  • Very beautiful falls in the middle of forest. some people only know about this place I suggest to ask local people and go for this place . trekking also available for full view of the falls . July to September is good to see the falls not in summer .bike riding is better than car because u should cross some smalls channels of flowing water.
  • It's a very nice waterfalls located just 25km from jog falls.. But you need to get permission from forest Dept office(near kargal) if you want to visit legally.. Or else if you are caught, sadly you need to bribe the forest Dept officers..Once you reach the dead end of the road, you need to trek down till the falls(its a difficult trek. Almost 70degree slope. At one point you need to go down using rope)
  • 300+ feet water falls, where the only way to reach is getting down through a mere 90 degree descend.. Some places are a bit tricky due to loose soil.. But an interesting visit overall.. Near the water falls, rocks are slippery.. To be watchful over there when enjoying the water fall.. Photographers.. You can experiment a lot here..
  • The most memorable part of my life...I have not gone for such a trucking! Very steep one to step down. If u r interested in adventure plz visit otherwise don't even think of going there...
  • Dabbe falls are naturally cascading falls that offer an enchanting view to visitors. Being a part of the Sharavati Valley of the lush green Western Ghats the waterfall is surrounded by a landscape of pristine beauty. The sound of the water as it gushes down the rocks in a steep descent and the resplendent atmosphere are hard to forget for anyone who visits the Dabbe Falls. There are quite a few legends associated with the region surrounding this particular waterfall in Shimoga. According to one legend, during the time of Ramayana, it was in Sharavati that Lord Rama had broken the bow to win the hand of Sita as his bride. The place is associated with another epic of the Hindus as well. Legend has it that during Mahabharata, Bheema (the second brother among the Pandavas) had visited the region on his way to Sougandhikapushpa in order to get his wife Draupadi. It was this place where Bheema had worshipped Lord Shiva and obtained a boon from him. A temple situated in this region stands as a testament of the incident.
