You have to walk for 10 minutes and then climb up & down 100 stairs to reach at a point where the fall is dry. There is very less water in the fall and it is not well maintained. I will not recommend this place...More

Went to Pykara on a cold rainy day! Pretty amazing place to chill out. Over-crowded when we went there. You can just have a walk in the surrounding areas with a glass of masala corn and have a nice time!
