Hidden Water Falls in Coorg.....
Touristors are known about only the above shown falls in Kodagu. But more waterfalls are hidden in the deep forest of Kodagu. We are exploring some of the them here.

Kabbe Waterfalls
One of the villagers gave us the direction to the falls. To reach the  Balliyatra(Kabbe) falls, one has to trek for over an hour in slippery path. Since the trip was not meant for trek, people were not ready for it. There is place one could see the falls from a distance. We went to that point and enjoyed the beauty of the falls. The falls looked very similar to Bandaje Arbi falls.









Baganamane Waterfalls




Chelavara Waterfalls
Chelavara is known for its huge waterfall. It viewed from the road itself. There is also a way to get down and to the top of the falls. The water level of falls was quite high and we could not really get too close to the falls. My attempts to take a photo of falls in full view went in vain. One wrong step would end ones life. Certainly, there was no necessity to take that risk. 





Devarakolli Waterfalls
Fifteen km from Madikeri on Madikeri – Mangalore road is Devarakolli falls. This falls is on the road side and can be found easily.






























Garwale Waterfalls
Garwale is a Village about about 15 km from Madapur, and 35 km from Madikeri. You Can see a Very beautiful Waterfalls on the way of Garwale from Madapur.






















Kalyala Waterfalls
'Kalyala Waterfalls' is located off the Madkeri - Mangalore Highway. It is visible from the highway and looks beautiful. Since the driving directions to the falls were known to us from our first visit, we quickly reached the last motorable stretch from where we had to trek down to view the falls. The drive itself is a mesmerizing one, with the greenery around and the narrow and curvy roads. It feels through the drive at every stretch, as though there's something more beautiful in store for us to see! It was a complete feast to our eyes.





Kuppehole Waterfalls
The Kuppehole Falls near Haleri, off the Madikeri-Sunticoppa-Kushalnagar road is in full flow. The roar of the water piercing the eerie silence of the surroundings is bewitching. Muddy water coming down in huge sheets along the woods is a great sight. It joins the Hattihole near Madapur, ultimately flowing into the Harangi resrvoir.































Karike – Treasure of Water Falls In raining season, about 25 water falls welcomes you near karike village near to Bhagamandala, which is Kodagu-Kerala border area. No residents are found nearby as this area is covered with thick forest. The different falls seems to compete in attracting the viewers.
