Unchalli Falls, also known as Lushington Falls, is a waterfall created by a 116-metre (381 ft) drop in the River Aghanashini. The falls are located near Siddapura, Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka, India. The falls are named for J. D. Lushington, a District Collector for the British Government, who discovered the falls in 1845.[1]

The falls are sometimes called Keppa Joga because of the deafening sound they make.[clarification needed]


Siddapur is approximately 35 kilometres (22 mi) from the falls.

Heggarne is approximately 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) away, but visitors need to trek through a dense forest.[2]
