Awesome falls on the way!

This waterfalls is located about 17 kms from Munnar town and we don't want to venture into the woods to reach this place. Its just adjacent to the road. Early mornings are perfect to visit this place. The roads connecting Munnar is a paradise for bikers. The same goes with the Munnar- Kumuli road in which this falls is located.

Beautiful falls

One nice water falls in Munnar, this is also view only. This falls is on the right of the highway with a tea plantation on the other side which makes it probably unique. These water falls are really beautiful. you can even climb the mountain nearby for mild trekking as well

Nice waterfalls

This was very near to the Sterling Resort where we stayed and was a treat to the eyes. Nice to hear the sound of water rushing through this place. We used to stop everytime we passed this place to take some time out
