A kilometre of uphill trek brings one to the waterfall, considered the highest in Andhra Pradesh. Nothing more refreshing than that bone chilling water falling on your head. Awesome experience.

This is a waterfalls situated in the forest areas near Tirupati. Road to reach this place is good and covered with greenery, except for the last two kms, which is a mud road. You have to walk about 750 mtrs, to reach the falls, from the final parking lot. This path is good. At the time of our visit, though... More

This is a nice and quiet place. We had reserved the forest guest house in advance for stay. It is economical and safe. We reached the falls from the guest house on foot and on reaching the place, we should climb up-hill and it is not difficult as the pathway is like stairs. There is a short trek to reach... More

These waterfalls are naturally borned by the attachments of hills and their curves. Best enjoyable place near tirupati for youngsters and family teens to enjoy. Food was available sometimes near here by small shopkeepers.
