I travelled there June 13, 2015. Had a very good experience. Plenty of water flow falling in multiple branches so there was no ugly and stressful competition for a spot which is the case with Kuttalam Falls. I did not notice any indecent behavior from the males. Certainly there are no restrooms in sight nearby which was the only negative... More

I head from the driver that the water in the falls is always there and never goes off, so it was amazing for the dip in the scorching heat. The public are the nuisance spoiling the place. Though there are sections for women and men, people still misbehave and there is no one to handle situation there.

It is a small waterfall during summer and becomes grand during monsoon and afterwords. Visited here so many times, you can take bath & walk above the falls to enjoy the surroundings during summer. And can relax on the small rocky islands by enjoying the surroundings with the noise of water (not possible during monsoon and post monsoon period). And... More

Takes 1.5 hours to get here from Kanyakumari by car. It is 300 ft long and 50 feet high. The Kodayar river descends here after it is controlled by a dam. Many people with small children were bathing here. The water ran over a huge rocky platform where one could wade through. Visiting time is 7:00AM to 6:00 PM. My... More

The approach to the fall was so narrow and crowded and the facility for issuing entree tickets was disorganised. Thereafter the pathway right up to the falls was occupied by ladies washing and drying their clothes. We had to choose to stay and watch from a distance and couldn't get our hands or feet wet. Right in front of the... More

When we reached there, to our surprise the water flow was huge even in April end. The location is very good and it is a place to enjoy. The place is poorly maintained by the local authorities. There is no nearby hotels, please plan accordingly.
