The quaint little village of Dhupadal, located on the outskirts of the city, makes for an ideal picnic spot. The prime attraction here is Dhupadal Dam, which has a beautiful park noted for its colourful fountains. Tourists can head to the majestic Gokak Falls, which is popularly known as the Niagara of India. It sources its water from the Ghataprabha river, which takes a leap of 170 ft over a horseshoe-shaped sandstone cliff after a long winding course. The cliff is nestled in a picturesque gorge of the Gokak Valley. A prime attraction of the Gokak Falls is the hanging 200-m-long bridge that lies 14 m above the bedrock. Tourists can also visit monuments from the Chalukya era situated on both sides of the rocky gorge. These include temples of Goddess Durga, Lord Shanmukha and Lord Mahalingeshwara built in the traditional Chalukyan style of architecture.
