Travellers 'must visit' Balmuri Falls, one of the most beautiful picnic spots of the town, on the way to Srirangapatna. This man-made reservoir is built across the River Cauvery and is the most suitable place for tourists who wish to lounge around in water. The ideal time to visit this waterfall is during the winter season as the water level is comparatively high then and tourists can enjoy bathing and playing in the open air.
Though not a huge waterfall, it is still thronged by many tourists coming from Mysore, which is just 15 km away. It is the preferred site of many South Indian directors as many Kannada movies have been filmed here.
