Renowned for its magnificent scenery and peaceful atmosphere, Mekedatu is one of the best Kanakapura tourist places. Famous as Goat's Leap, Mekedatu is basically a stretch of deep, narrow gorges serving as a popular getaway near Bangalore. While a number of city dwellers come here for enjoying an uninterrupted picnic over weekends, you will also come across scores of photographers and nature lovers basking in the bountiful nature of this secluded haven.
The waters of Cauvery and Kollidam rivers, after their confluence at Sangam, pass through this spot and create a spectacular scene. To witness the stream in its full glory and the surrounding vegetation shrouded in mist, one must visit Mekedatu during the rainy season.
