Reach: There aren't much of public transport available to reach this place. From the nearby bus station, share autos are available to take you to the Tada forest entrance (rarity). I would strongly recommend own vehicle. Bike or car would be the more convenient option to reach Tada, that too luxury cars cannot get through the uneven terrain.The falls is... More

We will have to walk around 1.5 kms to go to a lake like area where the... More

Very nice place for trekking, would advise you to reach there early 8 or 9am, carry small bag, snacks and water bottle. Be careful when you claim the rocks. Avoid taking family in week days.

Nothing much of a locale... the place is dirty as a whole with a lot of littering of plastic and booze bottles. Forget going with your family..
