"Calm and quiet place. We went there as family. My 4yr old and 6yr old son were able to complete the trek. There is a small waterfall at the end of the trek. Great for one day outing with family!!!"

"Beautiful place. A must visit if you are in Palakkad. It is an one hour trek from the bottom of the hill to the Dhoni falls (Around 4 to 4.5 km). Roads are made of gravel. You need to pay Rs.20 to the forest department per person. Time just runs by as you start to walk and there are lot of shortcuts. Water is absolutely tasty and pure on the falls. If you are planning to swim, beware of the falls. There has been few incidents in the recent past. Make sure you know to swim as there is a deep trench. Would come again! :)"
