Iruppu Waterfalls aka Lakshmana Teertha Falls are a fresh water cascade, surrounded by the picturesque views in the border line of Wayanad.
It is actually located in the Brahmagiri Range of Kodagu district of Karnataka and very near to Nagarhole National Park.
It starts off from the Brahmagiri peaks and the falls plunge 170 feet in two different stages. It presents an outstanding view during the monsoons. These falls later become the part of the Lakshmana Teertha River and hence this waterfall is also known as Lakshmana Teertha Falls.
Apart from a tourist spot, it’s a pilgrimage spot too. The Rameshwara Temple, a famous Shiva temple on the banks of Lakshmana Teertha River attracts pilgrims during Shivaratri.
It is also believed that this waterfall have supernatural powers to eliminate one’s sins.
