Beautiful no longer. Dirty and full of garbage

This waterfall has the potential to be awesome and is awesome during monsoons. But during winters one can see the dirt and unclean part of this place. When we went the waterfall was not that strong and all the small ponds, gaps on the rocks were full of garbage (plastics, empty chips packets). The locals seem to come here regularly for picnic, but they don't seem to price it so much and dirty it a lot. There are a few hawkers who sell snacks nearby, but even they don't provide garbage bins and people just loiter around.
