The journey starts from the mookambika, kollur. As planned for a low budget trip, have your breakfast from a restaurant near the mookambika temple and buy the necessary water and food to carry through our trekking. As the usual way to Kodachadri there are jeeps from kollur which cost 350INR per person, get on to a jeep and ask the driver to drop you at the waterfall spots instead of usual path to Kodachadri. Or approach a bus from kollur - Valur which cost only less than 100INR per person.
If you travel by bus through the kollur- Nagara road, Ask the bus conductor to drop you after Nittur (the usual jeep route to Kodachadri). When you reach at the spot you will find a road to the right side with a direction board to Kodachadri which is up to 16km from the bus stop.
The jeeps will go as usual through these routes, despite of going to the straight road to Kodachadri take a right turn to an unmeteled road just after 5km from the main road to Kodachadri. This road is easy to spot because of a primary school to the left side and a big tree to the right of the road. This unmeteled road by the side of the tree.
