The Ethipothala Waterfalls lies around 11 km from Nagarjuna Sagar Dam on the Chandravanka River which is a tributary of Krishna River. Located about 160 km from famous city Hyderabad. The scenic location of the falls in the delightful valley makes it one of the most sought after picnic spots in Andhra Pradesh. It is indeed a treat to watch the waters gushing down at high speed from Chandravanka Mountains which lies at an elevation of 70 feet.
You can see the water fall from a table land on the other side. You can even go on the hill from where the water flows down. After flowing for about 3 kms, this stream again joins River Krishna. Nagarjunasagar Dam and Nagarjunakonda are top tourist attractions in Andhra Pradesh, located close to Ethipothala Waterfalls. Both of them are popular sightseeing and weekend vacations destinations, located at a convenient distance form Hyderabad.
There are two temples at the foot of the waterfall, dedicated to Ranganadha Swami and Dattatreya Swami. As these temples are situated in the beautiful valley, you have to get down a few steps to visit these temples. You can also see some small caves besides the waterfall. People say and believe that these caves lead the way to Srisailam, the abode of Bhramarambika Mallikarjuna Swami. The tranquil atmosphere in which the waterfall is situated gives you a pleasant experience of your visit.
