Tourist Frenzy In Chikkamagaluru's Rani Jhari: Risky Photoshoot On Waterfall Edges Sparks Concerns (WATCH)


(MENAFN- AsiaNet News) In Karnataka's Chikkamagaluru, a growing trend of thrill-seeking behaviour is alarming locals. Tourists flocking to the scenic spots in Mudigere Taluk, especially near Bandaje, Rani Jhari, and Kodige Falls, are risking their lives for the perfect photo.

Recently, an incident near Rani Jhari has heightened these concerns. Visitors, ignoring numerous warnings, are seen sitting on the edge of the lattice, capturing photos in dramatic poses reminiscent of movie scenes. These locations, with falls ranging from 300 to 500 feet, pose a significant danger. A slight misstep can lead to fatal accidents, with falls from such heights almost guaranteeing death.

Chikkamagaluru's Mudigere Taluk is renowned for its picturesque tourist spots, but the ongoing madness is casting a shadow over its beauty. Authorities are urged to take stricter measures to ensure the safety of both tourists and the community.
