Kailasakona waterfalls(Kona falls) are a natural perennial waterfall in the valley of Nagari Hills in Chittoor District. The water originates from a split in the mass rock. The water here is crystal clear having considerable mineral values. There is a small temple of Lord Shiva and Parvati near the waterfall. It is said that the water here, has some medicinal powers and can heal ailments.
The foot of the waterfall can be reached even by car, which is something unusual at most of the places.
