About Chelavara Falls

A haven for nature lovers, the Chelavara Falls, located 43 km from Madikeri rests cozily amidst lush green coffee plantations. A gushing stream falling from a height of 150 meters, the water makes its way streaming through the surrounding rocks to reach a calm water flow ultimately. Locally know as Emepaare, which means tortoise in local Kodava language, the waterfall is seasonal and get its name from the rock over which the water cascades, which is in the form of a tortoise. The waterfall is close to the connecting road and needs little march downhill to reach the spot. However, the best part of your trip will be ‘Chomakund,' a magnificent valley that remains wet and dewy throughout the year. This hill range is just 2 km away from the Chelavara falls, and the entire valley remains replete with fog and lush green shrubs and trees, the magnificence of which seems never to dissipate.

Pro Tip: Carry food and water bottle as you would not find any facility nearby. Not advisable for senior citizens and small kids.
