The next day hotel staff suggested us to visit irupu falls which is nearly 70km away. It takes 2hrs to reach iruppu falls but being a free day we started our journey after breakfast.

The falls are quite far from the main road.A half hour nature trek leads to the Falls.Way to falls is beautiful,birds sound, forest.

Bathing in the falls is permitted (dressing rooms and toilets are available). The falls offers a great spot to take pics, one ought to be careful as the rocks may be slippery.
