Waterfall · Nature / Park
Kumbakkarai Falls are lesser known falls in the foothills of the Kodaikanal Hills. They are located at 10°10′48″N 77°31′50″E in Dindigul district, 9 kilometers (5.6 mi) from Periyakulam. Kumbakkarai Falls are located along the Kodai-Vellagavi-Periyakulam footpath.

These falls have two stages. At the first stage, water collects in huge rock recesses which are each named after wild animals such as tiger, elephant, snake etc. The Pambar river then flows .5 km (0.31 mi) to the second stage before falling as the main waterfall.

The water originates in Kodaikanal Hills and flows along the rocks and finally reaches the foot hills. This place is called Kumbakarai. The travellers come here and take bath in the falls. The water flows throughout the year; but in rainy seasons the flow will be very heavy. Bathing is possible. There is a bus from Periyakulam with fare of Rs. 5 (6AM,7AM,1PM,3.30PM,4.30PM). There is no guest house.

  • We were there during May 2019. Heavy crowed but not good water flow. Need an improvement with dress changing room and other amenities.  more »

  • It is a great place to enjoy nature as it is. Icy cold water runs in the falls and beats down upon you to give you a sensational experience that thrills your veins. Go here and definitely stand under the falls to experience the force of nature. There are good changing rooms for ladies and restroom facilities for all.
