you will have to walk close to half a km and you will find very less water during summer. If you carrying kids and going with elders, this might not be the place. During rainy season and post that, there should be more water.

Disappointing, especially the appalling amount of rubbish. It wasa lovely walk through the forest but stop before you get to the "falls".

we drove all the way to see the falls but unfortunately there was nothing to see. due to the recent dry weather and lack of rains, there was no water. please check before you head off to see the falls. we visited in February.

The falls is in its full glory during monsoons. This is a small but scenic waterfall. The pathway to the fall is well laid between two small hills. You can stand real close to the waterfall or sit on one of the many rocks and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. A "must see" place.

zero maintenance, secluded and no water (what falls). Please give this place a miss when you visit Kodaikanal. Its a waste of time and effort to be here. You will not even want to walk on the pathway that leads to this so called fall and the you will see a trickle of water falling down in a nallah.........

This is not a massive waterfall. Its a small and beautiful fall. One has to walk for approx.5 mins to reach the fall.
