This a pretty little fall, and the walk is quite pleasant. Plan it for the morning when it's clear. We took a tuk tuk and the driver walked up with us and told us about the area. You'll pass tea plantations on the walk and bring a little money to tip tea pickers if you want to photograph them. They... More

We walked up to the waterfall from the town (easy to follow Google Maps through the outskirts of town. Nice area and we were all alone as it was raining cats and dogs! We could imagine the views on a sunny day must be pretty extraordinary. Not many indications when there, would have been nice to understand more.

Tuk yuk, took us the long way around. No need! Beautiful waterfall. Kids begged for money and threw sticks at me because I told them "no". Beautiful scenery, walked back the direct route by going on a narrower path down through some tea plantations and vegetable fields. Lovely!

Nice waterfalls, but there is no proper road to the same.Also, the tuk-tuk will only take you to a certain point, beyond that you need to walk.Advisable to go in groups and the place is not very safe for children (safety wise)

We took a tuk-tuk from Pedro Tea Factory and Plantation (750 Rupees return) to get to and from the falls. The is a little walk at the top and not too strenuous to get to the falls which are not that spectacular but nice to view as is the vista from the falls across the valley. Younger people walked up...

The waterfall itself isn't too special. Not much water in the dry season. The way to the waterfall is a quite nice walk through the tea fields. You also can combine your visit here with a tour at Pedro's tea factory.

A nice waterfall that actually provides drinking water to the town. Don't listen to the tuk tuk drivers on the main road, it's only about 1.8km to the waterfall (although the path is quite steep).
