You can find falls only during rainy season... No proper road to lead to the falls... its just few pieces of rocks if its not a rainy season.

The way to bear shola falls is the main adventure and clicking pictures there is very much liked. Weather of kodaikanal is already so much awesome that everytime you will feel like in heaven.

Nothing there.. Narrow roads. Kodai is a nightmare. Avoid this falls.. Nothing of importance. Better falls on the way to Kodai itself.

Probably the time of the visit was wrong to see the falls, in general it doesn't make sense to do so in summer, good location and can forsee it will be beautiful during fag end of monsoon

There is no water at all in this falls!! There is also no proper parking facility for vehicles, nor any proper guidance signs. So it is better not to go to this location.

We wasted out time by going to this place. Difficult to reach this place as there is no proper road, surroundings are dirty and more than not much water and not a good waterfall to visit. Not worth visiting.

These Falls are very difficult to access as they are a short walk away from the end of a narrow road in a residential area. What was worse was that beyond a point, the place was overgrown with vegetation spelling absolute neglect by the authorities. The Falls were bone dry and a few hooligans were howling somewhere on the other... More
