How to get there:

  • Nearest Airport: There are no airports in the surrounding areas. The airport is getting constructed in Shimoga. Air travelers have to make use of one of Mangalore, Hubli or Bangalore airports.
  • Nearest Railway Station: Tarikere lies on the Bangalore - Shimoga railway line and there are trains from Mysore and Bangalore which stop at Tarikere on the way to Shimoga.
  • Road: Lakkavalli dam site is well connected by road network. The lakkavalli dam site is equidistant from Bhadravathi as well as Shimoga. But the drive from Bhadravathis is very picturesque.
