Bhavani Sagar Dam in Sathyamangalam, which is around 85 KM from Coimbatore is a huge dam constructed across the river Bhavani. To go from Coimbatore, one could take a bus from Coimbatore to Sathyamangalam but get down in Puliyampettai, and take a town bus from there to Bhavani Sagar Dam. If someone is coming from Karnataka, they could come to Sathyamangalam, and take a town bus to the dam from there, as well.
Sathyamangalam (also called as Sathy) is around 85 KM from Coimbatore, and situated en-route to Mysore. This region is surrounded by thick forests, and one might have already heard the name of this place as Veerappan used to live in these forests.

The entrance ticket fees for Kodiveri Dam is Rs. 5/-. There are two entrances for this Falls, so before buying the ticket ask if that entrance is the one where the public is allowed to go inside…
