Ethipothala Waterfall, Nagarjuna Sagar

About Ethipothala Waterfall Information-Nagarjuna Sagar

Ethipothala Waterfalls, Andhra Pradesh: Basically a mountain stream, gushing down the hill, is what is called as Ethipothala Waterfalls. "Ethipothala" in Telugu means, "to lift and pour". Just about 11 kms from Nagarjuna Sagar, Ethipothala Waterfalls are formed from the combination of three streams Chandravanka Vagu, Nakkala Vagu and Tummala Vagu, all tributaries of River Krishna. The water at this point falls from a height of about 21 metres (about 70 feet) forming a small lake at its foot. This lake has a crocodile-breeding centre managed by the Forest Department of Andhra Pradesh where you can see these water beasts from very close.

You can see the water fall from a table land on the other side. You can even go on the hill from where the water flows down. After flowing for about 3 kms, this stream again joins River Krishna. There are two temples at the foot of the waterfall, dedicated to Ranganadha Swami and Dattatreya Swami. As these temples are situated in the beautiful valley, you have to get down a few steps to visit these temples. You can also see some small caves besides the waterfall. People say and believe that these caves lead the way to Srisailam, the abode of Bhramarambika Mallikarjuna Swami. The tranquil atmosphere in which the waterfall is situated gives you a pleasant experience of your visit.

Towards sunset, these waterfalls are illuminated with colourful lights, adding marvel to the already existing beauty of Ethipothala Waterfalls. This beautiful scene is worth seeing.
