A beautiful place to enjoy with your buddies

These waterfalls are at a 190 kms away from the karimnagar city. A nice place to get relief from all the stress. The mesmerizing sound of water gives you a good music, the best time to visit these are after 12:00pm. The one con is here i. e, the annoying stairs, you have to be patient while going and coming from these steps they are above 100.

Beauty of nature

Very nice place to visit, film shooting also done there. Nice place to visit with the family and it is free, you can take photos and videos also. Small children likes the place very much. You have to drive in the forest to visit the waterfalls which is also a special attention.

Nice to enjoy but be careful in the water

I went there to visit the waterfalls, the experience was very amazing my children enjoyed. There is a danger of falling in the water its about 200 steps and surrounded by evergreen forests and also natural herbs and animals in the night.

Highest water fall in Adilabad

Good place to visit in rainy and winter season. In rainy season you have to only enjoy by looking because the flow is very high. In summer you can cross the fall from one side to another to see Lord Shiva temple which you can not see during monsoon season.
