The waterfall is locally known as Kemmanagundi waterfalls. 'Kemmanagundi' means a place where deer comes.

It's a 15-20 mins trek from Didupe.

My stay in Didupe was with a farmer.

Day 1 was a tiring day as I got stuck in rains and rode for around 50 kms of Charmadi ghat region in heavy rains.

And after riding for 300 kms I wanted to just get into my tent and sleep off.
