Originating from the river Kaveri, Chelavara falls are one of the most scenic falls in Coorg, famous for their unique appearance. Also known as Embepare (Tortoise) falls locally, the gushing columns of water crash down from a height of 150 ft. on a huge tortoise shaped rock.
It is a mesmerising sight to see the huge white curtains of water cascading down amidst lush green surroundings. The surroundings of the falls are enveloped in the intoxicating fragrance of coffee from the nearby plantations.
They are reachable after a 10-minute easy hike from the end of the Virajpet road. There is a 50 ft. deep plunge pool at the bottom of the fall for a cool refreshing dip. The best time to visit this famous Coorg tourist place is during the monsoons.
