“Nice place if you”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

There was not much rain in Bangalore in recent season so we were not expecting a huge fall there. But still I found view of falls is good. However there are not much place to sit under a shelter and enjoy the nature (specially required if you visit Shivsamundram on a sunny day like we did). Also one can’t go much down there because of fencing. Roads towards Shivasamundram are good and place is easily approachable. If weather is good, it can be a very nice place for small picnic. Eatables are available there on decent rates and not overpriced.

“Amazing Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Get closer to Nature, not only awesome place for sight seeing, but also if you go a bit down stream, you can enjoy playing in the water fall. Amazing and a wonderful experience.
A must watch place if you are planning to visit around Bangalore.
