It is nearly 2 to 3 hour drive from Bangalore. The best time of the year to visit the place will be during Monsoon. However, even in dry seasons its good to behold t.he beauty of the falls.

This is a good time to visit because of the weather, but water in the falls could be less due to scanty rainfall
