For sportifs and nature lovers, a nice walk for a day in Rio Chilar to explore the nature and to arrive to the waterfall. Of course you need good shoes for this exploring tour, it will be good to inform you in the tourist office.

Unfortunately right at the top! There are a few small waterfalls on the way but these are just ornamental.
