At a distance of 7 km from Magod Falls, 17 km from Yellapur, and 59 km from Sirsi, Jenukallu Gudda is a viewpoint situated at Magod village in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka. It is one of the spectacular viewpoints in the Western Ghats, and among the popular Sirsi Tourist Places.

Situated at an altitude of 450 m, the Jenukallu Gudda viewpoint offers a panoramic view of the hills packed one behind the other. Jenu means Honey, Kallu means stone and Gudda means hill. Besides Jenukallu Gudda, Balekallugudda and Kodekallugudda are other popular hills here. The highest hill is the Balekallu Gudda. The Bedti River from Magod falls runs across the green hills and descends all the way to join the Arabian Sea beyond the hills.

The breathtaking view of the valley from Jenukallu Gudda is worth a visit during sunset as the change in the scene is truly magical. One can spot elephants, bison, and King Cobras roam in the forests. The roads are manageable but at certain points, they do offer a challenge for small cars. Pack food and water as there is nothing available at the place. The nearest place is Yellapur that has few restaurants with restrooms.
