Also known as the "main road town", meaning a village with just one main road and facilities surrounding it, the Yellapur is a town in the Uttar Kannada district of Karnataka. The peculiar feature of this town is,its close proximity to two of the natural falls; namely the Sathoddi falls and the Magod falls.
The Sathoddi falls is one of the well known falls in Karnataka which stands at a distance of 25 kms from Yellapur while the Magod falls, situated in the village of Magodu holds its own too. The Bedthi river, from which the Magod falls originate, takes two distinct leaps to hurl itself from a height of 650 ft into a rocky ravine.
The Yellapur falls on a whole, present you the untamed dose of one of the most beautiful, yet unexplored destinations of wild Karnataka!!!
