The main attraction at Thottikallu is the Thottikallu falls which are situated off Kanakapura main road near a village known as Byalemaradadoddi.
The road that leads to the fall from Byalemaradadoddi is a muddy stretch and is a treacherous terrain. Inspired by the enchanting beauty of the falls, it is also known as Swarna Mukhi which takes a plunge from 50 ft tall convex shaped rock.
The water is jewel white and the volume swells during the rainy season which makes it a sight to behold. The splashing beauty is very refreshing for the sore eyes who live in the city and is a perfect spot for a day hiking expedition.
Thottikallu falls is also close to Bannerghatta national park which is just 7 KM a distance. There is a quaint temple at the entrance of the falls named Muneswar Temple which is a landmark and a resting spot for the trekkers and the bikers. Bikes are the best vehicle to take to this pretty waterfalls as the road leading to it is narrow and muddy.
