Waterfalls of Kolli Hills

'Kolli Hills ' is known for its waterfalls, a mixture of well known and lesser known falls. Thanks to the rains that added more beauty and charm to the nature.

1. Falls 65
 Falls 65 is a road side multi tiered falls which is active only during monsoons.  Since the waterfall is located besides the hairpin bend number 65, and we are not aware of its name yet, here we call it as Falls 65. The roaring noise of the falls attracted us to it. It was a quite pleasant and wonderful weather. Nature was at its best that day!

2. Agaya Gangai / Akasha Gangai Jr Falls :
The Agaya Gangai Falls is the most famous of all the falls in Kolli hills and we were heading towards it. On our way, we found a beautiful flowering tree and wanted to capture its beauty. We stopped by to get some pictures of it. The weather was breezy with continuous drizzle and fog every now and then, which reduced the visibility conditions. While clicking the pictures of that tree, something huge that looked as if nature was pouring gallons of milk into someone's fields caught our eye and we moved further to have a look of what it was! And wow! What a sight! It is probably one of the best waterfalls we have ever witnessed. We are not even sure if this magical waterfall was only a result of the very recent monsoons (the receding northeast monsoons)  or whether it is a regular waterfall. Since we could not find out the name of this waterfall too, we chose to call it Agaya Gangai Junior. We were actually lucky enough  for having sighted this waterfall, thanks to the person at ticket counter who gave us directions of a short cut route to Akasha Gangai falls. Though we did not feel like parting away from this magic, we had to continue our drive towards Akasha Gangai.

    1. Yes, we did find a way down. Since it got slippery as we walked down towards the water fall and the weather conditions were not encouraging enough, we had to return.

  24. What makes a waterfall wandering so exciting is that, when you don't have any idea about it yet, your mind comes up with some brilliant thoughts. And when you discover an unknown panoramic view, it makes you feel so proud that you want to share it to the world. Moreover, the foggy and misty weather right there added a scenic touch to it.
