What to expect?
This trip involves trekking and rock climbing at some places. The length of trek is about 13 km from the base. The entry point is from the east side of the mountain from Arai village which has a parking space near the dam. Ideal time for visit is from Aug to Feb as the falls may be dry during summer. There are three falls. In the Google maps one can find the parking lot, dam and hiking trail. It also shows three falls one as Nagalapuram sliding rock which is the first one, Nagalapuram waterfalls, the second one and Swami Siddeswara kona waterfalls, the third. It is better to start the trek by 9 AM as it will give u lot of time to enjoy in all the falls. Local guides are available in Arai village and it’s better to take them as there is no definite path and it is confusing. It is better to take packed lunch and life jackets or balloons as the pools are deep.
The trek starts from the parking lot and for nearly 2 hours it involves just walk on the plains till we reach the stream of water. Take rest and enjoy the cool water. From here the trek will have lots of ups and downs and a bit slippery so be cautious.
