Needless to say, the car was fully loaded with people. I had been to this falls eight years ago. At that time, I had to trek for 5 kms to reach the falls. Now, there is a nice tar road almost to the falls barring the last 0.5 kms. There is also a view point to watch the falls.
Nice view of a river on the way to falls.
