Sharavati Reflections

The barge is waiting to load the car and the bus and cross the river Sharavati. Passengers can cross the 8 kilometer distance by paying just one rupee- equivalent to 2 cents!
This huge lake was formed when the dam was built across the Sharavati river. The river flows on through dense forests of the Western Ghats. The famous Jog Falls are about 60 kilometers from here.
My thanks to James for Weekend Reflections.

  2. Lovely images! Can't imagine getting such a ride for a rupee only! So Jog Falls (so beautiful and famous) isn't far from this spot? Interesting!
