Magod Falls

Magod Falls River Bedti gushes down in two leaps offering a beautiful view and the wooded area offers an ideal picnic spot. The beautiful falls amidst dense growth of evergreen forests plummets down into a rocky ravine from a height of 650 ft. This waterfall of the Bedti river is about 80 kms from Karwar and around 17kms from Yellapur. You have to take deviation to the left after around 5kms on the way to Ankola from Yellapur (this highway ride which actually starts from Hubli and ends near Ankola meeting NH 17 is an experience by itself. Almost empty smooth road with your loving vehicle hmm..). This place has a forest guest house though, do carry your food and water supplies. To reach to the bottom of the waterfall you have to take deviation of about 10+kms on the way to the place (there is a place with 4 roads meeting at one place , take left) to walk upstream to reach the waterfall.
