Beautiful place for a hangout

It's a very nice place for nature lovers. A place to relieve from all your tensions and stresses. It's really a nice forest area with water bodies and tea estates. It's a nice place to spend your time.

A spot which we can't miss and worth visiting

Chinna Kallar is one such spot which we can't miss while visiting the tourist attractions near Valparai. Situated about 25 Kms from Valparai, Chinnakallar is known as the Cherrapunji of Tamil Nadu because of the maximum rainfall received and when we visited this month the area was completely wet and covered with mist most of the time. Chinnakallar is full of greenish dense forest with tall majestic trees which give a pleasant feeling. We had to pay Rs. 100/ to enter the area and were warned by the forest officials that the wild elephants were crossing the road. It added to the thrill, we saw few elephants and had to stop the car for nearly an hour. The Chinnakallar falls, hanging bridge, the wild animals all gave a memorable experience. Because of the mist and the warning about the elephants on the road, we drove slowly and the trip took more time than what we planned. But the feel was tremendous and we are planning to visit the place again in few months.

A great fun place

Its worth visit the place. You have to walk up to 200 metres for the waterfalls through the Rope Bridge. It is of course fun.

Little waterfalls

This place we enjoyed with our family members. But they did not allow us to take bath since it is very slippery and belongs to forest control. They are charging 100 rupees per head which is very high cost. Reaching this falls via hanging bridge experience was nice.
