  • Water was chill and pure. Not very deep waters. Area was bit cold even during afternoon time, it was bit rainy day. Fully occupied by boys. Sliding down the sloppy water is risky. Ladies getting in water were less. There is no separate foot path. Have to walk amount the tea plantation. difficult for old age.

  • The place was very awesome. But from our experience, I say that the place is a very dangerous for women, children and also aged people. No safety measures were taken to make tourists feel comfortable. Many challenges (risks) have to be taken before reaching the mesmerizing falls. Firstly you have to climb up a really big slope. Then cross a ditch leading straight down to the bottom of the estate. Then you have to walk through a really tiring maze in the estate. No indication of the falls was there until we crossed half of the estate. It was really a very critical trek down and up the estate. If it is our bad time we may have to encounter snakes or any animal filled with venom or "majestic carnivorous animals". After crossing the bid steep and scary estate, we came to its bottom and a plant really loved by snakes was there​. After finishing this nightmare we reached the breathtaking view of the falls. And another thing is that the way to the falls was not indicated in sign boards. My best advice is don't visit it during rainy season. Its truly advised to visit the falls with a really experienced person. The road to the falls is situated in a unknown place. Every step should be taken very carefully. It was a really thrilling and a fabulous experience in the falls. No other place can give a experience like this . After every harsh path there is truly amazing place. This really suits the falls and the way to it. Surely amusing place to visit.
