Nagajari waterfalls

It was the first time I went Dandeli 3 years back with Rajesh Sir & his Hubli friends to see Nagajari waterfalls. A new Beautiful place with new friends who had same interests, since we had little time, we had breakfast in Dandeli & reached Kulvi village Around9am.We Parked our vehicle near forest resort & started to walk in one mud jeep track road.
First time I enjoyed bird watching with very experienced friends who gave me new insight in life. We walked very quietly so as not to disturb any of the birds and our teammates were able to attract some birds with their great skill, they used to respond to the birds call mimicking its sound. You can see a large number of different varieties of birds in this region.
Here star attraction of the Dandeli wildlife is the Hornbill. The Great Indian Hornbill and the Malabar Pied Hornbill are an integral part of this resourceful wildlife. I would never have got to see many birds without their help. Listening to exotic bird singing in the morning was a great experience throughout our journey.
After crossing 2-3 streams & little adventure we reached base of the waterfalls. The attraction of the waterfall is here its flows by 3 steps with small distance between thick forests. If we want to reach upper steps we have to climb steep rocks with the support of small trees.
