  • One of the best tourist attraction I had ever visited. Natural environment with medicinal value of water falls. Giving new experience. Normally the water from the falls is very chill. Lot of monkeys and birds are there. Falls is located in the Western ghats of theni district. Best time to go there - June to December
  • People cosider this is a holy place. Water level is medium. But good rejuvenating place.The nature view of this place is a extraordinary. People's duty is need to keep clean. Loved it
  • One of the best place to visit in Theni district. Don't go on summer (Tamil Nadu State) and peak rain time ( Kerala State). And also need to wall some distance from entry gate to falls. Try to arrange your own transport, government transport have less frequent.
  • Thats was a wonderful experience when I planned for a trip to Munnar. I gone to this location for a refreshing bath. This place remains the same as i seen before at my childhood. My all time favourite spot😇❤️😇
  • Season is August to December. Lavish amount of water s available to have an open shower under natural suruli water falls. Security officers are always on duty. Lacks in basic aminities ..Wild animals are roaming around...This s located in a dense Forest.Tall trees offer an unleashed shades of big green canopy... Naturally breezing wind cools the premises..An ideal location for families.. Children and people of all ages can be seen enjoying the wild nature...Parking facility s available with a nominal charge under the supervision of department of forest. From the base camp visitors are expected to pay some penny to have an entree ticket, then bus services are offered by same department for visitors those who don't wish to walk 2km to reach at the bottom of water falls.On the either sides of the road separate rest rooms are offered for both genders separately.A good place to spend an afternoon with family or friends.On the way to this destination the plains are farmed with grape.
