Shivasamudram, which is situated about 60km east of Mysore, is famous for twin waterfalls of Gaganachukki and Barachukki. India’s first hydroelectric project was established in Shivasamudram in 1902. It is an ideal location for nature lovers who look for peaceful places to find mental solace. At Hebbani village (situated a few kilometres away from Shivasamudram), the lovely Hatherell couple and their 10 dogs operate the peaceful Georgia Sunshine Village. It is a family getaway that offers comfortable accommodation in cosy bungalows with other luxuries including delicious homemade food and a sparkling swimming pool. You can also request Treks and fishing trips. Frequent bus service is available from Mysore to Malavalli (14km away). This one hour journey costs Rs. 30. You can also contact the Hatherells in advance to arrange an autorickshaw pickup for you at a charge of Rs. 150.
