The Flying Bandits - Ride to Harangi Backwaters

in #travel5 years ago

Helloo Steemers,

Been awhile since i've been alive in this part of the internet :P cutting to the chase... Our next journey was towards Harangi dam and backwaters which is situated near Hudgur village, Somwarpet taluk (Kodagu district) in the Indian state of Karnataka and 168 km away from Mangaluru.

The reservoir is formed by a masonry dam built across the river Harangi, a tributary of the Kaveri. The dam is located about 9 km away from the heart of Kushalnagar town.
