Unchalli Falls, also known as Lushington Falls, is a beautiful waterfall created by a 116 metres (381 ft) drop in the Aghanashini located at a distance of 25 km from Sirsi in Uttara Kannada district. The falls are named for J. D. Lushington, a District Collector for the British Government, who discovered the falls in 1845.

The falls are reached by a 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) trek from Heggarne through thick forest. Heggarne is a hamlet in Uttara Kannada district, is 35 km from Siddapur.Here the river makes a cavalcade of water falls and eventually leaps into a steep valley to form a spectacular, picturesque waterfall. The falls are sometimes called KeppaJoga because of the deafening sound they make.The noise of the waterfalls hurtling down the hilly area breaks the silence of the forests.
