If you're sightseeing in the area add this to your itinerary. After the rains I'm sure this waterfall is quite spectacular, in Nov not so much to see. Still great views of the mountains and valley. As is a tourist attraction be prepared for the tourist tac stalls and pesky macaques, look cute but can be aggressive if you've got... More

Stunning views and scenery. Definitely worth a visit especially if you come from a built up area. I actually live in the Lake District in the UK so I am spoilt on a daily basis. That said it was still breath taking.

There are 2 viewing platforms, one at car park level and the other via some stairs. Great views from both. Worth a visit.

Our tour to the South included the Chamarel waterfall and the colored earth. The waterfall is in 2 vertical drops into the deep crater below. Its a peaceful place with lush greenery around and good photo opportunities. There are 2 viewing points - one at the car park level and the other at a higher level through a roughly hewn... More

I love nature! And this waterfall was really beautiful. Not as impressive as Victoria and Niagara falls, but the view around the waterfall add to its beauty!

In India, we have such waterfalls every 100 kms.... Sheer nonsense.... Not worth a watch at all.... Actually a pure wastage of time....

Such a wonderful view and you can see rainbows at the bottom of the waterfall when the sun is in the right place. There are two differant viewing platforms and hotels put on tours to bring people here- we hired a car and it was easy to find.

It was well worth the £3 entry fee to drive to the view point of this 100m waterfall that resembles Angel Falls. Single columns of water drop the full length uninterrupted. We were glad we had walked up the steps to e higher viewpoint to get a full view of the whole waterfall. Simply a stunning piece of nature.

The waterfall is worth seeing especially with visits to other sites. The coloured sands are included in the ticket price. It's quite impressive, more so if it had rained. There are 2 viewing points. The car park level has a board showing the layers over the 3 periods. The steps up to the upper level are uneven but not too... More
