Unchalli Falls, Sirsi

(4.4/5 based on 40 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Superb falls but can't reach up to the base of falls. Just we can have a view from a view point. Its a joyfull to watch the falls but you need to trek a lot. 
  • It was nice falls. In Sirsi-Kumta high way, need to go around 30kms inside. We can't go near falls, but u can watch it from view point. 
  • I visited this place known as Unchalli Falls from Sirsi on bike of my relative taking along with me my cousin brother as well. The road to the falls is very interesting and it is an adventure in itsel...  more »
  • You won't be able to get the view very closely to it. But still, mind blowing falls. Beautiful.
  • Three view points. The second one seems to be the best. Rainbow formation adds to beauty of the falls. Caution : The steps vary in height and cracks also can be home to small crabs . The third viewpoint is not complete and one must be very careful. Also note: the Google recommended road from siddhapur was blocked due to overflowing water on a small bridge . The way to go would be via muttalli , yalagar cross, heggarane. Beware of missing sign boards. Seek information from locals.
  • Amazing falls..rainbow formation.. Roads are good..u can go where the falls fall..lil bit difficult to go there though.. No shops near by..away from town..bring foods
  • Tremendous , beauty of love .... everyone will sure enjoy !!! Please visit heaven @ Karnataka 😘 # kek mekk
  • Though not much known or popular, worth to visit. There is a small mud road surrounded by calm and peaceful nature leading to this falls. Not recommended for old people as we have to walk about 2-3 KM to reach the view point. The road is slightly steep. From there, you can again climb down little more, but the steps are very narrow and steep. From the view point itself you will get a magnificent view of the falls. We will get refreshed by the healing touch of nature and sweet music of birds...
