Good time to spend with friend. During summer it is too scorching heat. On the way scenery is good. Suggest to go on a bike trip.

Good place, don't venture to get down near the falls. You can have good look from the view point. My sincerest request is try to keep the area clean. Avoid bottles and plastic.

What a beautiful waterfall, if only there was no garbage around. But then Banglore stinks, so put up with it and get out to this serene place.
