Sathodi Falls is a picturesque rectangular-shaped waterfall in the Western Ghats. Several unknown streams converge near Kallaramane Ghat to become Sathodi Falls and plunge from a height of about 15 m to create a picturesque picnic spot. In between the bushes and the rocky terrain, there are small pathways leading to the waterfalls.
