We reached mallaghata falls around 2:15 PM. When we reached the place it started drizzling again. The temple nearby was closed. The lake area looked very big but there was not much water. We saw plenty of tractors taking mud from the lake bed. The falls is just that the water flowing from the lake over a rock. Since there was not much water in the lake there was no falls. We thought we would turn back and visit Tandaga. By then the drizzle became rain. There was no one nearby and place looked beautiful in rain. We just got down from the car and played in rain for some time. Luckily had got a set of spare dress for Harsh and he could change. We came back to turuvekere bus stand and had hot gobi manchurian and drove back home.

Last 3 Kms to the lake was like this.

Not a great place to visit. Lucky for us it rained else it would have been a boring visit.
