How to reach – Straight on to Kanakapura road, 35 Kms ahead from Valley School(I suppose regular birders know where is Valley School). Location: Here. Other places you can see in the “Place” Tab of this page.

A word of caution: My day didn’t end well, while coming I saw a clean death on Kanakapura road. I was in bus and the man’s head was in pieces. Please wear helmet and take care of overtaking buses.

Back to the lake, its a big beautiful lake which offers a variety of birds, bugs and butterflies. Here are some of the pictures:
