    Karnataka2 Karnataka2 Presentation Transcript

    • Karnataka abounds in a torrent of sparkling waterfalls set amidst the sylvan environs of the districts of Kodagu and Uttara Kannada. West-flowing rivers gush through thick forests in coastal Uttara Kannada, breaking into streams that meander over hilly tracts to end in a series of dramatic, plunging finales throughout the region.
    • Jog Falls
      Bear witness to nature's headlong tumble as the Sharavati river makes a spectacular drop of 810ft. (253m) in four distinct cascades - known locally as Raja, Rani, Rover, and Rocket - to create the highest falls in Asia.
    • Unchalli Falls
      Heggarne, a dreamy hamlet in Uttara Kannada district, is just 35km from Siddapur. A further 5km trek from Heggarne through dense forests brings you to the picturesque Unchalli Falls.
    • Magod Falls
      The mesmerisingMagod Falls are located 80km from Karwar. Here, the Bedthi river takes two distinct leaps to hurtle from a height of 650ft. into a rocky ravine.
    • Hebbe Falls
      An 8km trek from Kemmangundi along a steep and narrow path leads you to these sprightly falls. Surrounded by dense forests and coffee plantations, Hebbe Falls gushes down from a height of 250ft.
    • Shivanasamudra Falls
      Discover nature's handiwork in the form of this tiny island-town 65km east of Mysore. Forested hills and lush green valleys cradle a small hamlet and two fine temples.
    • Abbey Falls
      Tucked away between private coffee and spice estates, Abbey Falls (9km from Madikeri) offers a splendid backdrop for picnics. As you make your way past stocky coffee bushes and tall trees.
    • Iruppu Falls
      Nestling beside the Rajiv Gandhi National Park (Nagarhole,) Iruppu Falls presents a stunning sight during the monsoon. From their humble origins in the Brahmagiri Range, the falls plunge 170ft. in two distinct stages.
    • Kalhatti Falls
      Water cascades from the top of the Chandra Drona Hill from a height of 45m to flow before the Veerabhadreshwara Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.
    • Lalguli Falls
      Lalguli Falls are located about 15km north of Yellapur in Uttara Kannada District.
    • Sathodi Falls
      About 32km away from Yellapur, several unknown streams converge near KallaramaneGhat, and plunge from a height of about 15m to create a picturesque picnic spot.
    • Gokak Falls
      Located 65 kms from Belgaum, Gokak gets its name due to the Goki trees found in abundance in these areas.
