You can reach this place from two sides. Either from Kumata or sirsi. Best time to visit in rainy season. The roads to this place is so green and beautiful but one need to be careful while driving in rain.

Road from Kumta to Yana is very good. It is a single lane road but very well laid without any potholes. You will surely enjoy the drive.

From parking lot you have to walk 1km. Bath rooms are there near parking lot. Stone in falls is bit slipery. Life gourds will be there to assist.
