  • It seems to be a seasonal waterfalls. When were there on June 2nd 2019, there was no water. View is fine . Some small stream was flowing. It is just before kolukkumalai jeep safari point.  more »

  • Great place if you want to spend some time in peace
  • Beautiful waterfalls. We were lucky that there were almost nobody on the day we visited the falls. There was good water flow, we were not able to bath but the nature was so beautiful in this area, the other side of the hill full of tea estates. You must stop here to behold the beauty. The only problem if the falls is crowded with people parking gets an issue since the road is too narrow.
