A trip to waterfall is a refreshing idea for many and adventurous for many others. The district of Adilabad is blessed with two beautiful waterfalls- one is the Pochera Waterfall and the other is Kuntala Waterfall. The latter being more important as it is said to be the highest waterfall in Andhra Pradesh.
Kuntala waterfall is located amidst the dense forest of the Sahayadri range of mountains. This waterfall is located about 12kms from a village called Neredigonda. The beauty of this place enriches with the River Kanda that flows through the dense forest nearby. There are many big and small waterfall formed by this river but at certain point, this river comes and falls from a height of 45 metres. This is where it is called as Kuntala waterfall.
It is one of the amazing and refreshing experiences to see as the water gushes out of the rocks and falls with a force that turns the water below to whirls. It is very enjoyable in the monsoon season when the water flows with all its vigour.
Very close to the Kuntala waterfall, there is a temple of Lord Someshwara Swami. This temple is situated in a beautiful where two hillocks slit to form a passage as the entrance to the temple. This is a temple of Lord Shiva. The locals offer daily rituals to the lord and on Mondays special puja is performed.
Every visitor who visits the waterfall makes sure to visit this ancient temple. On Maha Shivarathri this temple is beautifully decorated with flowers. Many devotees from local and nearby places visit this temple.
