From climbing rocks on all four, to hopping on stones to cross multiple streams, this is a hike packed with adventure. Most of the hike is a piece of cake but the real deal begins during the last bit of it, just before the waterfall. Whatever little trail helps you reach that far slowly disappears and you're left with steep slippery rocks that you need to climb up and down to reach the waterfall pool. But it is all worth the effort!
Although, post monsoon is the best season to enjoy the waterfall, there are a few things that need to be kept in mind:
- The trail gets slushy so make sure you wear proper shoes.
- The rocks that you'll be climbing get slippery due to water and algae, so it's important to go slow and wear hiking shoes for proper grip.
- The flow of the waterfall is very heavy and the pool is very deep. Don't venture into the deep part. Remember, it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
- Recently, two people drowned in the waterfall. So if you want to enjoy a dip in the pool, a life jacket is compulsory, You can rent one there on the spot itself and it'll cost you 200 rupees for 3 jackets.
- The trail to the waterfall is lined with nettle leaves which are venomous and can cause itching and burning if stung. So make sure you wear something that covers your legs and arms completely while hiking to the waterfall.
