Kallathigiri Falls (53 km from Chikmagalur)

Published Date: 09-May-2024

You can soak in nature’s magnificence, quite literally, at Kallathigiri Falls, which is one of the most intriguing places to see in Chikmagalur. With water rushing wildly from about 400 feet and down the Chandra Drona Mountains, this waterfall is a marvel indeed. An overhanging ledge is the best part here, as you can stand right under it and feel the water pound on you. Locals believe that these waters have healing powers as well. The surrounding rocks and lush flora appeal to photography enthusiasts, peace lovers and even trekkers. You can seek divine blessings at the Veerabhadra Temple here, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva, and creates a unique setting.
