Since it involves a walk for some distance, one should go only when fall has good water lest it is a wastage of effort.

Wow those who defy nature, here perceive nature, trust me its heavenly for me at least. Got to be damn very careful taking baths, showers or venturing inside the rocks. The top most is even more dangerous. One slip and its rocks again beneath with gushing water falls.

Talakona waterfalls is a tall waterfall 50 kms from Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. It is highest in AP, one of the highest in India. Standing right below the falls, water pouring from top pinches like a pin, but the pleasure is difficult to describe. About 2kms of walking is required from parking area. Hardly any restaurants/rest rooms available in the area.... More

Talakona is the highest waterfall in the Andhra pradesh state. Surrounded by dense sandalwood and other trees this place is amazing. It does gets crowded by noon but morning/evening is a good time to enjoy (there are hardly any people around that time). The waters of Talakona are enriched with herbs and people believe that it has healing properties and... More
