Lingamala Waterfalls is located between Mahabaleshwar and Pune.
First of all, let’s talk about the water level, which is nearly 500 feet from the cliff. Now, that’s some serious height, and it’s no wonder that the falls appear ideal during the rainy season when the area is flooded with water. But don’t worry, you can visit here throughout the year, and the view is still going to be splendid.
There are two waterfalls at this site, and the first one is a mini waterfall, which is suitable for swimming and playing around since it is very safe. From the mini waterfall, one has to walk for about 30 minutes to reach the main waterfall, which falls from a height of 500 feet. And let me tell you, the view is absolutely fantastic. You can enjoy the magnificent view of the falls using the excellent and broad paved pathway made by the local council. It’s very clean, non-slippery, and you don’t have to worry about nasty bumps.
Now, here’s the funny part – if you’re not in the best shape, the trek to the lower deck can be tiring. But don’t worry, you can always take a break, enjoy the misty atmosphere due to clouds and the waterfall gushing down, and catch your breath before continuing the trek.
The best time to visit the Lingmala Falls is from July to October when the waterfall is at its peak flow, and the sights are the most beautiful and enjoyable. However, avoid swimming in the waterfall during the rainy season as it can be dangerous.
And guess what, the entry fee is just INR 15. That’s right, you read it correctly. Just INR 15, and you get to witness this magnificent wonder of nature.
And if you’re wondering how to get here, don’t worry. The Lingmala Waterfalls is just 6 kilometres away from the Mahabaleshwar Bus Stand, and you can hire a cab or take a bus from there to reach your destination.
But wait, that’s not all. Dhobi Waterfall and Chinaman’s waterfall are situated quite close to Lingmala Waterfalls. Other than the falls, one can visit the Mahabaleshwar Point, Venna Lake (which is filled by Lingmala Falls itself), Wilson Point (Sunrise Point), Sunset Point, Babington Point, Mapro Garden, Mahabaleshwar and Krishnai Temple, Kate’s point, Arthur’s seat, Pratap Singh Park, and Pratapgad Fort.
All residing within the radius of 10 km or less. So, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags, get ready for an adventure, and head out to the Lingmala Waterfall. You won’t regret it!
