W e have to walk more to go that place, since vehicles are not allowed to that place. And there is very less water falls when we went there in May month. May be in rainy season the place may have more falls.

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
