What Makes It Awesome
The Lingmala waterfalls, apart from being a joy to capture on the camera, also make for a fun day out. If you’re staying in Mahabaleshwar, then make a quick trip here with your gang.
The waterfall is situated at an altitude of 1,278 metres, and fall from a height of approximately 600 feet. Formed by the river Venna at the base, these falls come crawling down into the valley full of greenery, and are split in two parts: the major waterfall and a mini waterfall. The mini waterfall is suitable for swimming, and photo opportunities (though we highly recommend caution, especially during the monsoon).
The waterfall gets a major tourist traction – and though is a popular spot – is not always crowded. These majestic waterfalls (the big and the mini one) make for a picturesque vacation.
