Didupe & Ermai
Didupe & Ermai Waterfall Trek
Didupe & Ermai waterfalls lies in the base of Charmadi Ghat ( Chikmagalur, Karnataka). Didupe falls is a stream of water falling from great height in one step and forms a decent pond structure in the base. Here, with little difficulty, you can go beneath the waterfall and take a good bath. If you would like to swim, can spend some time swimming too. Falling from a great height, the outpouring Didupe creates a pond structure in the base. You will find it difficult to resist yourself from jumping in. The pond at the base is not so deep and wide, so swimming in it is not so satisfactory. Ermai falls is multi level waterfalls and if you are little adventurous, then you can go into the natural carvings of the waterfall in the middle level and see the water falling in front of you. It is an amazing experience where you see waterfalls standing in the mid level.But to reach both the falls, you will be trekking for almost 15 KM in total. Also, the waterfall contains huge rock structure, which very slippery in every season except for summer.
