Thanks Ram, I am not sure exactly about the cost, but it was definitely between 600-700. My friend was the one who negotiated with the owner so I don't have the details

The name of the place is 'Kannika Home stay'. It is located the place where the road to Mallalli Falls (3 kms) branches off from the main road (the road to Pushpagiri).

If informed in advance, they also serve food to travellers who visit the falls. The owner's name is Ponnappa.

Addy,
A very well documented photolouge capturing the water falls, vast expanse of mountains and greenery, an equally good write up.
An absolute treat.
Thanks for sharing.
Regards,

Nice photographs and equally nice travelogue.
Coincidently we also travelled to Coorg on the same weekend and found that maddening traffic enroute Mysore-Blr highway on Sunday evening. Probably we might have crossed roads somewhere for sure.

Congrats addy! Nice & detailed 1st Travelouge. Nobody is going to bash you.
I had been to Somarvpet in my 3rd Year of Engineering course in 1991 but never knew about this beautiful falls.
Thanks for bringing out a new place which can be covered in Weekends.
Definitely I will make it to there after monsoons.
regards

Roads are good all the way except for a 15 km stretch between Kushalnagar and Somwarpet which was a bit rough. I'm not sure if it is in the same condition now

Maybe, but I'm not sure. If you watch from Bisle view point, the falls will be behind a mountain I think. Anyway, it's been a long time since I went to the view point

Thanks guys. It really is a lovely sight to see. Even as of today, not many people know about this waterfall.

Excellent travelogue, very nicely written, and mindblowing photographs!

Its such a beautiful place, I hope it doesnt get over-exploited and commercialized one day!

Wow, there are so many beautiful spots yet to be explored...

+1. The place was untouched when I wrote this travelogue. But, when I visited again last week, a few developmental works had taken place. Steps were constructed to get to the base of the falls and they are charging entry fees to get to the falls. The approach road is improved and during the summer, you can take your car right upto the falls.

The only reason that this place is not well known is because it is not close to any major tourist spots in Coorg and it is out of the way of major highways.

You are right. There are still a lot more beautiful places off the beaten track in India

The name of the homestay was Kannika Homestay. Owner's name is Ponnappa. Ph no is 08276-201148. It does not offer much in terms of luxury. It is just a basic no-frills place. The last time I went there, we had paid 700 Rs per head including food. I'm not sure of the rates now.


EDIT: Oops! I just found out that the pictures taken this time have been messed up pretty badly. My friend had messed up the camera settings and the whole set of pics turned out bad. I'll see if I can salvage any of the pics. Sorry guys

I went in the 2nd week of May after reading your travelogue Addy. I was very disappointed as the falls hardly had any water. But the nature around it more than made up for it. Was the water this time similar to your visit in July '09?

Kannika homestay has now hiked the prices. Its 1000 per head including food.

Will post the travelogue and photos very soon.
