Located beside the Nagarhole National Park, the Iruppu falls presents a majestic sight with water cascading down from a height of 170ft. Originating in the lofty Brahmagiri peaks; the falls become a part of the Lakshmana Teertha River in the plains. During the monsoons, the Iruppu falls swell with seasonal rainfall.
The roaring waters of the Iruppu coupled with the picturesque
surroundings make it a great picnic spot. The Rameshwara Temple, located
nearby the falls, attracts a large congregation of devout pilgrims
during the festival of Shivaratri. Natives believe that the Iruppu falls
possesses magical powers and they purge one of one's sins. On the day of
Shivaratri, devotees bathe in these falls to clean their sins.
