Kuntala Falls

Went to Kuntala Falls on New Year’s Eve. They are the highest falls in Andhra Pradesh, around 45 mts high. Apparently, it is the Kadem river, which drops off as the Kuntala falls finally (Hindu article that talks about this a little more). It is possible to cross the waterfall at the base, climb to the top, and even get into the waterfall. I myself didn’t do any of these though 😀

The drive is pretty good, mostly lying along NH7. This is a great highway, broad 4-laned, with plenty of “truck lay bays” and diversions to get on/off the highway along the way. There is a stretch in between though, when it’s again a single-laned road. The drive is about 250 kms (4.5 hrs one way in the morning).

Posting some pics I took –
