Jogi Gundi Falls is a cute waterfalls situated close to the road between Agumbe & Barkana Falls. It is at a distance of 47 Kms from Udupi, 17 Kms from Hebri & 3 Kms from Agumbe (which is located on Udupi - Tirthahalli road)

Jogigundi Falls like most of the falls in and around Agumbe is situated amidst the dense forests of the Western Ghats of Karnataka. But, this is your slightly different waterfall. Unlike your traditional waterfall, it flows out of a cave that runs through the hill.

The water at this place fall from a height of 20 feet into a huge pool. The surroundings of the falls capture great natural beauty and it's an ideal place to spend a couple of hours. It's possible to get into the falls and swim in the pond. The water from this stream merges into Malapahaari River, a tributary of the Tungabhadra. The pond got its name from the saint Jogi who used to meditate at this place.

The amount of water that comes out of the Jogigundi falls might not be scary, but the sheer thought of water coming out of a dark cave is thrilling. But, keeping the adventure factor away, this place is great for a half day visit. A very pleasing and natural swimming pool greets you at the end of this trek. If you look to your left, you will find the Jogigundi Falls. The entire place is made up of eroded rocks and green forests. One has to cross a small stream to get onto the other side of the waterfall from where the entire landscape is easily visible. It is when you cross the stream that you notice the huge holes in the rocks below and the sight of water gushing through these holes makes for a great sight.

One can comfortably swim in the swimming pool in front of the waterfall. Apart from swimming and taking a waterfall shower, one can explore the nearby forest trails or try to do some birding.
