Madagadakere, Chikmagalur

Madagadakere is a large lake situated about 35KMs from Chikmagalur in Karnataka. This beautiful lake, is not frequented by tourists and hence the surroundings are clean and pristine. Visit to this lake early in the morning and you’ll have a chance to view a large variety of birds. The lake itself is surrounded by hills on 3 of its sides and makes for a pretty spectacular sight. The lake is situated pretty close to Ayyana kere, which is more popular.

We parked cars on lush green grass fields beside the lake. I was told that all these fields get filled with water during the monsoons. Boy, wouldn’t that be a sight to behold… 🙂
