A good option is to go for boating in the River Kaveri while at Nisargadhama. At places, the river is a little shallow too, and people are allowed to enter into the river at a few safe points. It is not uncommon to find people enjoying themselves in the river or walking through the shallow portions. Even though the old hanging bridge is not functional anymore, it continues to stand there as a major tourist attraction. In place of the old bridge, a new hanging bridge is now used to cross the river.
