Kannigundi Water Falls

We were testimonies of successful attempts to reach a remote waterfall in virtually unexplored regions. As of our character last weekend once again Rajesh Sir & I decided to do one more attempt in unknown region to explore one beautiful waterfall.
The journey was fairly light it was a short trek via local Areca nut estate and would be presented with one of the most dramatic waterfalls almost 2.30 hours journey from Udupi. Rajesh Sir had searched this Unknown waterfall & we started our journey late Sunday afternoon, Anil once again accompanied us on his bike.
After about 15min of riding we parked our bikes on a mud road and started our trek after passing few houses we entered into dense vegetation inside the estate our walk inside the estate was very calm and with less effort we could reach the waterfall in less the 15 min from the road, this area was even more serene and very quiet except for the sound of the gushing falls it was complete peace
This waterfall though small in size when compared to the other waterfalls, was very beautiful. Here it cascades in 3 wide steps upon a big wide rock slab. View from the bottom of this fall was breath taking very spectacular a small wonder with its full energy a very relaxing and calming atmosphere to match though a small short trek it was glorious,
since this fall is very easy to approach and such places are usually crowded and littered with unmindful visitors hope it's serenity is maintained and place well preserved, this fall is located inside a estate and later it may become a private property also and with that the place may retain its peace.
After spending some time we returned back late in the evening with a very refreshed mind to go about our daily work for rest of the week....

Looks like this trek is an example of what a true monsoon trek should be. Ingredients look apt for adventure, be it the locale, pounding rain, and obvious difficult terrain.

Wonderful experience for folks in the trek as well for readers.

Kudos!!
