Must visit waterfalls in Karnataka


Magod Falls is a beautiful waterfall located in the Uttara Kannada district of the Indian state of Karnataka. It is situated in the midst of the dense forests of the Western Ghats, about 17 km from the town of Sirsi.

The waterfall is formed by the Bedti River, which cascades down a height of about 200 meters into a rocky gorge, creating a stunning visual spectacle. The water plunges down with great force, creating a misty spray that engulfs the surrounding area. The sound of the gushing water is music to the ears, and the verdant greenery around the falls adds to the charm of the place.
