  • This place is such a beauty. You have to park the vehicle on the other side of the road. We walked ~1 km to reach the waterfall area. They charge for camera as well. If you are carrying 2 cameras...

  • The falls is on the other side of the lake. You have to go down a series of steps to reach the lake and see the falls. Except toilet facility and buggies from the road, no food or bathing facilities.....  more

  • Pykara falls is a good place for photos. If you are visiting for something extraordinary then you won’t find it at Pykara Falls. It is a quite decent place to get good clicks. The waterfall is small. I feel like during rain it would look more beautiful. We went in starting of June just when monsoon arrived.
  • It's not a typical water falls... just back stream of water that falls from small rocks. Surroundings is okay. But I personally feel, you can skip this if you don't have time. Yes you can visit for a casual walk...
