Wow those who defy nature, here perceive nature, trust me its heavenly for me at least. Got to be damn very careful taking baths, showers or venturing inside the rocks. The top most is even more dangerous. One slip and its rocks again beneath with gushing water falls.

The facilities over here are very poor....we have started to the falls from Tirupati which is around 65kms....its best to take some food as parcel from Tirupati itself ...as u dont find any good restaurants or hotels nearby the falls...the hard part is to walk for about 2kms to reach the falls...and near the falls beware of the mischeivious monkeys....they keep on attacking people ...
Coming to the falls the safety measures are very poor there are incidents where some college students have accidentally slipped down ...and due to damage of the protective grill they have fallen from such a height and lost their lives...just beware and njoy !!!!

We are 3 people left from chennai by road via tada, kalahasti. It is a 4 hr drive and we reached there by 7.30 pm. The climate was too cool and it was dizzling all the night. We have been accommodated at TTD guest house (rate per day 250/- per room) and morning we went for trekking. After entering in to the forest we have stopped at a place and walked to see a terriying tree which was 300 years old. Then we still went deep into the forest following the water and saw a small water falls.
Returned back and started you journey to waterfalls. The falls are really good and water was falling from a long ht. fortunately we have found one way beside the falls and trekked for abt 30 mins on the hills to reached the top of the hill. Guys plz dont miss this part.

Talakona waterfalls is a tall waterfall 50 kms from Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. It is highest in AP, one of the highest in India. Standing right below the falls, water pouring from top pinches like a pin, but the pleasure is difficult to describe.

About 2kms of walking is required from parking area. Hardly any restaurants/rest rooms available in the area.

Local community people are maintaining a guest house, where one can stay and have food. If you're visiting there in morning half, you can order food there, come back from falls and have your food here, which is fairly decent. Otherwise do carry your food.

If you can trek a bit, it is possible to go to top of the hill and get scenic view of the location.

There is a second scenic waterfalls in Talakona, not accessible to tourists. A bit of extra trekking with help of local guides can take you there.

Be careful about Monkeys.

A vehicle entry fee of Rs 50 applies to cars. Open to public from 9AM to 6PM
