If you're there at the right time, consider yourself the luckiest! One of most beautiful waterfalls! A romantic atmosphere too. P. S.: Want to feel like Preetham in Mungaru Male? Go stand at the head of Roarer

Only On special days, sometimes on Week End Sunday they open Gates. As this is rainy season you can enjoy the water flow.
