Agasthiyar Falls Reviews & Ratings
Amazing place. Try to go early in the morning so that you can enjoy the best. Access to falls is open between 7am to 5 pm. Almost all round the year water is available since it is controlled through upper dam. Not many hotels inside but small shops for food and water. Enjoy
Agasthiyar waterfalls was located at Papanasam. The water from the waterfalls contains lots of medicinal products for good health. The falls won't get dry for a single day in a year.
Your only chance to get drenched in a water fall when there is no water in Courtralam. Since the water source is from a dam, flow is throughout the year and a trip safer. Falls area is quiet small to accommodate a large number but force is good. Reserve security guards are helping to take turns so everybody gets a fair chance. This place is tipsy. Police is securing the place as it gets annoying sometimes especially male side of the falls.
Amazing place. Try to go early in the morning so that you can enjoy the best. Access to falls is open between 6am to 5 pm. Almost all round the year water is available since it is controlled through upper dam. Plastic is prohibited and checkpost will be opening @ morning 6 am.
Had been there for a short picnic. Had a good time with all the bathing. Usually the waterfall never runs out of water. But sometimes it barely trickles droplets of water. And the main spot of this tourist spot is still to be renovated. There are separate sections for men and women and no one should bath in the place where they don't belong. ( Men in men's area and women in women's). Sounds like a public restroom. Yeah it will hardly be a romantic trip if you prefer here for family.
