Bear Shola Falls, Kodaikanal

#8 of 10 in Nature in Kodaikanal
Waterfall Nature / Park
Dip into the pool underneath Bear Shola Falls, a seasonal waterfall in a reserve forest that soars during the monsoon season. Gushing from a 12 m (40 ft) tall cliff, the water crashes into a small pool underneath, passing over smooth boulders as it runs. Named after the bears who come to drink water from the top of the falls, the site stands 10 minutes by foot from the nearest car park along a gently climbing trail. You can buy tea, water, and snacks at the entrance to the trek, but only during the monsoon season, as the falls reach their peak power in September and October.

Where to stay in Kodaikanal

Unsurprisingly, the most upmarket accommodations in Kodaikanal sit by the lake. Offering extensive views of the central water features and the hills rolling off into the horizon, the rooms in such establishments usually come with a nice set of amenities including onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Shoestring travelers that want a central location can opt for simple hotels in the town center to the east, while those wanting to get out of town altogether will find a few scattered hotels along the main roads, as well as rental bungalows in secluded spots.
