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 »
This place in Theni district, technically in dindugal district is a famous place for tourists. This place has an entrance board 8 km before mentioning whether there is water flow or not 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.
Such a beautiful and lovely falls, best to go between July to December. Recently the maintenance has been really good. There is changing rooms for women. Must visit place.please don't spoil the beautiful place by throwing plastic waste and shampoo packet
