemeshwari Adventure and Nature Camp, world-renowned as home to the great ‘Mahseer’ – the finest & the largest tropical sporting fish known to man. Tucked away from the milling crowds, yet close enough for you to reach, this camp offers a slice of nature that is entirely unique, one in which you can totally feel free!
In keeping with Jungle Lodges eco tourism philosophy, the Camp, overlooking the River Cauvery consists of just eight luxurious ethnic log-huts on stilts, blending beautifully with the jungle behind. On the riverbank are also eight well-furnished tented cottages (twin-bedded with attached bathrooms) for those who prefer a more closer-to-nature experience.We also have now 2 luxurious Cottages.
The best time to visit is just after the monsoon, between August and February, when the river is swollen and the forest and the surroundings are rich with green vegetation. This time is ideal for bird watchers too, as river terns, fishing eagles, wood peckers, king fishers, and plenty of other species flock here in large numbers. However, at other times water recedes to reveal wide sand banks where you could laze in the evenings or wade in the many lagoons created by the ebbing water. Summers (March – June) can be very warm, especially in the afternoons.

Let’s get wild!
Feel the rush of adrenalin at the first-ever adventure multiplex at Jungles Lodges and Resorts, Bheemeshwari, situated on the pristine banks of the river Cauvery. Besides, it’s a great chance to commune with pure nature and take in the wilderness around you. Take back more than just great memories! Take back a whole new experience!
The Inca Walk [Burma Loops]
The idea of constructing rope bridges to cross high mountains occurred to the ancient Incas many hundred years ago. But for people like us today, whose walk is confined to walking across shopping malls, the walk across the rope bridge is a truly shaky experience. It takes more than bravery to traverse the swaying rope bridge. It takes guts!
The Commando Drop [Zip-Line]
The practice of dropping commandos by choppers in mission-critical areas is not new. They do it well because; they are trained to do it. But for us urban dwellers, the slide down a wildly swaying rope, forty feet above the ground, will not bring out fear. It will bring out the lord’s name!
Invented by our ancestors, over hundreds of years ago, to cross over from remote hilly villages to civilization, the simple two-rope bridge has done more than just connecting people. It has brought together civilisations. But for us people more accustomed to walking the pavements, the trip across the rope won’t evoke amity. It will evoke fear.
There are not too many things in the world that can evoke pure fear. But one of the things that can upset anyone’s fear quotient is Kayaking. Imagine the experience as you hurtle down roaring rapids at break-neck speed and snaking through rocks and boulders. For some of us who are only used to snaking through rush-hour traffic, it’s another kind of a rush!
