Kunchikal Falls, Agumbe

Last Updated:03 Jul 2009 1 Comments

Rated #1 out of 8 attractions in Agumbe

Agumbe is home to many waterfalls, but most of them requires some walking or long treks. Some sources claim Kunchikal Falls, formed by Varahi River in the hill ranges of Agumbe as the tallest waterfall in India and is even taller than Jog Falls. Besides these more known places, it should be possible to find numerous streams and waterfalls coming alive in the jungles of Agumbe during the monsoons.

About a month ago, i went on a trip to shimoga, exploring places just heard of, like you. We travelled almost all around the district in search of the Kunchikal falls, which internet claims to be the highest in India. We enquired all htrough the route about the falls, at Bhatkal, Jog falls, Sagar, shimoga, thirthahalli, Agumbe and all the way to Udupi. After the trip i was determined to find the secret of the falls, and enquired a lot, and finally last week met the chief forest officer at Agumbe. There is indeed a waterfall by the name, about 20km deviation from Thirthahalli. But its a small one, and the 455m height, the internet claims about it, is its height above the sea level. He said lot of people had been spreading wrong info about it for the past 2 years. Jog falls is the highest waterfalls in India.
