A very beautiful hill station just a couple of kilometres away from Kodaikanal, this is a place you can visit throughout the year. The temperature is low throughout the year and thus do not forget to carry warm clothes whenever you go there. The rocks and watchpoints here are places from where you will get the best views of the surrounding valleys and mountains. The main points here are the Dolphin's nose and the Suicide Point.
Silver Cascade Falls
Silver Cascade Falls: These falls are located at quite a distance from the town. The road to the falls is fun to travel on due to the steep descent and hairpin bends. This waterfall is the highest among the ones we encountered in Kodaikanal. And unlike other falls, this one had good flow of water even during off-season, the waterfalls experiences enormous flow during monsoons making it an amazing sight to witness.
Bear Shola Falls
Bear Shola Falls: It is located close to Kodaikanal Lake. Earlier, bears would come here to quench their thirst. Now, however, travellers come here to visit these unique falls nestled in the forest. The falls is dry in the summer season. I couldn't find any water as I went in the summer.
Kumbakarai was six kms from Periyakulam, so we decided to go by walk. We crossed nearly one and half kms, and the food we ate made us stop. Stopped a crossing share auto and asked him to drop in Kumbakarai falls. Meanwhile we have decided to reach Kodaikanal via Vellagavi (One can reach this village from Dolphin Nose point Kodaikanal. You have to trek down few Kms to reach here), climbing from kumbakarai falls. We reached the Falls entrance and everything was closed. One Akka came and told, just now a forest officer left from this pace, you have to take permission form forest ranger and for that we have to travel back 20 kms to Devanathapatti to get the permission. We were in a dilemma whether we need permission to climb the hill.The half an hour confusion
