Yana Caves & Vibhuti Falls

Deep rainforests of Karnataka
1/5

What if we tell you that you can visit three incredible locations of Karnataka within a weekend from Mumbai/Pune? These rock cave, waterfall and fort are admired by all travelers in India.

Yana is known for the two unusual karst rock formations composed of solid black, crystalline karst limestone. The place and surrounding hillocks are known for the rainforests.

Vibhuti falls is a surreal waterfall located in the deep forest of Western Ghats. According to local legends, it was formed when ashes from the burning of demon Basmasur had to be washed away.

Mirjan fort is located on the banks of the Aghanashini River. The fort is known for its architectural elegance and it was the location of several battles in the past.
