Beautiful...

The fall is really big and it is a three step fall. You can capture the glimpse of the fall from 3 different platforms/height.

We have visited this place where a number of water falls are cascading down under against the backdrop of fantastic greenery.For reaching the place we had to climb down a good number of stone stairs which really tasted our physical fitness.We reached the second level walking down over 2 bridges.The view below the bridge was spectacular where the water flows...

We entered the main gate with lot many apprehensions in our mind. We were greeted with a waterfall on the right hand side and the gurgling water sounds in the ambiance. Moreover, it was drizzling, thankfully we had umbrellas :). Than lot many winding & twisting stairs led us to another waterfall, which we saw while walking on a bridge.... More

This is a waterfall that too you have to enjoy by going very down. It is a simple waterfall. Nature lovers shud definately go there.. Coming back you will find shops that charge a small amount and makes you dressed up in their styles.. must get clicked..

There are many falls. The big one you will find at the below the hill. You have to go down at the below of hill. Then you realize the beauty.

These were the only falls, during our trip in january, with the maximum amount of water. there are three falls in but the water bed is a far way down and the climb up the stairs can be very tiring. The water bed and third falls area is the best part of the falls though.

This place just has two miniscule waterfalls which is just OK in nature. The worst part is that you have to climb down about 150 uneven stairs just to get the glimpse of the water bed.

The scenic beauty with arrangement to seat in the serenity of nature. Though might not be very enjoyable for the travellers with pain in their knees as there are steps which leads you down about 300mtrs
