It's a pretty good place for a weekend hangout. There are great views which can make up a great background for cover photos ;) The best part was the waterfall which flows on the steps made of stones (Read More)just besides it especially in monsoon. It's slippery at places, but there's a railing to hold on to. A great long ride from Belgaum and bonus points of the fog if visited on bikes (Roads are risky, but worth it)
