Geologists indicate that formerly there was greater rainfall in this area and that the Kukadi River flowed out from the highlands with such force that scouring of the bedrock took place and resulted in the formation of these potholes and the gorge. The same kind of formation in larger scale is there at ” Bhedaghat” in Madhya Pradesh on River Narmanda.
The water flow of Kukadi River is minimum in summer [March to May] which is best time to visit this Nature’s Gem. There is beautiful bridge and temple of Goddess Malganga on the bank of river.
