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.
