These falls are very popular with tourists. It is a bewitching site, the fall dropping down about 80 ft high. Combining with greenery, it infuses energy and peace into any tired soul. The cool misty waters cascading down in the backdrop of the thick green forests and rocky terrain, are a scintillating experience to any visitor or tourist.The Vazhachal waterfall is yet another attraction here with its spread out waters offering a pleasing sight.
