  • It is a beautiful waterfall on the Munnar - Theni route. We can stop there and enjoy the eye-catching beauty of the waterfall which is in the middle of the tea plantation. It's really heavenly!! The falls is situated in the Tata tea plantation (private property). So we can't enter there. But can enjoy it from the road side. The area is very cold and covered by the fog most frequently. It's an experience!! We can see tea plantations on both sides of the road. The water from the fall is flowing through the plantation passing the road. The evening view is mesmerizing! We can enjoy it with a hot corn or tea with bujjies which is available in the road side shops. All we need to do is just stop there and enjoy.
  • Along the road to Theni from Munnar is an absolutely stunning waterfall. We are able to make a stop there so that we can take in the breathtaking scene of the waterfall that is located in the centre of the tea plantation. It is truly out of this world! In the middle of the Tata tea plantation is where the falls may be found (private property). Therefore, we are unable to go in there. But you can still appreciate it from the side of the road. The region has an extremely low average temperature and is regularly shrouded in fog. It's quite the adventure!! On either side of the road, there are tea plantations that we can see. The water from the waterfall is pouring past the road as it makes its way through the plantation. The view in the evening is really breathtaking! We are able to enjoy it with a cup of hot corn or tea accompanied with bujjies, all of which are sold at the roadside shops. We might simply come to a halt there and take pleasure in the scenery.
