Doddamakali

 

Overview

JLR’s Doddamakali Camp is situated 6km upstream from Bheemeshwari. This place is as remote, rugged and as primitive as any place could be. Hugging the River Cauvery, the Camp is absolutely protected and riparian—sylvan in solitude and great for bird sightings. This place is an ideal locale for corporate team building and out outdoor exercises. Being close to Bangalore, yet difficult to access, Doddamakali was the preferred location to offer corporate houses for their off-sites and outdoor training needs.

Accomodation

This Camp has 8 tented cottages with attached bath. However, there is no electricity here. a few hurricane/ solar lamps, which add to the close-to-nature experience of the place. Located sufficiently away from any habitation, Doddamakali offers complete peace and tranquility.

Activities

The camp is being exclusively used by the corporates as their corporate training center. The Camp offers excellent resources for outdoor activities such as treks, games and exercises.However, individual and family holidayers can get in touch with our Head Office us to find out if the Camp is available for their stay. Guests can reach our Bheemeshwari Fishing Camp and trek to Doddamakali, which will prove to be a long and exciting birding trail. As with our other fishing camps – Bheemeshwari and Galibore – angling at Doddamakali can be very rewarding. The strech of Cauvery here offers very good opportunity to meet the mighty Mahseer and other local fish. For those interested in trying a hand at fishing for the first time, our guides can help you with joy fishing.

Season

The best time to visit is just after the monsoon, between August and February, when the river is swollen and the forest and the surroundings are rich with green vegetation. This time is ideal for bird watchers too, as river terns, fishing eagles, wood peckers, king fishers, and plenty of other species flock here in large numbers. However, at other times water recedes to reveal wide sand banks where you could laze in the evenings or wade in the many lagoons created by the ebbing water. Summers (March – June) can be very warm, especially in the afternoons.

Wildlife

Over 200 species of birds have been identified around the camp. Among the water-based birds, you can spot the grey-headed fishing eagle, spot billed duck, small pied kingfisher, black-bellied river tern, osprey, and many more. There are also a number of rare land-based birds such as the honey buzzard, tawny eagle, pied crested cuckoo, etc.

Location

To reach Doddamakali, you have to go past Halagur and drive through metal road and reach Shimshapura village. Halgur is a small town past Kanakpura on the Bangalore-Kanakapura road. From Shimshapura, you have to either walk down or negotiate through winding road in a jeep. We suggest you stay at Doddamakali, if you are interested in real wilderness and are prepared to rough it out.
