Popularly known as the Niagara of India, Gokak Falls is one of the prettiest in the country. It sources its water from the Ghataprabha river, which takes a leap of 170 ft over a horseshoe-shaped sandstone cliff after a long winding course. The cliff is nestled in a picturesque gorge of the Gokak Valley. A prime attraction of the Gokak Falls is the hanging 200-m-long bridge that lies 14 m above the bedrock. The Gokak Falls also holds immense historical significance as it was here that electricity was first generated in India, in 1887. The generating station can be reached through a ropeway, which makes for a truly thrilling experience. Tourists can also visits monuments from the Chalukyan era situated on both sides of the rocky gorge. These include temples of Durga, Shanmukha and Mahalingeshwara built in the traditional Chalukyan style of architecture. Lying at a distance of about 60 km from Belgaum, the falls is known for its beauty, speed and shape. June to September is the best time to visit here as the waterfalls is at its scenic best.
