Located near the River Nila (Bharathapuzha), a visit to this fall is nothing less than a treat for nature lovers. The existence of this mesmerizing waterfall is mostly because of the local communities, living by the Chalakudy River, who together stopped the construction of a hydroelectric dam upstream from this waterfall. If made, dam would have led to the submersion of about 140 hectares of forest area, dried various streams as well as destroyed this captivating waterfall.
