Basically a mountain stream, gushing down the hill, is what is called as Ethipothala Waterfalls. "Ethipothala" in Telugu means, "to lift and pour". Just about 11 kms from Nagarjuna Sagar, Ethipothala Waterfalls are formed from the combination of three streams Chandravanka Vagu, Nakkala Vagu and Tummala Vagu, all tributaries of River Krishna. The water at this point falls from a height of about 21 metres (about 70 feet) forming a small lake at its foot.
This lake has a crocodile-breeding centre managed by the Forest Department of Andhra Pradesh where you can see these water beasts from very close.
Spotted it myself last December !!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
