One who loves to drive in hill stations, then kolli hills is the best place. Awesome 72 hair pin bends. Avoid driving in late evenings since 2 to 3 bends are really steep. Roads are pretty good. You cannot find 3 or 4 star resorts...More

Good place for trekking enthusiasts. Worth going down 1086 steps for falls. While returning back one can easily burn his calories a lot :P

I visited the falls two days ago. The climb down more than 1000 steps is worth it. There are many rocks just near the falls as any other. can be visited with family. not for the elderly. must visit for travel and trekking enthusiasts.
