Can you please let me know how to reach Mahamane?
The last time I had been there, even locals could not help us find this place :-(. For most of them it was a never heard place. Some ppl told it is near 'Ganesh gudi', but we could not find that either.

Sharath,
Welcome to my blog. There are two ways to go to Mahamane.

1) Through Ulavi - This is in Uttarakannada. Piligrimage center for veerashaivas. We took this route and no one in Ulavi knew the route. We were duped one guy who took us to near-by caves and said it was 'Mahamane':-(( So don't ask any locals:-))

There is mutt in Shivapura and a seer there takes you to Mahamane falls. Shivapura is 4 kms from Ulavi. Read this if it is readable - http://www.ourkarnataka.com/states/karwar/trek_mahamanegavi.htm

2) Another way is from Bhattanapaala. There is one R.S.Bhat, who can take you to Mahamane. I will give you his mailing address in 3 - 4 days. Bhattanapaal itself has a beautiful falls. I have forgotten the exact route for that place. It is in a remotest corner near Dandeli. I will try to get you the info.

There was one edition of Sudha Kannada weekly magazine, which had a list of waterfalls in Karnataka. It was published 3 and half years ago:-) Try to get a copy of it and mail me scanned copies, if you ever get it:-D

You can write to Dinesh Holla, who knows almost every inch of Karnataka:-) Folllowing is a pointer to him. Get to know Rajesh Naik and then you will know Dinesh (he is walking encyclopedia of Karnataka geography):-). You can refer my blog. - http://www.rajesh-naik.blogspot.com/

Remember, don't go now to any waterfalls. U will see everything except water:-)

Now, I need a party for all these info:-))
