Chelavara Falls, Madikeri

3.8
#6 of 16 in Nature in Kodagu (Coorg)
Waterfall Nature / Park
Enjoy lush greenery and fabulous hidden treasure of Coorg at Chelavara Falls, a natural waterfall formed by a stream amidst green coffee plantation. Pouring from 46 m (150 ft), over a rock cascade resembling a tortoise, the falls are known as Emepaare in the local language which is a word for a tortoise in Kodava language. The water crashes into a large pool and you will get sprayed by the water. You can abseil down the falls and dip yourself in the pool but you should be careful during the rainy season. Chelavara Falls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Kodagu (Coorg) Edition.
