The falls could be quite pretty, but there are too many tourists and the place has become a complete mess, full of noise and garbage!

After taking the road where the BSNL office is present you walk n then take a right turn to go these falls, which in itself is not so impressive. But then you can laze with ur feet in the water pool and then make a trek to the top which is challenging but worthwhile.

When you will enter in Kodaikanal, Bear Shola Falls is the first tourist point. At our visit fall was a live means water was dropping to earth. However this is not a perfect fall for bathing as it is rather dangerous but a nice spot for photography. Overall a good visit.

The road leading to Bear Shola falls is a stone throw away from the Hotel we were put up at - Stony Kraft Hotel. The walk along this road all the way to the falls is many proportions better than the falls itself. No water there even though it rained the day before. But I am not complaining at all.... More

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.
