Speciality

Chikli Hole Dam is a small but beautiful water reservoir built across river Kaveri. The Dam is one of its kinds and is unique in its construction. The water flows down from the main stock through a conical surface built in the form of a funnel. The landscape and the back water, crept through the mountains is panoramic and indeed a feast to watch. This spot is about 12 kms from Kushalnagar on the Kushalnagar-Chettalli-Madikeri road. It is located very close to Dubare, about 5-7 Kms. The best part of the Dam is the spectacular view of the sunset. Carry some shades or umbrella if you are going to this place during the mid day.
