Kunchikal Falls Overview

Kunchikal Falls is a splendid waterfall also known as Kunchikal Abbe is situated at Mashthikatte-Hulikal border in Nidagodu village, which is the border of Shimoga-Udupi, Karnataka. It is one of the beautiful waterfalls near Agumbe. The Kunchikal waterfall is structured by River Varahi, The side streams of River Varahi create several seasonal falls in the nearby forest during the monsoons. The Varahi River courses on for 25 kms, after which it takes the form of the Kunchikal Falls. The total height of the waterfall is 455 meters (1493 feet to be accurate).The sparkling view and picturesque location are wonderful when enjoyed in nature's delight. The most beautiful thing about the Kunchikal waterfall is the natural appearance of the rocks which the water cascades giving a breath-taking, mesmerising view. The Kunchikal falls come under the hydroelectric projects, to generate high power of electricity. The power generated by the waterfalls goes into the Mani dam and Hulikal Power generation station, which is why the water flow to the falls, is drastically reduced ,Hence Rainy season is the ideal time to visit the waterfall (July to September). Hulikal is part of the Balebare Range of hills, lies in the Western Ghats.

The Kunchikal waterfall is said to be one of the least explored falls in the country, but the area is well maintained with the lowest littering, and the prohibition on the usage of plastic bags make the fall very little pollute. The dam prevents public to drive in the area, so traffic can be struck out from the list. The Kunchikal fall is one of those exclusive picnic spots to get away from the fast-paced life we all are living and spend some quality and time in peace, solitude and tranquillity. Kunchikal Falls is accessible by road and visitors just have to walk a few meters from the parking to view the falls.
