Hebbe waterfalls in Chikamagalur ..

Kemmangundi has spectacular waterfalls cascading down along its slopes. Hebbe falls is mesmerizing, offer an excellent view of the cascading water. Just about 13kms away from the famous hill station Kemmangundi. You should go there, in case you are visiting Kemmanagundi. The fall is too great.
Kemmangundi to Hebbe falls route was very muddy & jagged & this is a jeep track route (you can hire a jeep in Kemmangundi). But also I went by my bike & I drove one of the craziest drives I have ever been through. After reaching estate it is 1km walk to the waterfalls. We had to cross 3 small river types where we need to remove the shoes to reach Hebbe falls.
We reached the falls soon & spent sometime out there in the falls, captured enough photos & spent some time. We came back with tremendous memories.
This waterfall is surrounded with dense forests and coffee plantations, cascades down from 250 feet to Dodda Hebbe and Chikka Hebbe 200ft, its two stages.
