very difficult to reach the spot, without a guide taking us,we would not have been able to figure out the way. We tripped and fell into water couple of times, but was fully worth the effort. Falls were in full flow and lovely to see

Visited this place during monsoons. Its a good waterfall to play around. The path from main road to waterfall is adventurous and interesting. Taking a shower in the waterfall will leave you vere refreshing. Its a good place to click some pictures.
