Magod falls  

Posted by Girish Hegade in , , , ,

This waterfall of the Bedti river is around 17kms from Yellapur. You have to take deviation to the left after around 5kms on the way to Ankola from Yellapur (this highway ride which actually starts from Hubli and ends near Ankola meeting NH 17 is an experience by itself. Almost empty smooth road with your loving vehicle hmm..). This place has a forest guest house though, do carry your food and water supplies.
To reach to the bottom of the waterfall you have to take deviation of about 10+kms on the way to the place (there is a place with 4 roads meeting at one place , take left) to walk upstream to reach the waterfall.This height of this water fall is around 650ft. On the way to this waterfall you will find nice lake called "Kavade Kere" of about 60acres area.
A word of caution : Avoid sundays and holidays as it will be crowded (mostly with unhealthy social practices).
