These waterfalls are naturally borned by the attachments of hills and their curves. Best enjoyable place near tirupati for youngsters and family teens to enjoy. Food was available sometimes near here by small shopkeepers.

Ladies or couples have to take care from these people. As no single security is available there. Bring food along as there are no hotels to eat lunch. Dress... More
