Cradled deep within the Western Ghats this pearly white cascade adorned by emerald-like spice and coffee plantations spread around it, is food for the wanderer’s soul and a sheer Keatsian delight as you take a leisurely hike to the hanging bridge to view the waterfall.
You could spend hours here, admiring Nature’s exquisite beauty or choose to capture its essence in photographs or sketches, if you feel artsy enough. Although it is not advisable to take a plunge into the rugged swirling depths of these waters, there’s nothing against immersing yourself in the strangely calming roar of the falls as you sit and ponder over the local myths surrounding the name of the waterfall.
