Chicklihole Dam in Coorg near Suntikoppa
Chiklihole reservoir in Coorg is located in between Madikeri and Kushalnagar and is roughly around 15 kms from Kushalnagar and Madikeri and the bonus is, it’s near to Dubare.
Chicklihole (chick-lee-holay 🙂 ) Dam is not among the best tourist spots but it’s definitely a nice and calm picnic spot. Spending the afternoon until dawn here would be a better idea as it gets too hot till noon and there is no shade to protect you from the hot sun and it’s advised to take your food and snacks along as there are no shops around. Moreover, the best time to visit would be during monsoon and winter i.e from June to March as there will be more water in the dam.
The best part at Chicklihole is the sunset. It’s really an amazing place to view the sunset amidst the Kaveri River and greenery around.
