Overview

Meandering through the woody landscape amidst the forests of Karnataka is the Cauvery - the most majestic and sacred river of South India. The river offers both adventure and opportunity for nature lovers. Nestled along this mighty river is the Bheemeshwari Fishing Camp, world-renowned as home to the great 'Mahseer' - the finest & the largest tropical sporting fish known to man. Tucked away from the milling crowds, yet close enough for you to reach, this camp offers a slice of nature that is entirely unique, one in which you can totally feel free.

The best time to visit is just after the monsoon, between August and February, when the river is swollen and the forest and the surroundings are rich with green vegetation. This time is ideal for bird watchers too, as river terns, fishing eagles, wood peckers, king fishers, and plenty of other species flock here in large numbers. However, at other times water recedes to reveal wide sand banks where you could laze in the evenings or wade in the many lagoons created by the ebbing water. Summers (March - June) can be very warm, especially in the afternoons.

The Stay

Rooms:

In keeping with Jungle Lodges eco tourism philosophy, the Camp consists of just eight luxurious ethnic log-huts on stilts, blending beautifully with the jungle behind. On the riverbank are also eight well-furnished tented cottages (twin-bedded with attached bathrooms) for those who prefer a more closer-to-nature experience.They also have now 2 luxurious Cottages.

Activities

JLR's Bheemeshwari Fishing Camp is a perfect base for anglers in pursuit of the Mighty one. The fishing season here is during the months of November, December, January and February. Guests are provided with a local guide or 'gillie' for every two visitors. Gillies help anglers with their knowledge of the waters and are experienced fishermen themselves. They also are adept at using the coracle boats (native, circular boats made out of buffalo hide) and can move guests from place to place in the waters. JLR provides the coracles to cross the river and also to help with the landing of fish.

Complete body rejuvenation therapies of the ancient Indian health care system - "Ayurveda" are available in our Ayurveda Hut . It is run by KOTTAKKAL ARYAVAIDYA SALA ( The pioneers in Ayurveda ) dealers using their medicines and systems and all the therapies performed by well trained male/female therapists.

Wildlife

Mammals that are spotted around the Camp include leopard, elephants, wild pigs, sambar, spotted deers, the highly endangered grizzled giant squirrel, Malabar giant squirrel and jackals.

Reptiles that can be sighted are marsh crocodile, turtles (Leith's Soft Shelled Turtle, an endemic species is found in these waters), chameleon, python, cobra, russell's viper and banded krait. However, the Mahseer fish is the main attraction of the waters of River Cauvery

Over 200 species of birds have been identified around the camp. Among the water-based birds, you can spot the grey-headed fishing eagle, spot billed duck, small pied kingfisher, black-bellied river tern, osprey, and many more. There are also a number of rare land-based birds such as the honey buzzard, tawny eagle, pied crested cuckoo, etc.

Adventure package
Let's get wild!
Feel the rush of adrenalin at the first-ever adventure multiplex at Jungles Lodges and Resorts, Bheemeshwari, situated on the pristine banks of the river Cauvery. Besides, it's a great chance to commune with pure nature and take in the wilderness around you. Take back more than just great memories! Take back a whole new experience!

The Inca Walk [Burma Loops]
The idea of constructing rope bridges to cross high mountains occurred to the ancient Incas many hundred years ago. But for people like us today, whose walk is confined to walking across shopping malls, the walk across the rope bridge is a truly shaky experience. It takes more than bravery to traverse the swaying rope bridge. It takes guts! 

The Commando Drop [Zip-Line]
The practice of dropping commandos by choppers in mission-critical areas is not new. They do it well because; they are trained to do it. But for us urban dwellers, the slide down a wildly swaying rope, forty feet above the ground, will not bring out fear. It will bring out the lord's name!  

The Mad Monkey Crawl [Parallel Walk]
Invented by our ancestors, over hundreds of years ago, to cross over from remote hilly villages to civilization, the simple two-rope bridge has done more than just connecting people. It has brought together civilisations. But for us people more accustomed to walking the pavements, the trip across the rope won't evoke amity. It will evoke fear.  


Kayaking
There are not too many things in the world that can evoke pure fear. But one of the things that can upset anyone's fear quotient is Kayaking. Imagine the experience as you hurtle down roaring rapids at break-neck speed and snaking through rocks and boulders. For some of us who are only used to snaking through rush-hour traffic, it's another kind of a rush!
