This is one of the best water falls in Coorg. Here we can get in to water and in the top of the falls we can see big lake. Little far from city. Not much improved. Parking has a problem sometimes.

Falls are beautiful. The amount of water is also Good. 1) It is located around 60KMs from Madikeri. So leave early. 2) No entry Fees. 3) Swimming is prohibited. Maybe due to some accidents. 4) Place is not maintained properly. 5) Visit early to this place and then if possible YOU can plan a Trek to Brahmagiri Hills.

There are a lot of hang around places near the water falls and also the way to reach it requires quite a bit of trekking and is narrow. Prefer visiting just after monsoons. The place can be crowded at times.

Visited the falls on the way to kabbe hills as part of jeep safari. Beautiful drive through the misty hills and the views of the falls from afar are beautiful. The falls were in good form in December it was a pleasant experience.

Far from the town Madikeri, still tourists venture out to see the falls, making it a putt off.. Approach to the waterfalls not good at all, I wish Coorg authorities does something, rocky path which we could manage but there was a lady who found it so difficult.. even the trail does not have any railing to hold on to,...

The road leading there is very bumpy . After getting down from car one has to trek for 5 min to reach the waterfall (elderly folks be careful). The waterfall is beautiful n dangerous so no one is allowed to enter waters or fool around there. Must visit place
