Unchalli falls is just 4KM away from our homestay, Unchalli falls is also known as Lushington Falls, is a waterfall created by a 116 metres (381 ft) drop in the Aghanashini river. The fall is located near Siddapur in Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka, India. The falls are named for J. D. Lushington, a District Collector for the British Government, who discovered the falls in 1845. Heggarne, a hamlet in Uttara Kannada district, is 35 km from Siddapur. The falls are reached by a 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) trek from Heggarne through thick forest. Here the river makes a cavalcade of waterfalls and eventually leaps into a steep valley to form a spectacular, picturesque waterfall. The falls are sometimes called Keppa Joga because of the deafening sound they make.

River bath in Aghanashini
Pure & hygienic river with ancient history and positive energy. A rare experience at Vihara Homestay is a swim in the river. The water here is safe and has ayurvedic significances. The river carries no waste or sewage as it is coming from the hills of Sahyadri. You can swim as long as you want in the river surrounded by forest on all sides.
