The Suvarnavathi river is one of the southern tributaries of the river Kaveri. This river, also called Honnuhole (Honhole), begins from Nasurghat hills in Mysore. From the place of its origin to where it converges with Kaveri, the Suvarnavathi is about 88 km long.
The Suvarnavathi river is formed when the two streams, Niredurgihalla and Araikaduhalla join at Badibadga. The river is joined by its tributaries Chikkahole and Yenehole before its confluence with the Kaveri.
Mysore has several lakes and rivers. These tourist spots are ideal for day trips to appreciate nature around Mysore.
