Can be visited during or soon after monsoon between July and October. Advice not to venture into waters. Self restraint is advised. Could give a five star provided there is good infrastructure. Doesn't have an approach Road.

The way to the falls is having a narrow road. Normal drivers can't manage to drive to falls. No water in the falls. The people living there reported no rainfall for couple of years. Can skip this place from your list for Coorg visit.

This is one of the best water falls in Coorg. Here we can get in to water and in the top of the falls we can see big lake. Little far from city. Not much improved. Parking has a problem sometimes.

Falls are beautiful. The amount of water is also Good. 1) It is located around 60KMs from Madikeri. So leave early. 2) No entry Fees. 3) Swimming is prohibited. Maybe due to some accidents. 4) Place is not maintained properly. 5) Visit early to this place and then if possible YOU can plan a Trek to Brahmagiri Hills.

There are a lot of hang around places near the water falls and also the way to reach it requires quite a bit of trekking and is narrow. Prefer visiting just after monsoons. The place can be crowded at times.
