“Not a Big falls but its beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

I am wring review only for Pykara falls as i already written the review for Pykara lake. Pykara Falls is before Pykara Lake (Pykara Boat house) if you are coming from ooty. You have to walk for around half kilometer to get into the falls. Falls is not much big but the scenic beauty is awesome. Falls is surrounded by deep forest and hills. If you are visiting ooty than you must visit this lovely place.

“Peaceful and Beautiful!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The place is peaceful and beautiful. Would suggest to avoid Ooty lake and visit Pykara instead. The waterfalls is a spectacular view, the trees around make it more beautiful.

“breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

A must visit place on any Ooty travelers itinerary. This place has such scenic beauty that you could actually spend the whole day there if one comes prepared for a picnic sit out.

“Nothing to see !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

We got really nothing to see here but a mudpool... Please check with some locals & confirm if there is enough water, before you go.
