  • Beautiful waterfalls... Should vist in mansoon season to see the real beauty. On the way to chinnakanal..
  • The falls is located on the way to munnar. Not a big one. But the location is ideal. Now road widening work is going on. So it is better to enquire the about timings of limited passage time
  • chinnakanal is ok not bad when i visited there was no water...very disoppinting....
  • The chinnakanal waterfall is super place but it's not familiar.This place is so beautiful and good to see.The touristers are comfortable on there because of that's the real beauty of nature. This place is ideal to visit in the monsoon season probably in june july. The sight of water gushing down is so cool to watch. Travel to this place in the week days as weekends seem a bit crowded. A very exciting place to hear the waterfall sound, have good photographs also. Played with water falls took a bath for long time took pictures, but should be little careful at this place, everything was superb enjoyed great moment of life. Must visit this place.
  • Good place, probably better waterfalls during rainy season.
