Bear Shola Falls - Review

Even if Bears did come to drink water in these falls once upon a time, the gawking crowds at these majestic waterfalls would have driven them away. Now mostly a tourist attraction, the Bear Shola falls are a beautiful sight highlighting nature’s bounty that is abundant in Kodaikanal. One can choose to take a trek over the falls but only the fairly healthy and courageous must venture to do so. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kodaikanal itinerary 2 days.

Bear Shola Falls, Kodaikanal Reviews

  • a popular tourist spots is one of the best places to spend few relaxed days of your lives. The hill station has varied kinds of options to keep its tourist engaged. One of the best examples of the same is Bear Shola Falls. Located at a distance of 2 km from the Kodaikanal Lake, the falls are 3 kilometres away from the bus-stand. Located in the Reserve forest, Bear Shola Falls is a perfect picnic spot offering a setting to just relax with your loved ones amidst lush greenery. The Bear Shola Falls derived its name from the fact that bears used to come to this fall for drinking water. The best time to visit the falls is during the rainy season when the water level is at its fullest and thus most beautiful. During non-monsoon season, there is not much water in the falls. If interested, one can also go for trekking here. It has a beautiful climbing path which is almost 1 km long inside the forest. Bear Shola Falls Timings : Monday to Sunday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm No entry fee

  • A once amazing place..but now secluded with not many people visiting the place as most of the time no water fall... When i.went years back in 1995 it was amazing.. we even went for trecking inside the place..but now ots more dry

  • It was a great experience here. U can get the experience only u should go to the top but it's too risky to go there. There is no steps over there. So, u should carefully check your foot path.

  • Place is good.. but can be cherished only if there is water in waterfall. So visiting in mid monsoon is advised. Else you may come back disappointed as there won't be any water in the waterfall.

  • It is nice waterfall one visit only, but the surround place of waterfall is not clean.
