Sharavati Valley of Western Ghats in Shimoga district, is an heaven for nature lovers, for many obvious reasons, mountains of western ghats lie vast as far as eyes can see, pristine forests which covers the sky which now a days can be seen in very few nature trials. here lies the jewel of jungle Bheemeshwara or Bheemalingeshwara. Mythological story goes like, the Shiva Linga was established by Bheema of Pandavas during Agnaatavasa (living in hiding). There is waterfall next to the temple called Bheemeshwara falls. And same mythological story says that the waterfall formed when Arjuna used his arrow to extract water from the rocks. water in this falls never dries out through out the year.
The lush green forests, blue skies as far as the eyes can see, and silence so resounding that you can hear your own breath, surely invites any heart wanting to loose itself in the lap of nature….during this trial you will walk along the vast paddy fields, crossing many hills whose peak offers beautiful view of valley.
