When I was preparing list of waterfalls in Gujarat, I came to know about Jodiya waterfalls, Bilpudi, Dharampur. At that time,  Bilpudi waterfalls were unknown to most people. Little did I know they would turn out as major attraction in monsoon 2016.

Bilpudi waterfalls are origin of Swargvahini River, which passes through Dharampur town.

Updating this article with good photos and more details to help out travelers.
