Gokak Falls

Water from Ghataprabha River takes a long leap to give birth to Gokak falls. The water coming from this river is separated from Malaprabha River by hills. Gokak waterfall appears to be a mini Niagara Falls because of similarity in general characteristics of water in these falls like its shape, height and speed. The significance of this place, other than this beautiful waterfall, lies in an old electricity generation station. It is here that the electricity was first produced in India in 1887. There is also a hanging bridge over the river at a height of about 14 meters. It is 201 meters long bridge on which only 30 people are allowed at a time. The unique feature of this waterfall is the horseshoe shape of the cliff from which the water falls. The waterfall gets its name Gokak because of the abundance of Goki trees in this area. Gokak is surrounded on one side by a range of hills, and on the other side by a vast plain of black soil. Belgaum The river Ghataprabha flows from the north side of the city and cascades down through a cleft of 167 ft, to form Gokak Falls before flowing through the town.

The river Markandeya, a tributary of the Ghataprabha, dashes down through 43 ft step wise hill plates to form Goduchinamalaki Falls. Gokak is a place of philosophical and historical significance.
