CHUNCHANAKATTE WATERFALLS MYSORE | Wanderlust On Wheel

Tripoto

Post Balmuri and Edmuri falls we started driving further for another 55-60 to visit famous Chunchanakatte Falls which is formed by Cauvery River. The river flows into Chunchanakatte forming a 60 feet tall and about 350 feet wide waterfall. It is one of the top Mysore tourist places to visit in monsoon and another popular attraction not to miss in a Mysore tour package.

Legend describes that Lord Rama during his tenure in the forests stayed in this place on the behest of the tribal couple Chuncha and Chunchi. There is a belief that Goddess Sita took holy bath in this place and till now the water colour in that area looks like mixed with turmeric and other holy powders used for pooja.

This gorgeous waterfall is ideal for a day tour surrounded by lush green forests, and an age-old temple dedicated to Lord Kodanda Rama situated just beside the waterfalls.

There is a hydraulic power generating station installed which gives siren before releasing water due to which many time a sudden raise in water flow is observed which is dangerous.
