Muthyala Maduvu Falls

This waterfall is known as Pearl Valley as well. Probably because it looks like a stream of pearls falling down from a distance. And yup, the name’s a bit hard to pronounce. But we promise, reaching here is easy and convenient from Bangalore.

Chunchi Falls

How do you reach Chunchi Falls from Bangalore? Catch a bus to Kanakapura or hire a taxi for the day. Also, there’s a couple of good fishing camps nearby. So it’s time to stop sitting idle on your bed all day. Instead, you can do the same with a pole on the riverside. Perfect, isn’t it?

Mekedatu Falls

The name literally translates to “goat’s leap”. Yup, apparently a goat once jumped across the river to escape from a tiger. Whether you believe it or not, you should still visit this scenic place. You know, take a ‘leap’ of faith as well.

Balmuri and Edmuri Falls

Nope, the name doesn’t have anything to do with jhalmuri or bhelpuri. It’s a popular place for tourists visiting for some good travel pics. And moreover, you’re allowed to swim in the midst of the lush surroundings. And that’s so much better than just eating bhelpuri, right?
