You’ll be able to enjoy the beauty of the natural world along with its inhabitants and get a glimpse into their lives without having the distraction of excessive commercialization – just what is needed to appreciate the natural beauty around you genuinely.
The Wonder and Inspiration of Sai Radha Heritage
The Neighborhood Of Sai Radha Beach Resort
Udupi is a temple town in Karnataka, and it is the home of the Krishna mutt. The city gets its name from Udupi, which means the land of the “lord of the stars”-Moon. It used to be a significant cultural center of the region, and it was known as Rajatapeetha or silver throne. Udupi is also one of the seven places of pilgrimages for Hindus in India.
Famous for its scenic beauty, Kudumari falls located in Kundapura taluk of Udupi district. Making its way through the thickly wooded forests of the Western Ghats, the Aghanashini river flows and joins the Arabian Sea at Honnavar. This enchanting waterfall gushes down from a height of 300 meters and is a sight to behold. It is also one of the highest waterfalls in Karnataka.
The trek is quite adventurous, and you will get to witness breathtaking natural beauty during your journey. Furthermore, the falls are less frequented by tourists, and therefore, it is an ideal place to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The backwaters, along with their greenery, lush paddy fields, and palm trees, add to the beauty of this place.
The sunset at Sasthana Kodi backwaters is a spectacular sight. The water body is full of life like fishes, etc., and various birds can be seen here quite often.
Swarna river banks
Swarna is the river that flows through the heart of Udupi. It is one of the significant west-flowing rivers of Karnataka. This river has its origin in the western ghats of South Kanara and flows to the Arabian Sea.
