Kiliyur Falls, Yercaud

(300+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
The waters of Yercaud Lake tumble 91 m (300 ft) across hundreds of slabs of rock, creating the foam and spray of Kiliyur Falls. After a scenic and steep descent of 300 steps into the lush forest, you can enjoy the sight of the crystal clear cataract. The quantity of water varies, so check for the best time to visit. The falls lie 2.5 km (1.6 mi) from the lake and some 30-40 minutes drive from Salem, a route well serviced by buses and taxis. The final 500 m (1,600 ft) of the trek to the falls are on a rough pathway that demands a certain fitness level. Make Kiliyur Falls a part of your Yercaud vacation plans using our Yercaud vacation planner.

  • Walk all the way downhills to enjoy the nature of Kiliyur Falls and enjoy the voice of nature. Good for trekking. Sad thing is the roads are not maintained well. Finally water falls with no water...Good place to visit during season.
  • Scenic place. We went in April, there was no water (not even a drop). Trekked to the top of the falls. Spectacular view. Note the following points. 1. Very steep climb. Need to be reasonably fit to reach the waterfalls 2. Not recommended for aged people. No safety features/ places to rest on the climb. 3. Carry sufficient water with you, but take care to hide it from the monkeys.
  • A drive of 14 kms from the busy yeracud town will take you to this Kiliyur falls. Its maintenance is average but steps to reach the falls have been improved. Recommended to visit from October to Jan to experience the falls.
  • it needs a long and tiring descent to get to the waterfall.. the waterfall is a small one.. u can have some peaceful moments but not worth the visit if you are interested in the waterfall
  • Nice falls. People can play in water at the base of the falls. But people have to walk quite a distance especially the steps which are bit steep and not adviced for elders.going down is easy but while coming back people were struggling on steps.
