Chelavara Falls is one of the most enchanting falls in Coorg, Karnataka. These vigorous falls gush down from a height of 150 feet on a rock shaped like a tortoise. Therefore, this fall is also known as Embepare in the local dialect which translates to "tortoise rock". This massive natural marvel originates from a small stream, a tributary of Kaveri near Cheyyandane village in Karnataka. Nestled amongst the serene greenery of coffee plantations, the Chelavara falls are quite the sight. The best experience can be had during the monsoons or just after when the water level is at its peak and the surrounding forests at their luscious best.
Twisted narrow roads lead up to this enthralling Chelavara Falls where nothing wider than a minibus can pass through. There is also a nearby viewpoint which is around 2 km from this place and worth a visit. Chelavara falls is the perfect getaway not only from the boredom of daily life but also the cacophony of the usual tourist places. Tourists are advised against taking a dip to avoid any kind of fatalities.
