Kiliyur Falls, Yercaud

#2 of 6 in Parks in Yercaud
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. Plan trip to Yercaud with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • Falls is good and enjoyable. You need to park your car then walk for 1 km. Then get down by the steps(almost 200 - 250 steps). The same way you have to come back. Dont forget to take water bottle with...  more »
  • Very chill and near place to enjoy with your friends. Be safe while enjoying . there are no lifeguard to save your life. very good neat water. Aged people may not climb up the falls .. above the falls its like an lake view awesome beauty of the falls
  • Nice Waterfall. But you have to get down so many steps. Difficult for elders and children. Teens and youth can enjoy and can even take bath in the waterfall. It's worth for them. Cars can be parked about 200 metre from the entrance to falls. Thereafter you have to take steps. Beware of skidding in rainy seasons.
  • The falls is situated in a really pristine location. But the falls itself isn't so great. The path to the falls is a really good exercise and the place is really well maintained! The best time to visit is during the rainy season as during other seasons it almost runs dry. A really good place to be at in the evening time.
  • Great place to cool down. Beware of 200 steps climb up. Also advisable to park car far from the parking area. Will avoid all mess with cab drivers. A walk on the road is good. I visited during January end and there was sufficient water falling.
  • We need to climb down a lot of steps to reach the actual spot. The steps are not comfortable to climb. I had visited during the off season, so didn't see much water. The views are great. Lots of places to climb around for the adventurous people. There is quite a bit of pollution problem and littering.
