Bear witness to nature’s headlong tumble as the Sharavati river makes a spectacular drop of 810 ft. (253m) in four distinct cascades – known locally as Raja, Rani, Rover and Rocket – to create the highest falls in Asia. The falls are at their hest during the monsoon, with arching rainbows colouring the mist. When the sluice gates of the upstream Linganamakki Dam are closed, it is worth taking a walk right down to the bottom of the gorge.
