The Pochera Waterfalls are the deepest waterfalls of the entire Telangana region. The holy River Godavari pivots through the mighty Sahyadri Mountain Range, and as it comes down, it divulges into smaller rivers. These rivulets flow alongside the River Godavari and converge to make the source of the magnanimous Pochera Falls. Tucked into thick foliage of tall and dense trees, these roaring waterfalls are secluded from the blaring noise and rising pollution of the nearby cities.
