the waterfall is quite close the the city. once your reach, the cars aren't allowed all the way in. you need to trek for 1km-ish to get to the falls. poorly maintained but otherwise a nice spot in kodaikanal.

We visited this place previous week, water flow is very less at this time, you can get in to it. But one side of water is dirty. You can climb this falls a side to reach the top.

A bit of a hike on uneven path. The falls has a pool if you are brave enough totake a dip in the cold water. Bring your own towels and plan to change in public. It can be quite crowded. They say it is a picnic spot but don't plan on it. Really no place for it.

Good place with the sound of birds, but should walk a bit. One more issue is it wont be flooded with water always. it depends on the climate. but if you get opportunity, do visit this place.

These falls are located deep inside the jungle and the 500m walk towards it is via a dense forest. The fall is not visible right till the end of the road - you see it only after taking the last turn. But then it is worth it. You can get down under it and have a nice refreshing bath (of... More
