All of these are located just a few km on either side of the NH 44 after crossing Nirmal and towards Adilabad. The majestic Kuntala is known as the largest waterfall in Telangana State with a drop of 40 meters and a width of over 100 meters. During a heavy spell of rain, a huge quantum of water flows over the entire width of the fall through a normal cascade that is restricted to the left and right flanks of this wonder of nature. Those who can afford more time on this leg of their visit can go to Adilabad district head quarter and proceed towards the Khandala valley, about 25 km away on the Ankoli Tantoli road. There are smaller waterfalls like the Kopengidi and the unusually long cascade of water over the hills called Dharloddi situated near the village with the same name.
