Shravathi Wildlife Sanctuary
Sharavathi Wildlife Sanctuary is in Shimoga District in Karnataka. River Sharavathi takes a spectacular leap at a height of 292 m in four distinct falls - Raja, Rani, Rocket and Roarer - to form the highest waterfalls in India. The best time to visit these falls is soon after the monsoons during July-August. The backwaters of the Sharavati Wildlife Sanctuary offer excellent opportunities for water sports.
