I Was Here: Irpu Falls

My first visit to Irpu Falls was in October 2007, during a two-day bike ride in Coorg. I was there again this April. There were quite considerable changes between these two visits – prominent being the amount of water. My first visit was just after the monsoon & the latest being in the middle of summer.

One other major change was the man-made metal ramp below the falls. So that people can walk right under the falls & enjoy the water. That means more people visiting the place, more litter and complete loss of tranquility.

First visit to Irpu falls was on motorbike and second in a four wheeler. Hope to visit the place next time on my bicycle :)

PS: First photo was taken in Oct’07 and second in Apr’10

  1. Nice blog. I have heard about Irpu fall as a famous tourist attraction. One can also visit the Shiva temple, located on the banks of the Lakshmana Tirtha River.

      Rajesh, irony is the ramp has been built so that devotees can take a holy bath!!!

      Sandeep, no. Saw the board there. Inquired about getting permissions in that ticket counter. But no info available there. Need to check in Srimangala forest office.
