the site is not so well maintained and the waterfall in February wasn't too impressive. Iruppu waterfall by Kutta is more interesting

It was close to an hour's ride one way from Talguppa and a trek of 1/2 km downwards - slippery incline terrain to reach this place. The lush greenery on both sides with the roar of the falls...
