Pochera Waterfalls

Pochera Waterfalls are located at a distance of 37 km from Nirmal,

Hundreds of tourists from various parts of the State visiting the Pochera Waterfalls in Boath mandal which is known for its breathtaking natural surroundings are a scared lot these days because of illegal crusher blasts for granite stone in its adjoining area, barely ten km away.

The explosions are resulting in loss of greenery and beautiful sights nearby. Rocks are crashing into the waterfalls. The surrounding area is becoming increasingly dusty.

• Digging for granite has resulted in waterfalls becoming dry
• Explosions resulting in loss of beautiful sights nearby


NoC issued for setting up a stone crusher-cum-hot-mix plant just 200 metres away. An upcoming stone crusher cum hot mix plant located just 200 metres away from the pristine Pochera waterfall in Boath mandal threatens to engulf the nature's wonder as well as the wild fauna existing in its vicinity.
