See the Incredible Unchalli Falls


Powered by the Aghanashini River in the Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka, Unchalli Falls are also known as Lushington Falls after J. D. Lushington, a British Government official who supposedly “discovered” the waterfall in 1845. Plunging a whopping 116 meters into a steep valley, Unchalli is also nicknamed “Keppa Joga” due to the deafening roar the water makes.

To visit the falls, you’ll need to trek for around five kilometers from the hamlet of Heggarne, through thick forest. However, because this waterfall flows with impressive force year-round, it’s a great alternative to Jog Falls during the dry season (and around an hour way from its big brother).
