Hasirumakki is a ferry point between Sagar and Nittur. We need to cross the Sharavathi back water using a Barge (big boat like vehicle). Huge, long stretch of back water surrounded by thick dense forests make it a most beautiful spot, which you will cherish for a long time.
Sharavathi backwater is about 60 KM in length and about 15 KM wide !!!!. It became backwater when dam was constructed at Linganamakki of Sagar taluk in Shimoga district to the river Sharavathi. This backwater has created lots of islands, it is so great to explore all these, where thick vegetation still exist and lots of wildlife in it including some rare birds.
