Chelavara Falls in Coorg
Updated: Jul 4
Chelavara Falls in Coorg is one of the most enchanting falls in Coorg, Karnataka. These vigorous falls gush down from a height of 150 feet on a rock shaped like a tortoise. Therefore, this fall is also known as Embepare in local language which means "tortoise rock" in daily language. This huge volume of natural beauty originates from a small stream, a tributary of Kaveri near Cheyyandane village in Karnataka. Nestled amongst the serene greenery of coffee plantations, the Chelavara falls are a sight to see and a memory to remember. The best experience can be had during the monsoons or just after monsoons when the water level is at its peak and the surrounding forests at their luscious best. The enchanting falls tumbling down the lush greenery are enough to take your breath away. Standing on the nearby rocks, feeling the refreshing breeze across the face with water splashing on you, is a mesmerizing feeling. Although, visitors must remember that this apparently cheerful fall is actually 100 meters deep. Tourists are advised against taking a dip to avoid any kind of accident. Chelavara falls is 41 kms from Madikeri, One of the Best places of visit in Coorg.
