Tungabhadra dam is in Hospet and you can reach there by using the frequent bus service. You will have to walk up to the topmost point from where you get a clear view of the dam and reservoir. The walk is very pleasant specially in the morning. The nearby garden is nicely maintained although smaller in size than most of... More

Normal Garden with Dancing fountains. One can visit if he enjoys strolling in garden. We could see the reservoir though the gates of dam were closed.

The bus took the NH-4 to Tumkur via Jalahalli Cross... More

Based on feedback from a friend, we decided to pay the dam a visit before we returned to Bangalore. We started after breakfast and it was a 1 km walk from the security post to the dam. A pleasant walk in the morning (around 10 am in December). The dam was quite usual. Huge in its expanse. And they never... More
