Syntheri Rock Overview

Ranked 2 of 14 sightseeing in Dandeli

Syntheri Rock is monolithic granite structure having a height of 300 ft, which is located in the dense Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary. The River Kaneri that flows at this place passes along the side of this rock. Owing to the flow of the river from the vicinity, erosion has resulted in the rocks getting hollowed. The corners of this rock cave are inhabited by numerous pigeons.

Hives of rock bees can be seen hanging from the camp of Kali wilderness, located nearby. The site can be reached either by jeep or by walking through the dense forest.

Good, requires lot of climbing stairs

It was a family trip thus the title. We enjoyed the flora and fauna of the area. The place is calm and serene. If you are in Dandeli, this place should be on your list.

Must visit place in Dandeli

Reached this place around 4:30 pm, the place is beautiful to see and photograph. We need to get down around 300 steps down to reach waterfall place. Worth going to see this place. Not good for aged one.

A unique nature spot

This place offers you knowledge about various types of rocks available around it. After climbing down several steps one can see a water body surrounded by big rocks which is a unique site.

Greenery around and go with grip shoes

Must visit place when you go to Dandeli, it has greenery all around one who goes there wishes to stay there for more and more time. Be careful if you are planning to get down into water, the force of flowing is too fast and is not advisable to get down into water or even near it. The place is very slippery so it's advised to wear a high grip shoes.

Rock formation in between the jungle

We visited Syntheri Rock in the evening. There is a 15-20 minutes walk from the vehicle parking to see the rock. The road towards this place is rocky, so one has to be careful. As we went in the summers there was not much of a water. The rock formation is something very unique. Good to visit the place.

Syntheri Rock - A small vertical hill

Huge rock!!! Looks like a small vertical hill actually with all birds perching on it! What is nice about a visit to this place is actually the VERY tall trees lined geologically enlightening walk down to the rock's bottom, and the water you find there!!!Dip your feet in the ice cold water after the 15 min trek to get there, and you will know what they mean when they say "to soothe the tired feet" :PDon't know if they actually say that. But go to the rock, shoot a movie or click away your camera, dip your feet in water, and treck your way back up! (the trees make you feel like lilliputs! )ADVICE: Start for the place in the afternoon! It gets very hot otherwise when you are trying to climb up the hill to get back to your vehicle! And carry loads of water!

Awesome Rocks

Be ready to descend around 200 steps to reach this beauty. Right through the descend get engaged with breathtaking visuals of the water gushing around the rocks.

Wonderful creation by nature

Syntheri rocks is a nice place to witness nature's creation. Its almost 300 ft high cliff with the water flowing down. Take care of yourself and don't do adventurous things unnecessarily during your visit. Kids will love this place.

Scenic but Dangerous

Swimming in this area is fatal. You could just wet your legs here. The view is very beautiful. You don't get food or there are no bathrooms or any rooms here.
