Bheemeshwari in Mandya district is an ideal place not only for the wildlife but also for people on a holiday spree.

The sparkling blue waters of Cauvery wind through rocks and ravines and fall off the Deccan Plateau to form the Twin Falls of Barachukki and Gaganachukki. About 35 Kms downstream is yet another set of falls called Mekedatu (Goat's Leap). Lying between these breathtaking cascades is Bheemeshwari.

It is a perfect picnic spot, where nature has created a natural habitat for the Mahseer fish and variety of exciting animals. The lush forest sheltered by steep valley and scattered by little streams, invite large groups of animals and birds.

Fauna :
One can see herds of elephants amongst thick trees. Deer springing in the air, wild boars, monkeys, jackals, crocodiles, otter and leopards and many other animals inhabit the place.

There are plenty of birds too. Heron, ibis, cormorant, kingfishers have all made their home here.
