Benne Hole Falls This marvelous place is one among the numerous waterfalls (somebody said 18) in North Kanara. A tributary of the river "Aghanashini" by name 'beNNe hoLe'(hoLe is big stream in Kannada) flowing through the dense forests of the Devimane Ghats region of the Western Ghats falling from a height of about 200feet forms a spectacular visual treat(of course mental too).
On the way to Kumta from Sirsi after 21kms you get a small places called "Kasage". From here the waterfall is around 6kms away. Take the path which goes towards "Hosur" and up to Hosur it is a jeep track till the last house in Hosur. From here it is 2kms walk to the waterfall.
