Shankar Falls Reviews & Ratings

  • Please dont waste your time going here, we reached this place and found out that it's permanently closed

  • Reach early in the morning before the shop near the falls opens here.. They usually do not let anyone inside. Never to miss it's a beautiful waterfall if you can take a 500mts walk. Use Google map to locate. It's difficult to see from far due to it's densely covered forest.

  • It's very nice..... i am leaving here around 4 km... that's why I went there...but don't go there anyone bcz due to security rescue its banned by chikmaglur district police..

  • A surprise view.. Amazing place .. Very less crowded

  • This falls just 15 to 20 feet high. No network here. If you are living in chickmagalur around it's worth to picnic. Avoid long drive to visit here. No hotels so carry food. Just 10 min walk from highway.
