Agumbe is a small hill village with very limited visitor accommodation. It is located in Shimoga district, Thirthahalli taluk, Karnataka, India. It is sometimes called “The Cherrapunji of the South” in Northeast India. Agumbe is associated with rainforest conservation efforts, documentation of medicinal plants, tourism (trekking and photography), and promotion of cottage industry. Agumbe lies in a hilly, wet region of the Western Ghat mountains. This geography contributes to its scenery, suitability for trekking, leech infestation and motor vehicle accidents. In addition, there are a number of waterfalls in the locality (Barkana falls, Onake Abbi falls, Koodlu Theertha falls,Sunset point).
