The water comes from Onakanahalli tank which is located in the vicinity of the waterfall. A distinct specialty of the place is that the valley in which the waterfall is located has been formed due to encircling of two distinct hill ranges.

Visitors can be seen testing their swimming skills in a small pond which has been formed at the base of the waterfall. Considering the fact that the depth of the pond is safe enough for venturing into water, large number of swimming enthusiasts make it a point that they cool off their heels in the pond water, whenever on a visit to the waterfall.
