The water from the falls flows through the lush green dense forests and then meets the Krishna River. This place instantly transports you to another world altogether, as it is a treat to the tourists. As the falls flow in the forest, it is believed that many tigers from the Nallamalla forest visit here to drink water during the season of summer.

 The steps to reach the falls are well constructed. You can drench in the water and enjoy the joyous experience. The pool below the water is restricted and closed with fencing as it is risky and dangerous.

This is one of the enchanting place and very ideal spot to spend a day with your friends and family. As the falls are surrounding by the trees, the reflection of the freen trees fall on the water, making the water look green in colour. But, the water falling up from the rocks, with a great gush and flow seem to be white and fresh. You can take few pictures and refresh. . Hence, buckle up and plan soon to enjoy and experience these falls.
