Delight in a waterfall trek involving crossing state borders of Karnataka and Maharashtra. Discover the Phanaswadi Waterfalls. Go over steep ascends and equally inclined descends, through the green thickets of Kankumbi forests in the Sahayadri ranges. A total trek distance of 12km over 6 hours creates a magical escapade ending at the waterfall, which is widely known for providing chilled showers if you go close below.
The guided trek begins with regular procedures of hotel transfer around 7am to Kankumbi campsite. Have your fill of a wholesome breakfast as you prepare for your action-packed day. Around 10am, a short drive takes you to Maan Village, from where you’ll start your trek. The trail lives up to its promise of thrills and chills evident in the surroundings. Since access to the falls is only from Belgaum in Karnataka, you will cross the border to reach the falls located in Sindhudurg District of Maharashtra. Have packed lunch on the way.
But of course, the best part of your trek is the Phanaswadi Waterfall. Spend some time in the cool water relishing the tranquillity and peace around. Head back to Mann Village and reach Kankumbi campsite by 6pm. After a quick round of refreshments, you’ll be dropped back to your accommodation in Belgaum.
