Tunga Dam

Gajanur Tunga dam, an S-shaped dam located about 10 km south-west of Shimoga city, is an important picnic spot in Karnataka. Extending to a length of 535 m, it is built across the Tunga River to regulate the flow of water. An elephant training school can be found at Sakrebailu, just 3 km away. Another major attraction is the Mandagadde bird sanctuary, an ideal site for bird watchers.

Shimoga Railway Station is the nearest railhead, at a distance of 12 km and there are regular train services to Bangalore, Mysore and Hubli.
