The experience depends a lot on the season. The amount of water was average and the experience was likewise. A nice place but not something special.

These falls are very accessible being on the main road. Lots of people stop as a result so this is a busy place. Nonetheless the waterfall is impressive, cascading down. A very high cliff for nearly 100 metres. Worth a stop.

It was a joy to just jump in fully clothed into this delicious waterfall. It was so beautiful, and such fun. There were lots of locals there and we all just swam and laughed together.. a delight. Its pretty spectacular, and the geology is fascinating but of course, it's a bit slippy.. but worth every unsure foot.

We stopped here for 30minutes and we decided to take a bath in the waterfall. However everyone (locals and also tourists) were having all their clothes on, so be prepared to get there with your clothes on if you are a girl. Or not. If you really dont care. Its really nice here, and its also refreshing. I can only... More

Frankly speaking, we stopped there only for a quarter of an hour, because there were so many tourists, and none of us liked to climb up a bit through all the other site seers. But it is a nice place for sure.

Nice waterfall but if you have seen any waterfall before it's not that impressive. Would not make a trip just to see it but a good stop on your way into/ out of Ella.

Very beautiful falls, some people even try swimming in one section of it. There are some lovely kiosks around selling raw gem stones, fruits, and other souvenirs.
