LUSHINGTON FALLS / UNCHALLI FALLS

Unchalli Falls, which is also called Lushington Falls, is a waterfall created by a 116-meter drop in the Aghanashini river. The falls is located 30 kilometers from Sirsi, a town in the Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka. The falls is named after J. D. Lushington, a District Collector for the British Government, who discovered the falls in 1845.

The falls can be reached by a five-kilometer trek from Heggarne village 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.
