"Awesome falls on the way!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 30, 2016
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- Kumily road in which this falls is located.

"Beautiful falls"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Aug 14, 2015
One nice waterfalls in Munnar, this falls is on the right of the highway with a tea plantation on the other side which makes it probably unique. These waterfalls are really beautiful, you can even climb the mountain nearby for mild trekking as well.

"Nice waterfalls"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 5, 2014
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 every time we passed this place to take some time out.

"The panoramic view is awesome"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 14, 2014
The water fall originally starts from the top of the Western ghat, is visible and flows across Munnar Thekkady. Flows through one of the well maintained tea gardens of Kannan Deavan Hill Plantations. The panoramic view is awesome.
