This waterfall begins from a small pond where the water of Malapahaari River is collected. Later, the pond water merges with Tunga River while crossing the valley. Over the years, water going through this region carved a 50 feet deep cave and, now, the water flowing in Jogigundi Falls passes through this cave.
Jogigundi Falls is situated approximately 3 km from Agumbe; 3/4th of the total distance can be covered on a vehicle, while the rest has to be trekked. The locals believed that a jogi (saint) used to meditate inside the cave that is located in the proximity of the fall and thus named it Jogigundi Falls.
