This waterfall is very lovely and here there is no season but best time is monsoon time. The authorities made separation in the waterfall for ladies and families, if needs we can use it. Also many locations at the top of waterfalls used for many old Tamil films. Every one will enjoy the sound and velocity of water.

It sounds perfectly lovely. Unfortunately that is not the case. It is horribly crowded and people from adjoining places throng to the falls and bathe fully clothed while further upstream, folks feel free to take a piss or wash their clothes. There are a few rickety rides but we would not risk the health of our children by allowing them... More

Visit this falls sometime during July-august when the monsoon begins, there is water gushing in at brilliant speeds and one can enjoy bathing in the water for hours. the water does'nt fall from great heights so the force of the water is enjoyable. The bhajjis sold outside are amazing after a long hour bathing in the water.

Less pollution Not much crowd Best falls compared to kourtalam Not much space for dressing room The road route to falls is not that good. Padmanabha palace and Mathoor Thottipalam are places for near by visit.

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.
