Only localities can guide us as there is no signage or proper path available to reach, and it’s one of the must see Unexplored waterfalls in Karnataka.

The water was crystal clear and cold. We spent more than 2 hours by playing in the Ukkada falls. Initially we reached the base of the waterfall and we need to trek further to reach the top of the waterfall.

Throughout the way we couldn’t see any other people other than one or two coffee estate people. On the way we sighted lots of Samba deer. We were able to see few birds and the humming sound of the birds inside the forest was mesmerizing.
