Chunchi falls is created by the river Arkavati and has rocks all along with path. Due to constant water flow, the rocks have shaped to different shapes. It provides a wonderful view for the nature lover and have lots from artistic view point.
Chunchi falls is located in Kanakpura Taluk in Bangalore District. There are two ways of reaching to there. One is via Santhanur. One needs to take the road to Sathanur Junction via Kanakpura. Take a the road on the left towards Mekedatu. One needs to travel some 18 kms to reach one the same road. One will find a marking saying Chunchi Falls to be 6 kms. Take the road on the left as marked. The other option is take the left after one reaches Kanakpura. You will find some sort of small circle (a small statue is there in the middle of the road). The right hand side of the road takes to Santhanur while the left hand goes to Sangam/Mekedatu. Take this road which will later get linked to the road towards Mekedatu as mentioned above. The road does not have any markings, so it better to ask the locals. They are quiet helpful in this regard. The place is around 95kms from Bangalore (Mekhri Circle).
