Muktihole is a lovely, cascading waterfall situated in the heart of the dense forests in Western Ghats. There are motorable roads up till Hirebailu which is accessible by bus from Hadinabala. From Hirebailu, get set for a strenuous trek up till the falls. The path is muddy and is for the most part covered with thick undergrowth.

There is also ample opportunity to indulge in your wild side by going rock climbing in these parts. There are innumerable natural pools of fresh mountain water here, to go for a leisure swim, whenever you want. Muktihole, in short is a trekker's paradise and is a truly exhilarating experience by itself!
