It was afternoon by the time we reached the entrance gate. I was expecting another waterfall. But nothing could have prepared us for the sight we witnessed, The authorities have built 3 observation decks at various levels. And each of the levels gives you a different perspective of the mighty and majestic falls.

I had visited last week when I tagged along with a Karnataka eco tourism volunteer. A km walk will help you to reach the falls, unfortunately we missed the view as it was foggy in the evening. But we could hear the roaring sound and water splashing all over. Am sure I have to visit again for the view of... More

The best waterfalls i have ever seen. Awesome climate. Must watch for nature lovers. One should watch this in monsoon season. You will like heaven. I had visited on July 15th. Its better than Jog falls.

Had been here twice till date ; once on a full-on monsoon and another time during April- Splendid location and a delight for trekkers!! Not so easy to find - and hence its not so littered and dirty yet.

Its a road less travelled by many ! Surprisingly our tourism minister even though hails from Uttara kannada , not much has been done in this region in terms of tourist amenities, leave alone other things like cable car or access to view points etc . However some brave hearts are venturing in these region at own risk and it... More

Sirsi town is situated in Western Ghats, surrounded by evergreen forest and gifted with large number of waterfalls. Aghanashini River emanates at "Donihalla" near Sirsi and flows creating many waterfalls along its path to merge in Arabian Sea. Many trekkers are familiar with Sirsi as it has been attracting them as well as nature lovers. Its location is an ideal... More

Travelled for about an hour to see these falls, in a gorge about a mile deep, they must be fantastic - but, we did not see them, all we saw was cloud and mist! As I said, I am sure the falls are great to see but it is best to visit in the afternoon when the mist has dispersed.... More

Unchalli falls are about 50 km from Jog Falls and I strongly recommend visiting Unchalli rather than Jog. This is due to the fact that even during lean rainy season like this year, Unchalli still has plenty to offer as opposed to Jog which practically dries up due to water being withheld on upstream dam. The falls are beautiful to... More
