Sirimane waterfalls

1st October 2012

Few km from Sringeri is this nice waterfall called Sirimane. Few years ago, one had to walk for five km from Kigga village to reach the falls. But now a road is constructed till waterfalls and concrete steps take us directly to its base.

The best part is that the falls is completely safe to get in. With the absence of deep pools and dangerous swirls, even kids can easily get down to the falls. This made my daughter extremely happy with this waterfall.

Next to the main falls, a small waterfall hides behind the trees.

From a view point nearby one can see the top view of the falls.

A good place to visit if you are in Sringeri. To avoid crowds, visit this falls early in the morning.

very nice and serene, not having proper roads actually helped in keeping it clean and pristine, hope it remains so!

Fondly dubbed as the ‘Pearl of Orients’, Goa is a fabulous blend of the East and the West. Spectacular coastal beauty coupled with rich cultural heritages make it place to remember. Now explore this pristine Indian state and its wondrous attractions with extra delights. Book Goa Hotels beforehand and ensure a tour full of unforgettable moments.

I am thrilled to see these pictures !! Truly a great job. I was searching for information on Marthand Temple and Awantipur temple, as I would be going to Kashmir in September 2014. In fact I would be trekking (The Kashmir Great Lakes), and on my way back I want to visit these temples. Thanks again for valuable info and a preview of what I would be seeing !!
