I visited this place while our stay at Kanyakumari. The falls is around 60kms away from Kanyakumari town and the roads were terrible. It is an unkempt falls emanating foul smell, with almost no family activities or decent eating options nearby. There were very few other visitors except some local youngsters bathing. I visited this place upon reading travel reviews,... More

1. Wonderful place to enjoy for couple of hours. Little far and one require a vehicle to reach and not sure about public transport. 2. Separate bath area for both men and women, but there is no change room available for women. 3. Children play area is also available.

Averagely Maintained, there is a entry fee of 5INR per person, there is a fee for cameras. In the past We use to walk above the water falls, there was a small dam, now there is... More

I found it very far to access and the roads were broken in most places. We reached at abt 5 pm and it was getting cold to take bath but we clicked some nice snaps.

But all that will be gone once u get into the water.. There are 2 steps of water fall and can enjoy with family and friends. It's a perfect... More
