Mysuru: Dhanushkoti waterfall popular as Chunchanakatte falls in K R Nagar taluk is back to life. Courtesy the incessant rains in the catchment area of Harangi dam and the release of over 20,000 cusecs of water from dam to Cauvery river.

It’s a sight to behold this waterfall, near Srirama Temple. Water is falling from the height of 40 feet and one can imagine the force at which it’s roaring like a milky formation, attracting tourists and visitors alike from various places.

During the previous year, the river had reached its brim in the month of June itself. This year, the delay in seasonal rain had almost cast its dark spell. But the copious rain being received in the catchment area of Cauvery has brought the waterfall back to life again.

The tourists especially youth rushing to capture the water cascade in all its glory has become a common sight. The number of tourists visiting the falls even after dusk, is a cause of worry. If the high mast lights focusing the river is installed, it will not just light up the area, but also acts like illumination of the falls.

Chandrashekar Assistant Executive Engineer Harangi Sub- division, K R Nagar told Mysooru News “The river is flowing at dangerous level due to the increase in rain and the release of water from Harangi dam. The people should stay away from the water”.

Sa Ra Mahesh K R Nagar MLA and former tourism minister had initiated various development works at the cost of Rs 10 crore, keeping the waterfall and Sri Rama Temple as central to development.
