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.

      Very good hotels provided and good plan made for the trip. However can driver took override of the plan and made the plan during visit. He was ok but bit lasy and did not wanted to show the places. Everyday started late in morning that led to shortage of time and connoor trip was completely missed out. Overall trip was good but could have been better. Hotel locations was awesome

      We had travelled to Coorg and Mysore for 3 nights and 4 days holiday in May 2019. We thank Travel Triangle and Chill Memories for delivering on the promise of a great stay and tour. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and were pleased with the arrangements. Keep up the good work ,team Travel Triangle. The best part of our holiday was our stay at Coorg Jungle Camp Backwater resorts at Kushalnagar. It was a really refreshing and tranquil place to spend some quality time.

    • Trip to Karnataka

      Inspire Holidays agent has given good service but the follow up is not done smoothly. The back-end advance booking is done but missed on giving a payment screenshot to the hotel staff or informing us which lead to little uncomfortable situation. Communication through phone by the agent or mail saying that we have paid so and so advance will help in future. The room booking was not confirmed and we had to wait and discuss with the hotel staff for at least 40 mins at 12 AM midnight with a kid. The agent is good but the process dint go smooth. About travel triangle-- The agent has called few times till we registered and done the advance payment. Later there was no followup and no response for messages. but timely he sent the invoices for balance payments. when called for some information, his response is, " ok, you need to check this with the agency which is dealing with the hotel booking". Initially to gain the confidence, they say you can call me anytime on my number if you have any issues I'll help. but when called for some information, no answer.

      Overall trip was very good. However, below 2 points for improvement: 1. Driver was very good. However, I requested Hindi Speaking driver. Driver was weak in Hindi and English. Hence, faced communication problems couple of times. 2. Had last minutes issues in hotel bookings and availability. Better if agent can forward hotel booking confirmation email to customer, this is to maintain transpancy and better communication Finally, thanks for arranging trip for me.
