Gokak is a taluka headquarters mainly known for the beautiful waterfalls here. The Ghataprabha River flows for a number of kilometres and then takes a steep leap crashing across a sanstone cliff. When the waters start falling, it forms a horseshoe and then takes the shape of flood falls. The waters are thick reddish brown in color due to the sandstone that gets infused in the water. This waterfall is also the only attraction in the Gokak Region.
Best time to visit Gokak Falls is February and from April to June
