• Trip introduction

    Trek to an off-beat destination and explore a little-known corner of the Western Ghats on this trek to Kataldhar Waterfall. As you approach the waterfall, you'll find yourself climbing over slippery rocks and passing through dense, overgrown forests on narrow trails. Upon reaching, you can take a bath in the cool waters of the river gushing over steep mountain inclines.

    This trek to Kataldhar Waterfall takes you over strenous patches of uneven terrain, making it a trek of relatively moderate difficulty.


    Located besides the Shirota Lake near the fort of Rajmachi, the 400-feet tall Kataldhar Waterfall flows over a steeply inclined and curved mountain edge. While the waterfall does not have much water during other seasons, the flow drastically picks up in the months of monsoon. From the highest vantage point at the waterfall, you can look across at the fort of Rajmachi and Shrivardhan as well as the Shirota Lake.
