4.5
#1 of 8 in Parks in Sirsi
Unchalli Falls, also known as Lushington Falls, is a waterfall created by a 116m drop in the Aghanashini river. The fall is located near Siddapur in Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka, India. The falls are named for J. D. Lushington, a District Collector for the British Government, who discovered the falls in 1845.Heggarne, a hamlet in Uttara Kannada district, is 35 km from Siddapur. The falls are reached by a 5km trek from Heggarne through thick forest. Here the river makes a cavalcade of water falls and eventually leaps into a steep valley to form a spectacular, picturesque waterfall. The falls are sometimes called Keppa Joga because of the deafening sound they make.

  • This is one hell of a waterfall that i have witnessed. I would say i like this better than Jog falls. The reason is that i saw this in full effect in rainy season. I visited this place in June end whe...  more »
  • You will have to walk a bit to reach the view point, but its worth it... Best time would be during Monsoon OR just after the rains stop.  more »

  • Very beautiful falls around sirsi. Need to walk some distance from the parking of vehicles to the falls view spot. Parking toll are taken here and also charge per person is taken. About 20kms roads are not too wide for the cars. But no problem it's quite good. Just need to be in average speed of 50kmph. Also you would love the nature of environment while travelling
  • Natures beauty at its best. The waterfalls is just amazing. If we go there during the rainy season and when the water is falling at full capacity the sound is amazing. Lot of things have been improved here. The road which connects from Sirsi Kumta road to Unchalli falls is good. 3 viewing points have been made. From the parking place to the falls viewing point, a mini trekking will happen.
  • Amazing tall waterfall formed by the Aghanashini river flowing towards the Arabian Sea. The viewpoint is accessible by a small hike of around 1Km from the parking place. Maintain silence and do not litter. Be careful with the stray monkey and do not feed them.
  • Osm mind blowing place.... Hills , falls osm.. but also dangerous.... With a wild forest, wild animals... When I was visited i Saw the Bear, deer, osm experience.. I think oct-june is best season to visit..
  • Amazing falls only in mansoon n winter foggy place lot of steps for the falls
