6. Kunchikal Falls

This huge waterfall is perhaps the ugliest fallout of a nation that doesn’t believes in maintaining records and promotion of the same. Located in the beautiful district of Satara amidst the Western Ghats which features some of India’s most amazing waterfalls, it is nowhere mentioned as one of the tallest falls in India except by certain bloggers who have an eye for records and details. As with most falls in India the height remains unverified but nonetheless the one that is doing the rounds and a general look at the height qualifies it to be between 300 to 350 m. Wikipedia quotes the height at 500 m.
10. Bishop and Beadon Falls

There is another falls known as the Beadon Falls here which is often said to be the twin falls of the Bishop Falls, as both of them fall into the same gorge.
