Shimoga is a true picture of natures bounty. A landscape dotted with waterfalls, swaying palms and lush paddy fields make for a scenic and tranquil destination.
The rivers Tungabhadra, Sharavathi, Varada, and Kumudavathi flow undisturbed amongst the verdant region.
Today, Shimoga is more than just a tourist destination. It boasts a rich tradition in education, fine arts, and culture deeply etched in its people and enchanting setting. The charming natural scenery of hills, hillocks and green dales, rivers and streams, dense forests, flora & fauna, forts, temples and historical places make Shimoga a wonderfully conducive environment for study and university life.
