  • Exceptional view if you visit just after the monsoon, say in October. You can even bathe, sitting on a tiny island-like rock, in the water falling on you from high above. Totally different. Just a few meters away in front, there is a mini Niagara. ENJOY THE GUSH.
  • Nice water fall. Best for family visiting. One can spent couple of hours. There are nearly about 750 stairs. There is a parking lot too. But the food is so costly and bad. You should get some dry foods with you before visiting or you can eat in Dhabas. But don't eat in the restaurants there. Very bad experience. They costs a lot and very poor service and bad food.
  • A safe waterfall amongst those in jharkhand.Moreover,a pleasurable trip to here makes one forget stress and tensions.The best getaway from the hustle-bustle of the city.
  • Family picnic spot... In nature bed... Can enjoy hil greeneries and water falls... Approx 700 step was there not good to visit with kid bellow 5 years
  • It's awesome place for tourism. There's not doubt of money and time...
