Madin Hole Waterfalls - Udupi

There is never ending excitement for monsoon treks every time there is something new happening and this time I chose Tombattu village know to have some real good waterfalls around, this place was very new to me I had heard that it to be quiet dangerous but that never deterred me from venturing there, I gathered information from my friend Rajesh Naik who knew few things and with a local friend and few articles I was all set to start..
So finally Sunday morning by 6.30 Me,Rohith,Ashok&Chandu started form Udupi & In between Sudheer, Mahesh& Mohan joined our team. Totally we are 7 with 4 bikes. Some places road was very bad and we struggled to drive, but it all part of this crazy adventure. After a long ride we reached this village & my friend’s relative joined to guide us.
He told he would take us to MadinHole Waterfalls, so we started to at 10. After 5 minutes walk we entered dense forest, by then it started raining. We crossed 3 streams, faced so many vipers on the way. Finally after one hour tough walk we reached the spot. When we saw the waterfalls we were awed by its beauty, such a huge & a very different waterfall surrounded by dark woods and hilly region; dense vegetation on the pinnacle, hanging creepers, and dark overhanging rocky cliffs made the falls more amazing.
You can enjoy various small waterfalls here which are about 15-20 meters high and main falls around 100 meters high. MadinHole is really a wonderful place where you can enjoy the beauty of the nature. We climbed one big rock to see enjoy more. We romanced with cold water sprays. Everyone took bath & enjoyed some time in this place, a wonderful soul stirring experience under a waterfall.
One more Small waterfalls just 5 minutes walk-able distance from Tombattu village.
