Bheemeshwari Adventure & Nature Camp
A perfect place to do all adventurous activities...
Bheemeshwari Adventure & Nature Camp - Bheemeshwari Adventure & Nature Camp is within your reach. However, we can assure you it is completely out of the reach of the crowd and commotion of city life. If you want to enjoy the fascinating combination of nature and adventure with peace and serenity, come to this Adventure & Nature Camp nestled along the Cauvery, the most majestic and sacred river of South India. All you need to do is to take a 100-km drive from Bangalore via Kanakapura.
AT Bheemeshwari Adventure & Nature Camp, you can hang out with more than 200 species of birds, such as the gray-headed fish eagle, pied crested cuckoo, darter, etc. You can even spot deer, jackals, the highly endangered grizzled giant squirrel, the leopards and elephants there.
Also, if there is one thing that has been attracting people to the camp over the years, it is the mighty mahseer, one of the largest fresh water fish in the region. Some have even landed 100 lb. (and heavier) mahseer in this stretch of the river.
River-Based Activities: Revitalize yourself by spending time with the refreshing Cauvery. Dip your feet in the pristine waters and you can feel the travails of city life fading away. Accompanied by guides, you can try a hand at joy fishing. Or, just ride down the Cauvery in a coracle and let the serenity and breathtaking natural views overpower your mind and thoughts.
You can get the adrenalin flowing with the thrills of river rafting on the Cauvery during the monsoon season (mid-June to September).
Land-Based Activities: Take your excitement to the next level by trekking around the Basavana Betta. The 6-hour trek will offer you a panoramic view of the Cauvery flowing through the valley below. You can also opt for short-distance treks early in the mornings.
The Cauvery Wildlife Sanctuary, with its rocks and hilly terrain, welcomes you to enjoy treks within its preserve.Corporate houses can carry out team-building exercises here, as well. Camping under the star-spangled skies is truly an unforgettable experience that you will cherish forever. Additionally, you can spend time chatting by the warmth of the campfire and settle down on the sandy riverbank until the barbecue gets done.
The Inca Walk [Burma Loops]
The idea of constructing rope bridges to cross high mountains occurred to the ancient Incas many hundreds of years ago. But for people like us today, whose walks are 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. Such men and women 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 adventurer in anyone!
The Mad Monkey Crawl [Parallel Walk]
Invented by our ancestors, 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 we who are more accustomed to walking on pavement, the trip across the rope won't evoke amity. It will evoke fear.
Not too many people are lucky enough to explore the mind-sizzling back-roads of the glorious Western Ghats. The experience is chocked full of hair-raising, hair pin bends; zero visibility; unscrupulous weather; and of course, a sore back. But for most of us who are adept it will be one of the most exhilarating rides of your life.
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 snake 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!
If you want to enjoy nature at its best at Bheemeshwari Adventure & Nature Camp, plan your vacation during the monsoon months of June, July and August. The lush green forest and the Cauvery River allow you to watch and become bemused with nature unfurling it unspoiled beauty before your eyes. At other times of the year, water recedes to reveal wide sand banks, where you could lay back and rejuvenate yourself in the evenings.
The best time to visit the camp is between September and February. This is also the ideal time for bird watchers as river terns, fishing eagles, king-fishers, and plenty of others species flock here. Summers (March-June) are usually very warm, especially in the afternoons.
The Camp overlooking the Cauvery River is comprised of eight ethnic log-huts or suites blending beautifully with the jungles behind. You can also settle down in any of the ten well-furnished tented cottages (twin-bedded with attached bathrooms) on the riverbank for a more closer-to-nature ambience.
The Camp takes pride in its Gol Ghar (open sided, circular gazebo), an exclusive dining area for guests. There is also a lot of open campus also has a lot of open area, with a tumbling net and machan for the leisure of kids and adults. For those who prefer to spend time alone, there are hammocks fixed outside each tent and hut, where one could read a book to while away times or even fall asleep.
Spoil yourself with Ayurvedic body rejuvenation therapy available in the Ayurvedic Hut managed by ‘Kottakal Ayurvaidya Sala,’ one of the pioneers in Ayurveda.
Break free from your regular diet to indulge in a sumptuous buffet of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine in an open sided dining area, the Gol Ghar. Lunch after you check in, tea in the evening, snacks around a campfire, dinner in the Gol Ghar, tea at dawn and a breakfast here you will get everything you could ever want in a vacation.
