At a distance of 30 km from Eturnagaram, 89 km from Ramappa Temple, 120 km from Bhadrachalam, and 140 km from Warangal, Bogatha Waterfall is a nice waterfall situated near Chikupally village in Wajedu Mandal in Khammam district of Telangana. Also known as Chikupally Falls, this is one of the popular tourist places to visit near Hyderabad, and among the best waterfalls in Telangana.
Situated in a forest region between Kaleswaram and Bhadrachalam, Bogatha Falls is formed on Chikupally Vagu that merges with River Godavari. Situated amidst thick vegetation, Bogatha Falls is a favorite picnic spot for the residents of nearby villages. Dropping from a height of over 30 feet in several parallel streams, the water is collected into a large pool at the bottom of the falls. Swimming in the pool is a favorite activity here and swimming here is considered safe.
To reach the falls from Eturnagaram, drive past Godavari Bridge and reach Chikupally village which is 11 km from New Godavari River bridge past Jagannathapuram village. From Chikupally, take a right turn and drive for less than 500 meters and take a right turn again towards Bogatha Falls. The road from here runs through rocky terrain for about 1 km from where visitors need to walk for a distance of 500 meters to reach the falls. Two-wheelers can reach pretty close to the falls.
There is a temple dedicated to Bogateswara Swamy near the temple. The upper part of the falls can be reached from the temple.
