  • We are not allowed to take bath in the waterfalls but can swim in the safe part of the stream. Need to buy tickets. Walk through the woods for a while and then we can take a bath. Forest dept staff will be there to guide us. Good and safe place for family bachelors as well as couples
  • Place can be defined as beauty of nature. Those who like to enjoy the beauty of nature and waterfalls this is one of the best place. This place comes under the Kerala Eco tourism. Now there is a timing from 9 A.M to 4.30 P.M. After 4.30 pm they won't permit to enter inside. Entry fee is there for adults it's 30 rps and need to pay extra if you bringing your camera(50 rps). Staffs are there to guide you inside. They won't let anyone to go in water cause already 24 people died over there. There is a small trekking inside the waterfalls. It's almost 12 km but now its restricted to about 1 km. After that you can go with special permission along with the guards. There is a very small car parking slot outside. Now people can't get into the water and play in the waterfalls. Aanachadikuth Waterfalls is an another waterfalls nearby this almost 1 km long where you can take bath and play in the water. There is no entry fee and timing. People's are staying nearby and it's an another beauty of nature.
  • A beautiful place to visit. There are lot of places to walk, take pics and just enjoy. There are spots where u can take a dip. There is a tree house. One has to walk some distance to reach the falls. On way there is a photo gallery and if lucky you can see one animals. The highlight is obviously the fall. We visited it some years back. There should be some changes and improvements.
  • Good place to hangout and light trekking,basic amenities are available. The place is clean and tidy in most of the parts. Parking facilities need improvement.
  • Place of natural beauty. Can enjoy the calmness of forest and small waterfalls. Best for family outings
