The Iruppu Falls is situated amidst lush green Western Ghats in the Kodagu district in Karnataka on the Brahmagiri hills. This waterfall is located about 50 kms from Madikeri and 20 kms from Nagarahole National Park. The River Lakshmana-tirtha flows nearby which joins the Kaveri river.
This waterfall is also known as Lakshmana teertha falls. There is also a temple dedicated to Sri Ram, surrounded by paddy fields, from where it is a climb up to the falls through natural forest. The Brahmagiri peak and a place called Pakshi Patala are also situated near Iruppu Waterfalls.
