Let’s Go to Shivgange Waterfall Near Sirsi

As things were getting back to normal till couple of weeks ago ( Now we have new variant so that’s why mentioning it in past tense), we took a small break from our daily lives and revisited this beautiful waterfall Shivagange. Oh by the way, my district Uttara Kannada/ North Canara in the state of Karnataka, is famous for serene waterfalls.! There are many beautiful waterfalls, this one is one of my favourites – Shivgange waterfall.

Shivgange waterfall is around 35 KM away from Sirsi. Western ghats are always soothing. Lush green forest on both side of the road will keep you amused all throughout the journey. Roads are good, you don’t have to do any off-roading as such. Plus they have sign boards placed at regular distance, hence you don’t have to worry about getting lost..! (Hey if you are thinking you will use Google maps if you get lost, let me tell you, network is poor or no network at all in those areas..! ) 

Let’s talk about our favourite topic (apart from travelling and shopping of course), food..!! There is no restaurant or any shops near by. There is a small village named Jaddigadde, which is around 2 Kms away from Shivgange.  You can have or pack some decent food there. Please note, if you are carrying any food items or plastic water bottles, do not litter the place. This is the only planet we have and we need to take care of it. 

Once you reach the parking area, you see staircase guiding you to the waterfall. Government has constructed staircase till the platform where you can get first glimpse of the waterfall. 


The Shivgange Falls is on the river Shalmala, flowing in Uttara Kannada/ North Canara district and it falls from a height of 74m. The waterfall is amidst luscious green forests that adds to the beauty of the waterfall. Sound of water falling, singing of different birds, ahhh music of nature..! So calming.!

If you are a water baby and wondering if you can reach the bottom of the waterfall, answer is yes. You can reach the bottom of the waterfall to get closer view, but that is going to be an exhausting trekking experience..!!

Best time to visit the waterfall is in monsoon or right after the monsoon season. If you are visiting in monsoons, be careful especially if you are planning to trek and get closer to the waterfall. This is surely not an easy breezy little waterfall. You need to be extra careful while trekking, one wrong step and you might end up falling 50-100 ft. Hope you got my point..!! 

You can have glimpse of Shivgange Waterfall here or I would say you can travel to Shivgange virtually here, by clicking on the video.!

Stay tuned for one more beautiful destination post in coming week. Hint : That’s a famous place which is very near to Shivgange waterfall. People who visit waterfall also visit the place where I’ll be taking you to, in my next post.!

Oh by the way, when was the last time you took a quick break to recharge your batteries?? Which is that place? Let me know in the comments section.
