Tallest Waterfalls in India

India is the world’s biggest democratic country, with hundreds of tourist attractions and the majority of the country surrounded by natural variety. Some of India’s highest waterfalls may be found in Karnataka, Kerala, and Orissa. Kunchikal Falls, with a height of 455 meters (this waterfall is a Tiered Type), is India’s tallest waterfall. It is located in Karnataka’s Shimoga region.

The Western and Eastern Ghats ranges gave growth to rivers and the highest waterfalls, while the Himalayas have massive mountains and melting glaciers formed massive rivers. The Ganges is one among them, but the Himalayas also give rise to a number of rivers and waterfalls.
