This path will take you to the bottom of the waterfall. To reach the top of the waterfall you need to climb upstream through a rubber estate with no clear visible path.

There is a moderately deep pool at the top which is suitable for bathing during dry seasons. There is another shallow pool above this which is more suitable for kids.
