    The river, which is more than 150 meters wide at the meeting point (at Sangama) flows through the barely 10-meter-wide gorge at Mekedatu. As per local legend, a goat being chased by a tiger managed to cross over the raging river by leaping across the gorge and saved its life in the process – thus giving rise to the name ‘goat’s leap’. 

    Approaching the spot, one can see the magnificent flow of all the water as it roars down the ravine. However, one must tread cautiously in this region as the rocks are deceptively slippery and the water below is deep.
