To reach this place on must have a strong heart and a good vehicle. But the joy of seeing the fall is another thing altogether. We spent more than an hour! Not to mention we carried jaggery-coffee to keep us company!

It is a lovely sight in the monsoon season. The walk down to the pool is quite steep and recommended only for people who are fit. The others can watch it from 100ft away. Parking may be an issue when the tourist traffic is high.

The Chelavara Falls is known to be one of the most beautiful waterfalls in this region. The hill is foggy at most times. You can even see the Arabian Sea from this hill.
