The Gokak Falls is a waterfall located on the Ghataprabha River in Belagavi district of Karnataka, India. The waterfall is six kilometers away from Gokak town.After a long winding course, the Ghataprabha river takes a leap of 52m over the sand-stone cliff amidst a picturesque gorge of the rugged valley, resembling Niagara Falls on a smaller scale. The waterfall is horse shoe shaped at the crest, with a flood breadth of 177m. During rainy season, the thick reddish brown water sweeps far over the brink of the cliff with a dull roar that can be heard from some distance. There is a hanging bridge across the river, measuring about 201m. Its height above the rock bed is 14m. There is an old electricity generation station and electricity was generated here for the first time in 1887One interesting feature of this place is the monuments from the Chalukya era that are found on either bank of the rocky gorge. Another attraction of this place is the very old river-front temple dedicated to Lord Mahalingeshwara, built in the Later Chalukya style of architecture.It is very unfortunate that Gokak Falls is Notorious as suicide spot.CommutationDistance from Kolhapur : 100 km

  • It's just amazing! What a view from the edge of the fall! The waterfall cannot be accessible in rainy season because of the high flow of the river and the ideal time to visit is in December!
  • It's in it's cataract splendour in the rains you may only see rocks from October onwards. Best time to visit June end to September
  • This is a widely popular picnic spot near Belagavi (Belgaum). The scenic beauty of the spot is amazing. Though,the real beauty of the spot gets exhibit during rainy season, yet visiting the spot in non rainy seasons are also terrific. It has three more landmarks colocated . First being an old mill of 1887 vintage , constructed by British . Second landmark is again 1887 vintage and Asia's first Hydro electric power house, which was constructed to supply power to the cotton mill.Third landmark is a Shiv Mandir . The cantilever bridge of the same vintage adds beauty and charm to the spot.
  • Nice place to visit. Nayaz restaurant is near by. Good place to dine.
  • Better you go only during rainy season.. nice place to visit
