Mollem National Park
When you arrive at the gates to this national park, your journey is far from over. The park is a ‘plastic-free’ zone. Plastic bottles, if any, will need to be left at the gate. Moreover, there is also a charge for taking photography equipment into the park (Rs. 50/- for still cameras, and Rs.250/- for a video camera). A jeep takes you on a 12-km drive through the jungle of the western ghats, driving through rivers and over the rocks. After the drive, you alight around 350 meters from the base of the falls. The last part of the trip has to be completed on foot, so you need to have suitable footwear. On the way, you might get a glimpse of the monkeys that live around the pool. Once at the base of the falls, you are free to dangle your feet in the cool waters, or even swim in the large pools.
