  • Great place if you want to spend some time in peace
  • Beautiful waterfalls. We were lucky that there were almost nobody on the day we visited the falls. There was good water flow, we were not able to bath but the nature was so beautiful in this area, the other side of the hill full of tea estates. You must stop here to behold the beauty. The only problem if the falls is crowded with people parking gets an issue since the road is too narrow.
  • Beautiful waterfall we see this on the way to Munnar. It's really beautiful stop your vehicles for few minutes and see definitely you'll get a refreshing your mind.
  • This place is on the way to the club Mahindra mount serene. On our way, the road was under construction and hence there was a traffic block for over half an hour. This place is surrounded by beautiful tea estates. Right opposite down on the left is the Tata tea estates, if you can find someone who is authorized to take you inside, you may request them a tour in the tea gardens. Worth a visit.
  • Nice waterfalls. One of the best waterfalls in idukki munnar
