Varahi River

Varahi is a west flowing river which takes its birth in the Western Ghats at Hebbagilu, near Agumbe in Shimoga District. This river has a total length of 66 km and a catchment area of about 759 sq km. After a long journey, the Varahi River finally meets the Arabian Sea near Kundapura. The powerful river, after 25 km, falls 455 m in cascades to form the lush Kunchikal falls.

The major attraction of the Varahi River is the river rafting which is conducted throughout the year except during the monsoon season (June-Aug). The Sankaranarayana temple is situated on the banks of the Varahi River.
