After short trekking of we lock point then I started another half hour trekking to visit this beautiful waterfall of pykara. Situated on the Ooty Mysore road, this waterfall is around 20 km away from Ooty. Developed as a picnic spot, this place is ideal to come and relax while admiring the scenic beauty of the waterfall and greenery around. You will find lots of foods option here like hot Maggie or egg bhurji or dosa or other delicious dishes.

Pykara Falls and Boat houseThis fall is 1 km away from the parking lot and requires walk or electric cart to reach. From the tickets counter we climbed down a long flight of stairs but after doing so much of hard work, visioning White milky water gushing down through reddish brown rocks was stunning. I found the location picturesque and it was very satisfying to provide all eyes and ears to the falls. The water from the falls run down to Pykara lake where the boat house is located, which has various boats for ride. Boat ride is a thrilling experience, makes you feel relaxed in cool and breezy environment.

Monsoon season and waterfalls definitely hold a strong bond. The white waters gushing through the rocks, makes this place a worth watching destination in Ooty. The velocity of the stream is quite high and you can hear the intensity from a far distance.
