Monsoon Update From Karnataka - Things (not) To Do

During most of June, it was a drought like situation in Maharashtra, Karnataka and other parts of South India. Despite met department's predictions of near normal rains, there was no sight of precipitation. But come July, what started to look like good rains nearly turned into a deluge. People in the hills rarely got to see the sun, and it kept raining day and night.

The biggest troubles were in Coorg. Bhagamandala, the small village on the way to Talakaveri was flooded many times. Rivers overflowed, and there was no let up in rains. It was the same story along the coast, and in the hills of malnad region. The plains in the north did not get as much rains, but the overflowing rivers coming down from the hills supplied the much needed water.

There has been some decline in rainfall in the last few days, and life is returning to normal. If you are looking up to do some monsoon journeys, this would be the time. There are waterfalls to see, that will be running in full force. Jog and Shivanasamudra, the largest falls in the region are attracting many visitors. A long drive in the plains, where it is not raining much but the weather is pleasant and cloudy would be worth it. It is better to wait and watch for some more time before heading to Coorg, but do go if you are not afraid of the pouring rains. Make sure you are very careful near the water - fast currents have pulled in many people in the deluge in last few weeks, and many lives have been lost. Enjoy the monsoons while it lasts, safely!
