“Wow what a view.”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

The green meadows beckon the weary traveler. though one has to climb a whole lot of stairs to reach the falls, it is well worth it. Wish the falls and the lake catchment had some rainfall which has been delayed this June.

“lovely place”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

scenic beauty was great. One had to go down a lot of steps to reach the water fall...hence climbing up while returning might be a little tedious for the people who has breathing problem.....the fall is beautiful. One should also be very careful of the monkeys as they snatch packets from ur hands!!!

“Terrific scenery”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The walk down to the Pykara Falls is really good. You will enjoy the scenery. Time your visit based on the season, as there might not be too much water in the falls if you visit during off season. But, the view is beautiful, nevertheless.
Boating at Pykara Lake might seem costly to you. But it is worth it as the scenery surrounding you is amazing. if we are going on a trip, we should be ok to shell out some money to enjoy certain things. I paid 20 rupees for the Ooty to Coonoor train ride that lasted more than an hour, but had to pay 600 rupees for using the speed boat for 10 minutes at Pykara Lake. Overall, both were terrific experiences for the family.

“Falls--worth the trek”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

there is a slight track & heavy walking. But children & elderly can do it easily. More than the falls, I enjoyed the river scene. It was peaceful & beautiful with green carpet all around the river edge. the falls weren't as high as I had expected. But it was beautiful & gorgeous.
