Mulugu: Much to the delight of nature lovers and adventure tourists who are fond of the waterfalls, one more stunning waterfall, situated deep in the forest of Venkatapuram (Nugur) mandal of Mulugu district, has come to light recently, thanks to an expedition led by founder of Orugallu Wildlife Society (OWLS) Ch Shyam Sundar and three friends.

This beautiful waterfall, known as Vontimamidi lodhi or Ontimamidi lodhi waterfall, is located at Mangavaigudem, a small village of Koyas, 12 km from Venkatapuram mandal headquarter. Sharing his experience with Telangana Today, Shyam Sunder said one needs to trek for seven km to reach this new waterfall tucked away in the deep forest. “People who want to visit this waterfall must take the help of the local tribals as they are aware of the paths in the forest. The tourists must also be prepared to walk in knee-deep slush and through the slippery boulders carefully to reach to this ‘heaven on earth’,” Shyam Sunder said.

He said drops from a height of around 350 to 400 feet. Being a good photographer, Shyam Sundar clicked some beautiful pictures of the waterfall that was hidden in the forest all these years and known only to the local tribals. “Since it is located about 35 km from Bogatha waterfall, dubbed as Telangana’s Niagara, it can be developed into a major tourist spot in the future,” Shyam Sunder said, adding that there are three more waterfalls near the newly discovered waterfall. The four-member team led by Shyam Sunder reached the location after an arduous journey on July 25 this year.

Meanwhile, Kongala waterfalls, also known as ‘V-Falls’, near Kongala village in Wazeedu, and Mutyaladhara or Gaddalasari waterfall, located about nine km from Ramachandrapuram village on the way to Cherla from Pusuru in Venkatapuram, have begun attracting tourists of late. According to Dr Dyavanapalli Satyanarayana, a historian and explorer, the water falls from an estimated 700 feet height at Gaddalasari. If confirmed, this could be India’s third highest after the Nohkalikai falls (1,100 feet in Meghalaya) and Jog falls (Karnataka, 830 feet).
