Duduma falls, originating from River Machhakunda, is also known as Matsya Tirtha. The main source of water for the Machhakunda hydro-electric project, this waterfall is flooded with tourist all the year round. It came into highlight in 1941, when the research to establish a power plant began.

This is one among the highest waterfalls in South India and derived its name from the nearby pilgrim town of ‘Matsya Kunda’. This horsetail shaped waterfall is 157 metrers in height and becomes monstrous during the monsoon season. Though one can not go up to the waterfall, trolley rides are available at the hydel plant.

The areas around the Duduma fall have been the home of the indigenous tribe- Bondas. A scenic town called Onukudelli has been fostered around the waterfall.

The nearest airport for the waterfall is at Vishakhapatna (200 kms). The town of Koraput is 92 kms from here. The waterfall is located ay jeypore, which is 570 kms from Rourkela. One can easily reach the waterfall from Vishakhapatnam through a cab or a bus.
