  • 4 months ago There's a lot of restaurants at the entrance.. A few metres in you'll find battery cars ready to take you to the waterfall or you can simply walk while enjoying the hills. The waterfall itself is beautiful during the rains(July), that's when I went there. Enjoy a hot cup of tea and the just take in the view of the lake and beside it, Pykara Falls. You can't take bath here. Its just a view point. To reach this falls you have to walk half a kilometer in the steps. The way is full of scenery. Unfortunately there is no water on my visit. Nice to spend time here. The place is good and well maintained by the respective govt dept. Battery car was there but when I went it was not operational. If they had more battery cars it would be really good especially for senior citizens.
  • The place is maintained well, be it the cleanliness and security. There was good flow of water when we visited here in the month of December. The sound of the falls was calming and relaxing! Also there are many stalls outside for snacks and even meals. There were also batter operated cars to help people avoid walking a certain distance to the falls. Overall the place was a good place to visit!
