About Balmuri Falls in Mysore

Featured in several Kannada films, Balmuri Falls is a man-made cascade on the Cauvery River. This 6-feet-tall waterfall is created by check-dam on the river. Flanked by coconut palms and green scenery, Balmuri Waterfalls is a popular picnic spot for people from Mysore and Bangalore.

Located a few minutes’ drive from the city of Mysore, Balmuri Falls is an ideal spot for a picnic with family or friends. Its name 'Balmuri' translates to 'to curve right' in the local language. It is because of the river bends to the right at this spot in Srirangapatna. The check-dam over the falls runs across for about 100 meters, the width of the Cauvery River, and forms a beautiful sheet of water only 6 feet high. Visitors can enjoy a walk on the dam due to the steady flow of ankle-deep water. Another way to enjoy the waterfalls is to take a relaxing dip in the water.

Balmuri Falls offers a beautiful view of the river which runs through greenery and is located away from the hubbub of city life. People living in cities like Mysore or Bangalore love to visit this place for a great one-day picnic. Balmuri Falls is one of the best day trips from Bangalore. You will be able to enjoy the beautiful view and also cool off by taking a dip in the water.

Balmuri and Edmuri Waterfalls are located nearby. Usually less crowded than Balmuri, Edmuri Falls are just 1 kilometer downstream of the river. The best time to visit Balmuri Falls is from March to August during the hot weather. The water level is safe for taking a dip during this time so visitors should be able to escape the heat. In summer months, the locals also offer fun boat rides which are really rewarding.

Colonel Bailey’s Dungeon, Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, Daria Daulat Bagh, and Brindavan Gardens are other interesting attractions to visit nearby in Srirangapatna.

    Piyush's 3 days trip to Mysore

    My trip was very good and stay was the best part of it.. thanks to the travel agent for suggesting the hotel..but a bit disappointed with the cab driver service. Driver din have any idea of itenery and at the end we had to plan our day outing. There was a communication gap between agent and cab driver.

    Ankita's 6 days trip to Mysore

    The overall trip experience was good. Everything went as per plan. But as a first time visitor I have a few suggestions that can be looked into. 1. It would be great if you can include timings to visit places in itinerary. We missed a few places just because they were closed when we went there. Like temple in mysore - we went there at 1 and we couldn't visit it as we did not know that temple remains closed from 12 noon to 4 pm. We couldn't wait also as we had many other places to visit. We couldn't visit dubare elephant camp in coorg due to same reason. 2.Also it would be great if as a travel planner you could suggest the nearest airport or railway station so that people can consider it while booking tickets. Like in my case I did not know that Coimbatore is the nearest airport from ooty. I booked return tickets from Banglore Airport which is 300kms away from ooty and ended up traveling almost for whole day. 3. This is something specific to hotels booked in mysore n ooty. The hotel given in mysore was good but it was away from market area in industrial area. It would be good if you can provide review of these kind to customers so that we can think of changing the hotel or telling you to book something near the market area as per our convenience. Also the berry hill resort in ooty was on top of a hill where the roads were in bad condition , the care taker could not speak/understand hindi, lights were not working, door bell connections were not there. Badly maintained resort it is! The only positive point about it is the location. So before suggesting it to someone else please give a thought on it. All the places are beautiful and well maintained. In mysore the mysore palace and Vrindavan garden is wonderful. In coorg the tebatian monetary is amazing to visit. Ooty is such a scenic place that u can't take your eye off. Everything you see is beautiful. Especially doddabetta peak and pykara boat house i liked the most
