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.

  • The way to the falls seems a private property!! Roads are very narrow. You can easily get caught in a jam with to and fro traffic. Limited car parking. It's probably 15 mins steep climb down and then a climb up. Elderly, please stay away. Will test your fitness level for sure. It's worth a visit probably earlier in the morning when the crowd is less!
  • Good enough. Easily best thing in yercaud. You have multiple spots to enjoy the cold water falling on you. Negatives: Check availability of water before planning for it. Crowded at times. Parking area is complete mess. You need to go very early and finish early to avoid getting your vehicle stuck. Plan extra hour or two just for getting out of this traffic congestion.
  • It's a loooong walk through steep winding stairs. The falls by itself is not an impressive one but still it's beautiful. I must admit that the journey is awesome but prepare yourselves well. Carry light and wear good comfortable shoes. Not recommended for elders.
  • 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 nears 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.
  • From yercaud lake till the falls, very good natured estates both side. Nearing to falls road is very narrow, some places cannot pass two cars on opposite. Small parking place, can accommodate only 10 - 12 vehicles. While walking from the parking could hear the water falling sound. The steps to go down is very steeply.need very careful while getting down. Carry water bottles , will help when climbing back. Elders and leg knee pain patients should avoid.
