One of the other places to visit in Yelagiri is the Jalagamparai Waterfalls. This waterfall can be found at a short distance away from the main Yelagiri area and is located on the other side of the main hill station area.
The falls are located just 14 km away from Tirupattur. The famous Attaru River meanders through the mighty Yelagiri Hills and cascades down from a considerable height to form a beautiful and captivating waterfall which is a popular tourist attraction.
The cascades are just about a 5 km walk from the Yelagiri downhill with most people preferring to walk or trek to the falls. Despite having a direct pathway from Yelagiri to the falls, this route is often closed for safety purposes.
In order for you to make your way to the destination, you would need to go down the hill to reach the plains and then journey on to climb the hill on the other side. Even though the journey might take an hour on foot, it is a pleasurable one.
The waterfall looks its resplendent best during the early days of the month of November to around mid-February for the water that flows is in abundance as compared to the other months in the year. In fact, during the summer months, the water flow from the falls reduces considerably as compared to a few years back.
Despite the shortage of water, the scenic beauty more than makes up for it.
