At a distance of 45 Kms from Murudeshwar, 54 kms from Jog Falls, 95 Kms from Udupi & 20 Kms from Shiroor (on Udupi - Karwar road), Koosalli Waterfalls is a magnificent waterfall located in deep forest near Koosalli village. The waterfall is 20 Kms from Shiroor via Toodalli (also known as Soodalli) and 5 Kms from Koosalli village.
Koosalli Waterfalls is a 6 step cascading waterfall dropping from a height of 380 feet. One has to trek for 5 Kms from Koosalli through dense forest which also includes difficult rock climbing in order to reach the falls (2 Hrs trek from Koosalli village one-way). This place is highly dangerous during monsoons when the rocks become slippery. Nov - Dec is the best time to trek this place. Koosalli can be reached from Shiroor by Auto (very few buses are available till Toodalli - 5 Kms from before Koosalli).
First three falls are little smaller and remaining three falls are gorgeous. Especially, the sixth fall is awesome with a height of 150 feet.
