“We took many left turns. Once, twice, or even more. Then came a right. It was dense. It was chilly. The only thing I could see was forests, deep forests and crystal-like water streams running down the lane. The trek was no easy game, we had to stretch, run, jog, and what not! And then came the mighty waterfall, the view, the calm noise, ahh it was a moment of joy. A moment that I will remember for the rest of my life.”, said one of the trekkers after coming back from this trek.
Courtesy of one of the tributaries of the Netravathi river, the falls are 200 ft in height and offers a breathtaking view and utter calmness; obviously this part is generally preceded by an eight-hours long trail which requires will, dedication and a tinch of madness!
Disconnected from the outer world and connectivity, the falls are really picturesque as they take on a mighty shape in the late monsoon season. Summers are not advised as the falls thin down significantly plus the scorching heat is an added trouble.
Furthermore, the trek also requires permission from the Belthangady wildlife range office, Kudremukh national Park for the expedition.
