These falls are located in the Brahmagiri Range, bordering the Wayanad district of Kerala. It is a major tourist attraction as well as a pilgrimage spot. Also known as the Lakshmana Tirtha Falls, it derives its name from the tributary of Cauvery which starts from these falls. According to popular legend, Rama and Lakshmana, passed along the Bhramagiri range whilst searching for Sita. When Rama asked Lakshmana to fetch him drinking water, Lakshmana shot an arrow into the Brahmagiri hills and brought into being the Lakshmana Tirtha river. Due to this legend, the waterfall is believed to possess the power to cleanse sins and is visited by thousands of devotees on Shivaratri day. A famous Shiva temple, the Rameshwara Temple is situated on the banks of the Lakshmana Tirtha River, en route to the falls. A forest trail leads from these falls to the Brahmagiri Peak in Southern Kodagu.

Professional rafting organizations conduct training & rafting trips in the Barapole river and also provide other adventure activities such as Zipline, etc.
