Sabitham Waterfalls

The waterfall in Sabitham village in Peddapalli is drawing hundreds
of people everyday

Located in a thick forest and surrounded by hillocks, the waterfall in the Sabhitam village in Peddapalli mandal is drawing huge crowds this monsoon season, but crying for attention from the district authorities.

This small waterfall in this tiny village located about 45 km from the district headquarters on the Peddapalli-Manthani road attracts lot of visitors from July to November when the rains lash the region. The overflowing water from the Gattusingaram hillocks turns into waterfall at the Gauri Gundala, as the locals call it.

The water plummets from a height of nearly 100 feet on the rocks, attracting visitors in the rainy season. Recently, Minister for Finance and Civil Supplies Etala Rajender, Peddapalli legislator D. Manohar Reddy, Collector Neetu Prasad also visited the spot.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister assured the villagers that the waterfalls would be developed into a tourist spot by providing amenities such as roads, sheds, and toilets. With people from far and wide visiting the spot in large numbers, local traders selling food items are doing roaring business. The visitors are of the opinion that the waterfall should be linked with the adjoining historic Ramagiri hillocks so that its tourism potential is increased.

Village sarpanch Chandashankar said that during holidays more than 4,000 tourists are visiting the spot. On regular days, around 400 to 500 visitors are visiting the spot. He said the road from the village to waterfall was very slushy due to rains and urged the authorities to blacktop it for the benefit of tourists.
