Yellapur

Yellapura is a town in the North Kanara(Uttara Kannada) district of Karnataka in the country of India. Yellapura is known as a "main road town", meaning it is a village with one main road and facilities such as telephone booths, tea serving stalls, and tire puncture repair shops. 90% of the people in Yellapura are farmers who grow Areca nuts and rice.

Yellapura is located in the Western Ghats section of Karnataka. It has an average elevation of 541 metres (1774 feet). Yellapura has two famous natural falls, and many other hills and valleys.

Satoddi Falls: Satoddi Falls is one of the most well-known falls in Karnataka. It is at a distance of 25 km from the town of Yellapura. It is not possible to visit the falls in rainy season. November to April is the best time to visit the falls. On the outskirts of Yellapura, traveling towards Hubli, is the left turn that leads to Satoddi. Part of the road is an all-weather road but a portion, nearly one-third the distance, is not motorable during rains.

Magod Falls
Magod Falls is situated 19 km away from Yellapura, in the village of Magodu. Here, the Bedthi river takes two distinct leaps to hurtle from a height of 650 ft. into a rocky ravine. Near the falls, there is a sunset point called Jenu Kallu Gudda where you can see a beautiful view of the sun set. There is a village called Kalache just 30 km from Yellapur. Hundreds of tourists visit this place every year. On the way from Yellapura to Magod falls, there is a lake in the midst of a forest called Kavdi Kere.

Jenukallu Gudda Jenu means Honey, Kallu means stone and Gudda means hill. This place is a viewpoint in the Western Ghat, which offers a panoramic view of the hills packed one behind the other. Jenukallu Gudda is situated 17 km from Yellapur. The Bedti River from Magod falls cuts across the green hills and bounces all the way to join the Arabian Sea beyond the hills. The breathtaking view of the valley is worth a visit and during sunset the change in the scene is truly magical. There are three hills here, which are at a very high altitude. They are Jenukallu Gudda, Kodekallu Gudda and Balekallu Gudda. The highest hill is the Balekallu Gudda.
