Best place to enjoy with friends & family But top level bathing to be avoided as the same water is being used by all travellers in falls, dirty water is coming down sometimes.

We enjoyed this place, Kids also enjoyed the place,Please be careful while entering the falls as most of the visitors leave small Soaps at the edge and this can be slippery. Overall a very good place to spend 2 hours its worth a visit

Beautiful surroundings but not well maintained. When we visited it was over crowded and there was a lot of chaos. Visit only if you have free time.

This falls is not a natural falls but made from a diversion. People visiting this falls take a bath and make the whole place dirty. Stinking restrooms.

It could have been a nice place if people did not turn into a open bathroom. In Dec you cannot walk there without rubbing your body with someones bare and wet body. Yuke :-(
