Located in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, the 82-meter high Talakona Waterfalls is one of the tallest waterfalls in India. The fall is located at the upper parts of the Seshachalam Hills.
This, in fact, is reflected in the word Talakona that comes from two Telugu words, Tala and Kona, meaning the head and the hill, respectively. Located close to the city of Tirupati, famous worldwide for its Sri Venkataswera Temple, the falls have come to bear religious significance as well. Many devotees visit the site all year round to seek blessing of the Lord Venkateshwara, a deity enjoying great prestige in the Southern India. However, the site is just as alluring to trekkers and adventure seekers in general.
There are many trek routes that lead to the falls and all of these trails pass through densely wooded forests and no matter what route you take, you will come across several mountain caves on your way to the falls.
