The walk from the parking lot till the waterfall is through dense forest, very much enjoyable. Watching the waterfall and moving stream calms your mind. Near waterfall if you close eyes listening to the waterfall sound mixed with sounds form birds, insects , it will be great experience to merge with nature and even meditate, Chose morning time to visit to avoid crowd and their noises

We went in April 2022, which is not a season. we have to walk for 15 minutes from the gate and there are around 50 steps. We have to be careful since snakes may be present.
The place is calm and enjoyable if the crowd is less.
There are no handrails near the water falls, which is risky during heavy flow.
The car parking place is very nice with many open eateries. The ambience is nice and enjoyable.
Iruupu Rameshwar Siva temple is located near the parking area. It is in Kerala style and closes at 9 am.

We visited Irpu falls in July when monsoon was at its peak and it was a mesmerising site. This waterfall is about 2 hours drive from Madikeri, however worth the trip in monsoons. Entrance ticket costs about Rs. 50 per head. From entrance to the waterfall is a 1 km trek on very well maintained path.
Since this place is a bit far from Madikeri, crowd is also less, so you will get enough time for yourselves to enjoy the view.
I will highly recommend this place.

We were the only families there, it was like a private water fall for us. The fact that we went there just after monsoon, it was amazingly beautiful. Loved it

This was a mesmerising water falls, away from the hustle & bustle, in midst of nature. Only drawback is leeches in the monsoons season.

Irpu falls is on the way from Kutta towards Virajpet. Sign boards are plenty and google also gives exact drive instructions. The approach road is narrow and around 200mtrs from destination, the road is bad. Cars with low clearance need to be mindful.
Once you reach irpu temple you can take entry tickets (25 per head) and take an easy trek of around 750mtrs to the falls. There are atleast 100 steps to climb on the way.
You have to ensure that the local area had received rainfall before visiting. Otherwise you will be disappointed. I wonder why people don't research and visit places. Then they get disappointed and write reviews are if it way not their mistake.
I visited in October after monsoon, and the waterfall was in its best. You can hear the rumbling even before you reach the place.
Some people will make adhoc arrangement and will try to swim in the water. Please don't. Reason being this is inside Brahmagiri park area and there are lots of snakes. Good to view and witness the power of water.
If you need to cool down, trek back and have fruit juice/lemon soda near the entrance.

This place is around 45kms from JLR Kings Sanctuary and literally there was nothing. There's hardly any water in the falls and dirty pool of water which was overly crowded. There's an entry fee of Rs 50/ head which doesn't make any justice. The trek to the fall is around 750 Mtrs and is very easy
