Muthathi is a small river town, in a rural district of Karnataka, wherein you will find the Kaveri river running shallow and wide. The town is on the edge of the biggest forest range in India, which spreads across three states – Karnataka, Tamil Nadu & Kerala. In case you are lucky enough, you could see wild animals on the way. The huge Masheer game fish is also said to be found here. One needs to take permission from the forest officials in case one is planning to do a trek/night camp in the forest range.
