"Go here with some friends! It's a must visit place in rishikesh. We took a taxi to the trailhead (tourist entry was 50 rupees and Indian entry is 30), played in the beautiful water and had some amazing chai at the very top pool. At the top pool/ fall, there was a great sense of gravity nestled in between the hills. Makes you wonder about nature and the religious town that is rishikesh!"

"A serene place and such beauty to experience. There are three tiers to this waterfall. Trekking should be done up until the first tier only if you take kids along. If you are a trek group you should trek up above the first tier to admit magnificent views . If you trek above waterfall you will find a habitafion there. You can get good tea or noodles there :)"

"It is a great place, the trek and bike ride to the place are moderately steep and hard to manoeuvre. You have to reach to the highest of the falls, out the the three pool kind of places. It has a great pool kind of place and water is clean. Suggest to go early morning so that you can beat the rush hours."

"Its a very nice place with multiple small waterfalls and two big waterfalls with proper pool under them, completely safe for visiting and swimming. You can take you bike / car to the place, the road is not good after the national highway but distance is small so moving with slow speed will make the journey comfortable. After parking your vehicle you will reach first waterfall after climbing about 100 stairs. Its a nice view with clean water. Then there is 2 KM trek to visit the next waterfall. Second waterfall is smaller then the first one. Must to do at second waterfall : Take bath under the waterfall, swim in the pool under that, water maximum height is five and half feet so its safe if you are not scared of water, and satiate your hunger with the freshly cooked tasty veg maggie at cost of Rs. 40/- and that will be worth it."
