It is the highest waterfall in the state of Andhra Pradesh with a height of 147 feet (45 meters).According to the popular and prevalent local belief Kuntala Waterfall got its name after Shakuntala, the beloved wife of King Dushyanth; the pair fell in love with each other and were mesmerized by the scenic beauty of the surroundings. The locals also believe that Shakuntala used to bathe by the waterfall.

    Had an awesome time with all of you! It was my comeback to GHAC and had apprehension about how the organizers would be. But I must say, both Vivek and Smruti did a good job. Special thanks to Mohan, even though I did not have much interaction with him, both me and Reshu had lot of laughs because of him.
