Kiliyur Falls, Yercaud

2.7
#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.

  • It's situated in a place where you have to walk steep down and then take 200 steps down. It's recommended to go when water falls and absolutely not in month of may. Don't waste energy going down the h...  more »

  • Impressive and beautiful natural scenery. Have to walk quite a bit, mostly by stairs. The water fall, its is wide and tall and is pleasing to look at. Take care while going near the falls for a quick drench, the rocks are quite slippery. Also make sure that you ask the locals if water is flowing, could be dry sometimes.
  • Go there in the rainy season so that you can enjoy a lot! And there are approximately 300 steps there. Elders can't walk down.. bit tough for them. And in the season time please don't get your vehicles there.. since that road is a narrow one... you'll get struck in the traffic. There'll be a lot of vehicles you can't imagine!
  • Great such a beautiful place to visit and trip mountains.. Place to make mind peaceful. Enjoy with friends and family.. The water Falls is major thing we need to visit.. Go green city for youngsters....
  • The best place to visit during June to November as there is lot of water. The waterfall is beautiful. But the downside is that there are 270 steps that to steep. While climbing up, it is a great difficulty. So it is not advisable to take small children or elderly people.
  • You will welcomed by the stall owners who sell snacks, they will help you with parking your car too. The bread omelette and masala soda was good. You will have to walk 500 meters and then climb down around 100 steep steps to reach the falls. It can be difficult for old people or unfit young adults;) we went in the end of March and were disappointed, as there was no water whatsoever, dint feel like a waterfall, simply saw a few rocks and had fun climbing them. There a lot of monkeys present here.
