Visited the falls on the way to kabbe hills as part of jeep safari. Beautiful drive through the misty hills and the views of the falls from afar are beautiful. The falls were in good form in December it was a pleasant experience.

However, once you reach the falls, you reach pretty close to the actual falls and could even take a dip in the pool (I strongly recommend to not do so, as... More
