Yagatchi Dam

Yagatchi Dam is situated at 3 km from Belur. The dam is built over River Yagatchi which originates near Chikmagalur. It joins River Hemavathi at Gorur (near Hassan), and eventually joins River Cauvery near Mysore. Yagatchi Dam was constructed in 2001 to irrigate and to provide drinking water to the surrounding districts.

Apart from the natural beauty of Yagatchi Dam, you can also rejuvenate your mind with the cool breeze that flows here. Located at a plain land, with small hills of the Western Ghats surrounding the dam, you will be lost in the beauty of the nature with just sitting and watching the calm backwaters.

For the adventurists, there are several water sports that you can get indulged with. You can spend your time on a Jet Ski, or speed boat, or kayaking, or banana boat ride among many other water sports.
